Is there an iPhone app that isn't officially available in your country but you still want to try out, explore, and take for a spin? If yes, we have the solution for you.
Once you follow the steps below, you will be able to see and download apps on your iPhone even if they are not released in your country's App Store. The steps require a few minutes but are straightforward. Let us show you how to do that and and also over a few limitations.
The size of an app you see in its App Store description is not always precise and particular for your device. What is showed is actually the maximum size for this app. The size of the same app for your specific iPhone may be far less than what's shown. In this tutorial, we show you a handy tip to know the exact file size of the iOS app or the app update on your iPhone. Once you know this, it can help manage your limited data plan and the local storage.
Way back in August of this year, Apple started promoting in-app events hosted within the App Store. It's a quick and easy way for developers to show off high-profile elements within their apps, including in-game competitions, content premieres, and much more. At the time, it was expected that the feature would go live alongside the public launch of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. However, that did not turn out to be the case. But Apple's finally ready to welcome the feature and launch it to the public.
The landscape for digital storefronts is changing quite a bit. That is thanks, at least in part, to a lot of outside voices demanding those changes. Apple, for its part, remains reluctant to make any sweeping changes that don't ultimately benefit the company. But, it has made some changes, and there appear to be even more in the works. Meanwhile, Google has had to make some changes to its Play Store, too, and today marks the arrival of yet another.
It has been a long while since Apple hosted a developer "Tech Talk." The company used to host them on a pretty regular basis years ago, but they ended the run back in 2016. At the time, and by the next year, it looked like Apple wasn't planning on bringing them back. And that was the case for several years, but, here we are in 2021, and Apple has seen a way forward with new developer talks.
Technically speaking, after plenty of attention and pressure put on Apple, the company does allow for cloud-based streaming services to be used on its devices. However, it's not via the App Store, and it's not with an app via the App Store. Instead, services like Microsoft's Xbox Cloud Gaming, Google's Stadia, and Amazon's Luna are accessible via Safari. But it sounds like Apple's considered something else for its own service.
Earlier this year, the South Korean government enacted the Telecommunications Business Act. With it, the legislative body ruled that companies designated as having market dominance must allow for alternative payment options beyond first-party ones. Unsurprisingly, despite Google being a primary focus for the new law, Apple has picked up the majority of attention due to its own rules for the App Store.
Back in September, Judge Yvonne Gonzalez-Rogers came to a decision regarding the lawsuit against Apple brought by Epic Games. The latter wants change when it comes to the former's digital storefront, the App Store, and, by all accounts, earned itself a pretty big win in that regard. However, the judge's ruling also included many wins for Apple, too -- but the company has decided to appeal anyway.
In a major reversal, the App Store's Report a Problem link is back after being removed without explanation a few years ago. This time around, however, the feature includes a pair of significant improvements that are aimed at better tackling scams and fraud on the platform.
Are you sick and tired of serving as a guinea pig for Apple's flawed software engineering (we're looking at you, Podcasts)? If so, then you'll be surprised to learn that App Store now finally permits people to rate and review preinstalled Apple apps for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.
Changes, they are a-coming. Apple's not too pleased with it, and Google might be arguing behind the scenes, but when the legal decisions arrive there's not much else they can do. That's the situation in South Korea, where the government ruled that both companies need to allow alternative App Store payments.
Earlier this month, the judge overseeing the legal action between Apple and Epic Games came to a decision. With it, it mostly ruled in Apple's favor -- with the exception of one major ruling. However, there is still room for appeals. And Epic Games is even appealing one of the decisions on its own. As a result, it's not quite as finalized as some might hope, including Apple and Epic.
