App Shack functions as an internal App Store, much like Switchboard. App Shack was introduced in the iOS 13.0 InternalUI build and is believed to be an alternative to Switchboard, possibly serving as an eventual replacement. App Shack requires an AppleConnect account to use. The icon contains a bungalow overlaid onto an orange background. Inside App Shack, there are a variety of applications, some of which can also be downloaded from Switchboard. Some of these apps include ARMaps, JarvisDemo, Livability, and Siri Beta, along with many other apps. App Shack also includes a web component, which doesn't filter apps based on an employee's AppleConnect permissions, allowing them to download apps that wouldn't normally be available to them through the App Shack app with Safari. This web component is located at appshack.swe.apple.com, but can only be accessed if employees are connected to an internal network, are allowed access to the site itself, and have signed in with AppleConnect. The apps available within App Shack app vary from employee to employee depending upon one's AppleConnect permissions.
