Apple adds 'Best New Updates' category for iOS App Store games

updated 02:27 am EDT, Fri June 27, 2014

Adds clarity to 'Best New Games' section, showcases recently-refreshed titles

Readers have reported that Apple is continuing to tweak the app-discovery experience in the iOS App Store, and on Thursday added a new "Best New Updates" section for iOS games, drawing user attention to recently-refreshed titles separate of the existing "Best New Games" section, which would sometimes contain updated rather than genuinely new titles. The move should benefit games that fall into both categories by clarifying updated versus all-new titles.



The change, first noticed by AppleInsider features 19 recently-updated titles ranging from Plants vs. Zombies 2 to Zynga's FarmVille 2: Country Escape, with most of the "Best New Updates" revised within the last week or so. Apple began offering curated "Best of Games" and "Best of Apps" sections in May, also in service to helping potential buyers more easily find the latest and best selections within the ever-growing App Store, which now offers more than a million apps and games.
