I am sure the Wall Street Journal did a rigorous test, but I’m not convinced Apple’s top search ranking for its own apps is totally unfair. Maybe it’s a circular argument that the apps Apple builds in on all its devices are “popular,” so therefore they should rank highly in search, but people only go searching for new ones if the stock apps are bad, and they are not. Personally, I use Apple’s apps whenever possible, because I trust them more.
What do you think: Is Apple unfairly promoting its first-party apps over those of competitors? Hit reply to let me know your thoughts.
