Many people only use a small number of apps on a daily basis. However, there are some who would always like to have all the brand new and trendy apps installed on their smartphones. As there are a great number of new apps in the works constantly, it’s quite hard to keep up with all the novelty in the market. Apple wants to solve the problem by allowing users to pre-order apps from the App Store. This way, they will be among the first ones to get the apps, even if they forget to download it on the day of their launch.
While this is in the first place, a good thing for those who always want to have the latest apps on their Apple gadgets, it is also good for developers. They can make their apps available for pre-order up to 90 days prior to their launch. This way, they can get a clear image of how popular their apps will be before even launching it, which is pretty cool. Also, in these three months, developers can add or remove features and just perfect their work. For users, there is another bonus when pre-ordering an app from the App Store. In case the price of the app fluctuates in the 90-days period, they will be able to get it for the lowest price.
Users can place their pre-orders in the 90-days period prior to the launch of the new apps. The app will automatically be downloaded to their Apple gadgets on the day it is published. At the same time, Apple will charge users for the purchase. This way, users will never forget to download the latest trendy apps ever again. They will simply appear on the devices of the users who pre-ordered them. The possibility to pre-order App Store apps doesn’t only concern iPhones or iPads. Apple also offers macOS and tvOS users to benefit from the new feature.
