Apple revealed a number of new features for its iOS App Store today, including the ability for developers to sell bundles of apps at a discount. App bundles let users buy multiple games or apps at once and are not offered by competing platforms. The App Store search feature has been expanded with suggestions for related apps, and app listings can now feature video demos of apps alongside screenshots. Editor's Choice apps will now feature a new logo to better differentiate them from the 1.2 million other apps in the store.

For developers, Apple is offering a new beta testing service based on TestFlight, which it acquired earlier this year. The service will be available to developers for free.

Apple says the upgraded App Store and TestFlight beta feature will be available later this fall when iOS 8 officially launches.
