Most popular iPhone apps of 2018
Apple released most downloaded apps of 2018 and YouTube took the number one spot, beating out Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat for the honor.
YouTube held the 3 position spot last year, when Bitmoji and Snapchat came in at 1 and 2 positions respectively. This year, Snapchat dropped to third place and Bitmoji down to sixth, with Instagram climbing to the 2 position.
These are the top 20 free apps of the year, according to Apple
- Google Maps
- Spotify Music
- WhatsApp Messenger
- Cash App
- Google Photos
- Google Chrome
While there aren’t many surprises on that list, it’s notable that YouTube has now edged out Instagram and Snapchat. Though not a new app by any means, YouTube is increasingly becoming the app social media companies need to compete with. Earlier this year, a Pew poll found that YouTube is the most-used app among teens.
