Apple has unveiled its 2017 charts and trends, celebrating the most popular apps, music, movies, TV shows, books and podcasts across the App Store, Apple Music, iTunes, iBooks and Apple Podcasts.

On iPad and its larger screen it is perhaps no surprise that a creative app, illustration app Procreate, was the year's top seller.

Apple has also released the usual top charts listings for free and paid apps and games. In line with their observation, even on Google, the most popular app in 2016 and 2017, has been a photo editing app, focused on selfies.

The Enlight Videoleap app, which is available for free download on the App Store, is a one-stop video editor that allows you to produce "artistic Hollywood-level films" in addition to some simple video memories.

Boom founder and CEO Blake Scholl said his company has been "working with Japan Airlines behind the scenes" for more than a year. No commercial supersonic transport has been in use since both Air France and British Airways retired the Concorde in 2003.

Apple's iPhone app of the year is Calm, a health-and-fitness app that provides soundtracks and guides for meditation, including routines to help you sleep.

Fresh Air continues to dominate the iTunes' podcast chart, but 2017 has also seen a rise in daily news podcasts, with podcasts like The New York Times's The Daily and Up First from NPR jumping into the most downloaded list. This features the most interesting and important apps, games and trends in app culture. This includes different categories such as casual games, general apps, augmented reality and more. Disney's Moana was the most-watched movie, with "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and "Wonder Woman" coming in as runners-up.

In music, two names reign supreme with Drake's More Life and Ed Sheeran's Shape of You taking the awards for top album and top song, respectively. Apple said Taylor Swift's new album Reputation has already reached No. 3 on the 2017 USA top album chart, an impressive feat considering it was just released on November 10. Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Big Bang Theory and Rick and Morty topped the iTunes TV charts this year.
