When it comes to the App Store, Apple’s goal is to make finding apps as quick and painless as possible, and that has led it to tremendous success. With that in mind, the company always seems to have some tweaks up its sleeve to make the process of finding apps a little easier.
Apple is rolling out a new update for the App Store that’ll help you narrow down the types of apps you want to find with handy suggestions based on the term you originally entered.
The App Store’s New Suggestions
The new search suggestion feature seems quite useful. When you type in a search term, the top of the screen will show you many other search terms related to the one you started with.

For example, if you type “Food” into the App Store’s search bar, the suggestions will include terms like “games,” “delivery,” “recipes,” “tracker,” and so on. Basically, it’s designed to take an extensive search term and help you drill it down to what you’re looking for.
Where Is This Available?
Apple is currently rolling the new search suggestions out in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. It appears to be a server-side update, as I could see it on my iPhone without downloading any software updates.
