Apple favors own apps in App Store searches, investigation reveals

An investigation by the New York Times has revealed that tech giant Apple tends to favor its own apps as compared to those created by third parties, in searches made in the App Store. The investigation also revealed that the company’s own apps ranked on number one for nearly 700 different search terms in the App Store.
