Apple has unveiled its top iOS apps of 2013, and its no surprise to see Candy Crush Saga was the most downloaded free app on both iPhone and iPad this year.

The insanely popular match ‘em up wasn’t the only winner this year. Minecraft – Pocket Edition was the most downloaded paid for app on iPhone and iPad.

As well as free and paid for apps, Apple also unveiled the top ten grossing iOS apps of the year – those with in-app purchases (IAPs) that continue to make money after they’ve been downloaded.

Mostly games, these apps usually work on a ‘freemium’ basis, meaning they’re free to download and then users can choose to buy extra content to help them advance quicker throughout the game.

Candy Crush Saga also topped this chart for both iPhone and iPad, with Clash of Clans coming in a close second on both charts.
