KEY POINTS

  • Apple has announced the best iPhone apps of the year
  • The list includes games, fitness, and charity apps

Apple’s iPhones offer the best features in any smartphone. Despite the great specs and features, these devices are only as good as the apps that users decide to download and install in them.

A state-of-the-art iPhone can only do basic things unless users equip it with the best apps available on the iOS App Store.

Thankfully, Apple has announced the best iPhone apps for this year. These apps let users enjoy and maximize their iPhones in ways they like – whether they’re a mobile gamer, a business-oriented person, a social media addict, or just the average consumer.

Here’s a quick look at the best iPhone apps this 2020, according to Apple:

iPhone App of the Year: “Wakeout!”

Wakeout!” is developed by Andres Canella, an independent app developer. The app gives users “mini exercises” that will help them feel more energetic and less stressed while working or doing other things from home. The app was designed primarily for the iPad, but it has an iPhone version that’s perfect for those short breaks in between shifts.

iPhone Game of the Year: “Genshin Impact”

Genshin Impact” is a very popular game from the makers of “Honkai Impact 3,” miHoYo. The game was previously said to have the same aesthetics as “Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” but it’s actually its own game. It offers open-world travel, intense action-adventure gameplay, and very cute graphics.

App Trend of the Year: “Caribu”

Apple said “ Caribu” is created “ for connecting families to loved ones,” which is something that’s very important during the COVID-19 pandemic. The app is very kid-friendly and is actually named “Caribu: Video Calls for Kids.” It helps kids connect with their faraway parents and grandparents and lets them have a good time interacting with each other using games and other things.

App Trend of the Year: “Pokémon GO”

Niantic’s hit game is part of Apple’s “App Trend of the Year” “for reinventing the way we play.” Indeed, “Pokemon GO” had people walking outdoors in their search of virtual monsters they can fight, capture and train on their way to be “the very best like no one ever was.”

App Trend of the Year: “ShareTheMeal”

While iPhones are meant to help its users, “ShareTheMeal” is meant to help iPhone owners help others. This app lets users donate to the United Nations World Food Programme, which feeds hungry children in different places in the world.
