The coverage for Apple’s 2017 WWDC keynote continues, as the Cupertino-based tech giant has also unveiled an all-new and beautifully redesigned App Store that is packed with original stories and editorial, updated daily in a new Today tab, as well as new Games and Apps tabs.

“Together with our incredible developer community, we’ve made the App Store the best app platform in the world, and more than 500 million unique customers visit it every week,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Now, we are taking everything we’ve learned from the App Store over the past nine years and putting it into a stunning new design. Every element of the new App Store is richer, more beautiful and more engaging.”

Starting with the Today tab, a daily destination for all about games, apps and app culture — it will feature exclusive premieres, new releases and a fresh look at all-time favorites, as well as recommended tips and how-to guides to help customers use apps in innovative ways.

Games, the most popular category on the App Store, will now feature recommendations of new releases and updates, compelling videos, top charts just for games and hand-picked collections, as well as easier navigation. Apps will also have its own tab, bringing customers everything they use, need and enjoy.

Additionally, the Updates tab will allow customers to quickly see what has changed in their favorite apps and games with the latest update, and Search has been enhanced to include the editorial content found in Today, Games and Apps.

Now, here’s the list of powerful new features coming to iOS 11.
