Apple TV App Store Top Charts algorithm now hides apps that you already have installed

Apple has quietly rolled out a change to the Apple TV App Store on tvOS in the last few days, which affects how apps are listed in the Top Charts. For the Top Charts (Top Paid, Top Free, Top Grossing), the Apple TV App Store will now hide listings for apps that the user has already downloaded, so the charts update dynamically per user. This means users can only browse for apps they don’t already own, removing some clutter and allowing less popular apps more opportunity to be seen. This behavior is novel and isn’t currently replicated by the iPhone and iPad App Stores.

To try this out for yourself, open the Apple TV App Store and download the #1 Top Free app. After force-quitting and re-opening the App Store (by swiping it away in the multitasking tray), the app will disappear from the charts. What was previously listed at #2 will now take the top spot (via Equinux).

Opinion: Could Apple really be planning a move to a 3-year cycle on major iPhone refreshes?

That Nikkei report claiming that Apple is moving to a three-year cycle on major iPhone refreshes would be huge news if true.

Apple currently has a very well-established ‘tick-tock’ cycle where we see a new form-factor every two years, and new features within the same casing on alternate years. That’s a very efficient approach: Apple generates new demand each year without having the pressure to design a whole new model each time.

Some will upgrade every single year; others will be more influenced by design, and buy in ‘tick’ years; others will be more concerned about features, and will buy in ‘tock’ years. The result is that every year, you have a bunch of customers eager to buy.

A switch to a three-year cycle would seem a dangerous one – so could it really be true, or is something else going on … ?

Nikkei reports Apple moving to 3-year major iPhone refresh cycle

Japanese newspaper Nikkei is claiming that Apple is moving from a tick-tock cycle with a major iPhone refresh every two years to a three-year cycle.

Apple will likely take three years between full-model changes of its iPhone devices, a year longer than the current cycle. In a typical two-year term, fall 2016 was supposed to see a major upgrade. But the changes on the model to be launched this autumn will be minor, such as improved camera quality. 

The paper says that the change is driven by two factors …

Poll: With new tech for both all-metal and all-glass designs, which should Apple use for 2017 iPhone?

A KGI report last month suggested that Apple could be headed back to an all-glass iPhone after a succession of metal-bodied models. Different people will have different aesthetic preferences, but there have also so far been practical considerations at play.

Glass backs allow for a clean design, but are vulnerable to smashing if dropped. Metal is more robust, but requires antenna cutouts which are not to everyone’s tastes.

However, new tech could overcome both issues, so we thought it would be interesting to find out which way you’d like Apple to go if the drawbacks of each could be eliminated from the equation …

French, Italian and Spanish iPhone owners can now Trade Up With Installments – but probably shouldn’t

setteB.IT noticed that French, Italian and Spanish iPhone owners can now take advantage of Apple’s Trade Up With Installments plan, where you use your existing phone as a down payment on a new one, paying off the balance in installments over two years. It’s effectively the iPhone Upgrade Program available in the U.S., but with lower monthly payments in exchange for handing over your old phone.
