App Store developers can now show as many as 10 screenshots on their app listing

Developers have been given a little more real estate to promote their apps in the Apple App Store. Listings in the App Store for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Apple Watch can now include as many as ten screenshots per device. With that in mind, altogether developers can post as many as 40 screenshots. Prior to the change, announced today, developers were limited to five screenshots per device, for a total of 20.

By doubling the number, developers will be able to show off more key features of an app, and display more tiers and characters of a game. Besides the ten screenshots, 30-second video previews are still permitted; the maximum number of 30-second video previews remains unchanged at three.

Apple has alerted developers to make sure that the first three images in an app's gallery of screenshots show off the "essence" of the app or game. That's because search results show the first three images from the gallery when no video clip is available.

How long until Google raises their 8 pic limit on Play Store? Apple, like always, leading the way with innovation and stirring excitement for the brand

Lol innovation? Did that word get redefined this year to mean something different?

Rouyal you just showed the world you don't know your head from your butt. Or you like to once again show the world that you are a troll. Because Google's play store pic limit is well beyond 10 pics. But clearly you don't develop apps. You could have gone to the Play store and looked at a few apps to see that yourself, even if you don't develop. But I guess you want to be ignorant and revel that to the world.

He doesn't know there is real tech outside of the Apple walls. Leave him be in his fantasy world.

"Let’s play Jeopardy. Answer: This company was recognized as most innovative in 2018." Yup voted most innovative by a company who anyone can pay to write anything you like. You can even write the article yourself, pay them a paltry fee and it will be published. Very trustworthy i'm sure. Apple has been lacking innovation since Steve Jobs died and he himself was just a crook who was happy to steal from anyone.
