Apple has recently released an update to its Apple Store app, bumping it up to version 5.19. The app is designed to provide customers with a personalized shopping experience right at their fingertips.
Customers can now shop from the comfort of their own homes, upgrade their iPhones to the latest model, explore accessories that are compatible with their devices, keep track of their orders in real time, and even sign up for hands-on sessions at Apple stores. Additionally, the app offers personalized recommendations based on the Apple products customers already own, and supports Apple Pay transactions and App Clips at retail locations.
Earlier updates to the app introduced a “save items” option that allows users to easily share the products they wish to buy with a Specialist at an Apple retail store, as well as audio descriptions of products. Now, with the latest update, the Apple Store app provides more detailed information on the locations of Apple retail stores and their surrounding areas. In addition, users can now easily share their saved items lists with friends and family, and continue shopping for saved items in more places throughout the app.
Moreover, reports suggest that the Apple Store app may soon incorporate an augmented reality (AR) feature that would allow users to point their iPhones at an Apple product and instantly receive more information about pricing and specifications in an overlay on their screen. With these updates, the Apple Store app continues to evolve and provide customers with an enhanced shopping experience.
