Apple Store App for iOS Updated
By on March 1st, 2012

Today, Apple has updated its Apple Store app [App Store] for iOS to version 2.1. This new update adds several new features and makes the app available in Netherlands for the first time to support the Amsterdam store opening this week.

The most interesting addition brought via the update is the new “Account” section where users can update their billing information and addresses as well as shipping addresses right from the app. Before this update, users had to log into their accounts through the Apple website in order to update payment methods.

What’s New in Version 2.1

- Choose iPhone plans from all three U.S. carriers — AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint (U.S. Only)
- Make your shopping experience even more convenient with new account management editing and billing options.
- The Apple Store app is now available in the Netherlands.
- Requires iOS 4.3.3 or higher.

This is interesting because the previous update introduced “EasyPay”, which allows users of the app to scan product barcodes in-store, read reviews on their iPhone and then charge the items directly to the credit card associated with their iTunes account. I guess this is even more evidence that Apple is testing the waters with mobile payments.
