  1. Apple will give preference to Click Through Rate CTR as a ranking factor. Google not give importance to CTR as per now.
  2. Relevant keyword and page written text also meager factor.
  3. Apple also give preference to number of backlinks and quality backlinks.
  4. Forth is interesting, Apple give preference to searching user location. Now in time Mobile user are high so it will be meager impact on SEO.
  5. Last but not least, Apple give preference to Web page design that’s mean it will be consider page design, elements, style etc. also are ranking factor.
