Apple has upgraded its app store to version 5.1 with a revamped search interface and voice support which, much like the iTunes Store, will now emphasize the trending searches.
The upgrade will allow consumers to tap the icon for microphone along the search bar to say aloud their search data rather than typing it. The page for search results has been renovated as well, sporting a new card-supported interface that would ease sorting via the results, the media claimed this week.
“Search has been upgrade with an improved design. And it is now fueled with speech recognition tech for enhanced search results. With a new look and the inclusion of speech recognition tech, it has never been simpler to find sessions, stores, products, and more,” claimed Apple, defining its new look for app search.
In addition to this, Apple has also made upgrades to its WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) app for iOS, committing performance improvements and bug fixes.
“This update comprises improvements and bug fixes in various areas, comprising stability, accessibility, and video downloads. Apart from this, videos can be seen by platform and collection on tvOS,” Apple claimed in its update notes. The Apple Store and WWDC applications are accessible on the App Store for free for iOS consumers.
On a related note, it seems like Apple macOS machines cannot get a break. Weeks earlier we had reports discussing about consumers facing problems with the MacBook keyboard. This news was followed by the “thermal throttling” issue with MacBook Pro devices operating on Core i9 chipset. Now, it seems like some of the iMac machines are going via “kernel panics.” As per some users, these “kernel panics” happen 2 times each day in some iMac Pro machines, which again is the firm’s most powerful device till date.
