New: iPad Support for Keyword Ranks, Suggestions, Research, and Competitor Tracking

Did you know that Apple ranks apps in search results differently when searching from an iPad vs. an iPhone? That’s because not all apps are available across both devices, and also because apps that work great on the iPad may not be ideal on the iPhone.

When optimizing a universal app or iPad-only app, it’s important to look at data that’s coming right from the iPad App Store, which you can now do with the ASO tools you’re already used to thanks to our new complete support for the iPad App Store.

The keywords suggestion algorithm has been updated to handle devices, giving you relevant keywords you can use for your ASO for the iPhone and iPad separately.
