The Apple App Store first launched way back in 2008 and has since become one of the biggest in the world. It's jam-packed full of innovative designs and creativity, but in a bid to clear up the market, some of your favourite apps may be at risk. 

Apple has decided to start removing apps that haven't been updated in over two years as part of its App Store Improvements. And while the initiative may clean up the store, people are already pointing out how it could result in a number of indie developers having their apps removed. If you're looking to design your very own app, then make sure you check out our guide on mobile app design.
