Drake, Moana Top Apple Charts in 2017

Apple phasing out music downloads

Affinity Photo was chosen as the best iPad app, Aurora HDR 2018 is the best Mac app and ChefsFeed is the #1 Apple TV app.

Roughly a week after Google revealed the Android Play Store's top apps of the year, Apple has done the same, showcasing which of this year's most popular apps, music, movies, podcasts, and books have topped iOS users' lists in 2017.

It's also hardly shocking to see crowd pleasers and essentials like Bitmoji, Snapchat, YouTube, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Google Maps or Netflix among the iOS App Store's most popular 2017 apps.

Here's the full list of the top 20 most downloaded apps, according to Apple.

Snapchat's 2016 crown was snatched from them, but only just, by the popular Bitmooji app, which is owned by Snap. Unsurprisingly, Super Mario Run leads Apple's list of USA best-selling mobile games after prevailing in Google's contest for the most downloaded new Android game of the year too.

Apple said its editors and curators identified four breakout trends in app culture in 2017: the introduction of augmented reality, the rise of real-time competitive gaming, apps that transform storytelling and reading and those that focus on mental health and mindfulness.

For Apple Music, the most popular album was Drake's More Life and Ed Sheeran snagged the most popular song with Shape of You.

Apple also listed the top movies in the Apple Store, with Disney's Moana ranks first followed by Wonder Woman, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in the third spot. "Game of Thrones" unsurprisingly dominated the iTunes TV charts, followed by "The Walking Dead", HBO's "Big Little Lies", NBC's "This Is Us", PBS's "Victoria" and FX's "The Americans".

Apple also has new editorial this time around; "trends of the year".
