Newcomers to the App Store in iOS 6 will now be confronted with a selection of Apple’s free apps, including Find My Friends and Find My iPhone, and will have the option of downloading all of the applications presented with one tap of a “Download Free” virtual button.
At the new App Store page, the following message is displayed:
To get the most out of your iPhone, we would recommend these free apps from Apple.
The promoted apps include only Apple’s free offerings, with no sign of paid apps such as the iLife or iWork suites. A “Download Free” button provides a one-tap installation of iBooks, iTunes U, Podcasts, Find My Friends, and Find My iPhone.
Apple has revamped the App Store in iOS 6, just a few months after it passed its fourth birthday. An altered design, and changes made to the application download process, means iDevice owners will be able to enjoy a much improved App Store experience once iOS 6 becomes available on September 19.
As always, we’ll keep you posted.
