I'm trying to figure out the use cases for the different sizes of segmented controls, specifically the 2 segmented one. The app store has a longer version (located below the Nav bar), while the iTunes store has a smaller, more compact one (located in the Nav bar).

Anyone know why Apple has done this?

Different design teams.

The app store bar is not in the nav bar has a longer title, so I assume it did not fit.

The iTunes one, probably a stronger focus on the content to have those pixels available for selling.
