Developers Can Now Post Up To 10 Screenshots On The App Store

Apple has upped the limit of screenshots that developers can post on the App Store. The news was announced on the Apple Developer News blog. In other words, developers can now post ten screenshots per device form factor. Previously, the limit was limited to five screenshots. In addition to this, it’s not just the iOS App Store that the change implies to, but tvOS App Store and watchOS App Store as well.

Here’s Apple’s announcement regarding the increased screenshot limit:

“You can now display up to 10 screenshots on your product page on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Apple TV, to show customers more of your app’s experience.”

The number of screenshots displayed in the search results is still limited to a maximum of three portrait screenshots or a single horizontal screenshot. Even though the change is pretty small, it will allow developers to show off their app’s features in a more detailed way. Moreover, same goes for customers who are willing to get a much clearer insight into the app.

It’s definitely good to see Apple considering the App Store from a developers viewpoint. Ultimately, the end user will benefit from it as well. There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details.

This is all for now, folks. What are your thoughts on Apple upping the screenshot limit on the App Store for iOS, tvOS and watchOS? Share your views with us in the comments.
