After Google launched a list of its most popular apps, movies and music on Play Store, Apple has announced a list of its own. While you're at it, we also have our lists of the best iPhone apps and the best iPhone games as well.

Rather interestingly, the game of the year choices for iPhone and iPad are not freemium titles. 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.

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. The app has a plethora of tools that provide a ground for layer-based video editing right on the iPhone.

Super Mario Run tops the most downloaded games chart, followed by 8 Ball Pool, Snake VS Block, Ballz, Word Cookies and Subway Surfers.

This year, Apple has also introduced a new year-end section for the "trends of the year". Apple features augmented reality, online realtime mobile games, environmentally-minded apps for sustainable living, and apps to help with parenting.

Tennessee Finalizes Deal With Jeremy Pruitt
With Pruitt gone, one possible replacement would be Tosh Lupoi who is in his third year as Alabama's outside linebackers coach. Under Pruitt, Alabama ranked No. 1 nationally in scoring defense, No. 1 in yards per play and No. 2 in total defense in 2017.

To begin with, on Apple Music, Drake topped album of the year with More Life, while Ed Sheeran's Shape of You got top song honors.

Taylor Swift's album "reputation" has already shot up to number three on the 2017 USA top album charts, despite having only been available for a short period of time.

The top movie of the year was "Moana", followed by "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and "Wonder Woman". Game of Thrones unsurprisingly dominated in the TV realm, with NPR's Fresh Air topping podcast charts.

Computer science was a huge area of interest in 2017, with the top three courses on iTunes U focusing on learning to code and developing apps with Swift.
