Apple removes the free App of the week from the App Store

Phone Arena

As you know, the App Store has undergone a major redesign in iOS 11. And overall, it’s all good news for us: a simplified and friendly interface, more apps than ever… but there’s something we don’t like. The free app of the week has disappeared .

Until now, every Thursday in Cupertino they updated this section of the App Store offering us a free app for iPhone and iPad users to download. Unfortunately, this section is no longer available since September 19th , iOS 11 release date.

Instead, this tab has been replaced by “Today” , an area where we see the app of the day according to Cupertino accompanied by a small review. But of course, if the app of the day is a paid application, it is still paid and you will have to open your wallet to download it. And if it’s free, it’s still free. The same can be said of the new “game of the day” action, which highlights a game from the App Store every day.

With iOS 11, Apple made changes to the App Store to make navigation easier for users . And they probably thought that it was more important for users to find the apps they are looking for rather than keep finding bargains, promotions and offers. Like everything at Apple, nothing is definitive and perhaps this section of this week’s free app will return soon, but for the moment we’ve run out.

So remember that at iPadizate we offer you a daily selection of the best iPhone and iPad apps that are exclusively and temporarily on promotion at zero cost. We don’t know when the offer will run out, so we recommend that you follow us every day and as soon as they are available for download, because Apple is not going to make it easy for us.
