Apple has released its list of the most downloaded apps. Beating two apps for the number one spot, YouTube overthrew Snapchat and Bitmoji for the spot.

Last year, YouTube was number three on the list. Bitmoji was number one, with Snapchat in the second position. This year Snapchat dropped to number three, with Instagram moving up to number two. Bitmoji also went down to the sixth position.

Here is the top 20 free most downloaded iOS apps in

  1. YouTube
  2. Instagram
  3. Snapchat
  4. Messenger
  5. Facebook
  6. Bitmoji
  7. Netflix
  8. Google Maps
  9. Gmail
  10. Spotify Music
  11. Amazon
  12. Uber

  14. Pandora
  15. Wish
  16. TikTok
  17. Cash App
  18. Google Photos

Obviously, most of the apps on the released list aren’t a surprise. Considering YouTube at first place, it could mean YouTube becoming a force to reckon with, though it isn’t a new app by any means. Social media companies may need to compete with. An article from Mashable earlier this year may attest to this. The article (actually a poll) found that YouTube is the most used app among teens.

Free apps TikTok and Cash App made their debut on the list this year. TikTok is a music video app and Cash App is a P2P payments medium.

Apple also released a separate list for games. Check it out.
