Apple to allow users to gift App Store in-app purchases to friends

One of the best things when it comes to Apple iOS lies in its App Store. There are over 2 million apps on the App Store, making it one of the largest app stores on the market. Apple has been improving its own App Store for years, introducing new features and changes. The App Store is now more visually appealing than before.

In reality, developers now focus more on the Apple App Store as they tend to launch their new apps to iPhone and iPad owners ahead of Android release. In April 2018, Epic Games brought Fortnite, one of the most played battle royale games on the market, to all compatible iPhone models. Meanwhile, the game is available in select Android devices. And the reason behind this lies in Appleā€™s optimized operating system.


However, the Apple App Store still lacks some exciting features. One such feature lies in the ability to gift in-app purchases to friends. Sources say that the Apple App Store will be the first App Store with this feature. In reality, Google has been working on something similar, but it remains unclear when it makes it official. The Apple App Store is now allowing users to gift apps to their friends using email. However, the ability to gift in-app purchases is a different story as it requires more steps. It remains unknown how Apple will manage to make it happen, but sources claim that users will use email to redeem codes.

Sources say that Apple has been working on a new user interface for its Apple Music. Tech experts claim that the App Store will get a significant upgrade in iOS 13, which is set for WWDC 2019 debut. In June, Apple announced iOS 12 at the event following months of anticipation. iOS 12 is not a huge upgrade over the OS, but it comes with a bunch of new things that have been demanded for years like Screen Time or Group FaceTime calling.

Apple is believed to resume production of its older iPhone models. Sources say that the Cupertino firm is seeing a slow sales performance on the market. And Apple is planning something special to boost its sales.
