How to Download Apps to My New iPhone

New iPhone owners will notice that their device only comes with a few apps pre-installed. In order to expand the functionality of your new iPhone, you need to download third-party apps through the iOS App Store. The iOS App Store features both free and paid apps, and you can download them directly on your device without having to connect your phone to a computer and sync with iTunes.
