Apple Store update for iOS
Apple is updating its Apple Store app for iOS, doing its best to “gently” make you spend the maximum amount possible this holiday season. As reported by 9to5Mac, Apple Store adds Siri support, where it’s nice to be able to quickly look up the price of a new MacBook Pro.
The implementation has however shown a few hiccups. You can’t use Siri to look for accessories, and it can’t tell you what time your local Apple Store opens and closes. Moreover, while generic price questions are no problem, specific questions like “How much is a 32GB iPad Mini?” kick you out to web search.
Yet, the update lets you buy an Apple gift card for the special someone on your list. These cards are only available in the US for now, and can be accessed with Apple’s Passbook app. Version 2.4 of Apple Store is now available from the App Store.
