Apple has recognized Disney+ as the Apple TV app of 2020. This comes after the recent announcement by Disney that the streaming service had reached 73.7 million subscribers since launching in November 2019.
Disney+ was also the third most downloaded iPhone free app globally. This distinction came after Zoom and TikTok took first and second place. For iPads, Disney+ was the second most downloaded free app after Zoom. According to Apple, Disney+ “offered a sense of unlimited possibility that many craved.”
Over on the Android system, Disney+ was voted as the number 1 app of 2020 by Google Play users.
