Yesterday, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) released version 2.5 of its Apple Store app. If you want to learn more about this app, you can visit the official page here.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is actually the smart money's second favorite publicly traded company but hedge funds have started dumping Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) in favor of a surprising financial stock (see which stock hedge funds are buying like crazy).
Here is a rundown from the official page that explains what the new version has to offer:
“New delivery options make it even more convenient to get your Apple products. Choose different shipping options for different items in an order.” “An even easier way to see if the product you want is available for pickup at your favorite Apple Retail Store (U.S. only).”
Let’s take a closer look at both of these changes.
First and foremost, you have the ability to choose different shipping options for the items within your order. For instance, you may want to have one item shipped to your home and another shipped to your local Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) store. Since each item is listed separately on the checkout page, you can easily make this decision based on your personal requirements.
Along with this, you can click on the “check availability list” after selecting an item to see if the item can be shipped to a local store.
What about support for the iPad? Right now, the app is not available on the company’s popular tablet. Instead, the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Store app is only available on the iPhone and iPod Touch.
It is safe to say that the company is aware that users are interested in having this app on their iPad. For this reason, we should expect to see it at some point in the near future.
This update is sure to make things easier on those who use the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Store app to make online purchases. With new shipping options and an “easier way to see if the product you want is available,” the buying experience will be more enjoyable than ever before.
