Apple has just released a significant update to their Apple Store iOS app, adding push notifications to let users know when they are eligible for a discount iPhone upgrade, as well as push notifications for order shipment and delivery. The notifications are a nice unexpected touch that should bring some nice user functionality for the app.
From the release notes:
What’s New in Version 2.6
– Choose to receive notifications that let you know exactly when you’re eligible for upgrade pricing on a new iPhone. And since all you need to complete the order is your Apple ID and password, buying your new iPhone is fast and easy (US only).
– Stay on top of your delivery with notifications. We’ll let you know when your order ships, keep you informed of any updates, and notify you when it’s delivered.
The app is available now, as always, as a free download from the App Store.
