With Apple recently releasing its updated Apple TV, it’s clear the company sees the technology as its next app platform. In response to this, App Annie, a provider of app analytics and app market data, has released a series of stats on tvOS.
Some of these findings include:
– Of the top 100 most downloaded free apps on tvOS, 80 per cent fall into five categories
– This level of consolidation is higher than when Apple Watch launched (57 per cent)
– One third of the top 100 Apple TV apps are Gaming apps
– 60 per cent of the top 100 free tvOS apps are from the Entertainment and Games categories against 69 per cent for the iPad (in the UK)
