Last year when Apple launched iOS 11, one of the major revamps that they did was to the iOS App Store, giving it a new layout and design which was said to help improve on app discovery. However the Mac App Store did not get such treatment, and admittedly given how long it’s been that way, we reckon it’s about time that it did.


The good news for Mac users is that it looks like a change is coming, according to a post by John Gruber of Daring Fireball (via 9to5Mac). Gruber’s post was commenting on another article about some of the subtle but meaningful changes Apple made to the iOS App Store, and he remarked that these are the changes he’s looking forward to with the Mac App Store as well.

“The new iOS 11 App Store really is run like an editorial-driven publication. They write articles and features, and as Vinh rightly celebrates here, commission great custom artwork. One of the things I’m most looking forward to next month at WWDC is seeing this sort of treatment on the Mac App Store, too.”

As 9to5Mac points out, Gruber has been known to drop casual comments like that which hints at Apple’s future plans. At the same time it isn’t necessarily a very far-fetched rumor either because like we said, the changes to the iOS App Store has resulted in an increased number of downloads, something we’re sure that Apple would like to apply to macOS as well.
