And lastly, computer science was a huge area of interest in 2017, with the top three courses on iTunes U focusing on learning to code and developing apps with Swift.

It's also hardly shocking to see crowd pleasers and essentials like Bitmoji, Snapchat, YouTube, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Google Maps or Netflix among the iOS App Store's most popular 2017 apps. Pandora, a music streaming service, also dashed out of the top ten, but was able to get a place among the top fifteen apps.

Drake topped the album of the year category on Apple Music with "More Life, ' while Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" is the top song".

Rather interestingly, the game of the year choices for iPhone and iPad are not freemium titles. The top TV show download went to Game of Thrones and Walking Dead.

The top movie of the year was "Moana", followed by "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and "Wonder Woman." iTunes is leading the charge toward 4K HDR content, with most of the top charting movies already available in 4K HDR as well as classics and holiday favorites like the Harry Potter series, "Home Alone", "Office Christmas Party" and "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas".
