App

Apple’s editorial team has published a list of its favorite apps that can help you learn something with an iPhone or iPad.

A whopping 20 apps are featured, from obvious choices like Duolingo that can help you pick up a new language to lesser-known picks like Blinkist that offer a shortcut to speed-reading non-fiction.

There are plenty of good utilities for self-improvement here, most of them free to try. Take a look at Apple’s full list of recommendations for inspiration. Whether you want to learn an instrument, start programming, or just keep your brain active, there’s something here for you.

Though they cover a wide range of skills, Apple’s list is far from exhaustive. Our very own “educate yourself” roundup covers even more apps that can help you learn new things.
