To make the classification of what its App Store users loved the most this year, Apple divided these into 4 major trends.
Moving on to the best games of the year, Splitter Critters took home the title on the iPhone, while The Witness came out on top on the iPad.
The free iPhone apps top 10 reads like a checklist of obvious downloads, with Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and Messenger all featuring, along with Bitmoji - highlighting just how popular emoji-based conversation has become.
Similarly to previous annual charts, Apple has revealed top charts for the most popular apps and games of the year too. Unsurprisingly, Super Mario Run leads Apple's list of United States best-selling mobile games after prevailing in Google's contest for the most downloaded new Android game of the year too.

Asked if that comment was related to Burfict, Brown said, "I ain't talking about nobody". "And me just playing ball, I hit him". After the game, Smith-Schuster tweeted, "I don't have any intentions to hurt anyone when I play football".
For iPad, Apple has chosen Affinity Photo, the desktop-class photo editor, and the game The Witness. Apple also noted trends in iTunes U educational content, with computer science being a huge area of interest, with a strong focus on developing apps with Swift.
Second, the App Store also saw a substantial rise in hyper-casual games.
On Apple Music, Drake's "More Life" was the top album of the year and Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" was the top song. Taylor Swift's latest album, Reputation, has already reached the third spot on the 2017 USA top album charts despite having just launched on November 10.
Disney's Moana was the most-watched movie, with "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and "Wonder Woman" coming in as runners-up. Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Big Bang Theory and Rick and Morty topped the iTunes TV charts this year.
