'Apple Store' App Updated for iPhone 5

Apple today updated its Apple Store app for iOS [App Store], adding support for the larger screen of the iPhone 5.


Compatibility with the larger 4-inch screen of the iPhone 5 also means that the app will be optimized for the fifth-generation iPod touch when it becomes available. Apple is preparing to ship the first orders of the device, with the actual availability date being rumored for October 9.

About time. If it took Apple this long for their own store app, how long will it take the hundreds of thousands of other apps to update.

I will chime in there.

I had my credit card expired two weeks back and my AppleID through which I buy apps was associated with this card. Given I was lazy and didn't care about the updates as I am extremely busy these ays — I didn't update my bank info.

After 2 weeks, I had 41 updates for my iPhone 4S and 34 out of them — 'included support for iPhone 5'.

I am just going to say that Apple did delay this although they should've not. But you must understand that this is not a very important app; pretty important for their business but people are only recently receiving their iPhone 5 devices. Had it been the case that the app didn't support some kind of device before the iPhone 5 launch, this would have been atrocious.

Just my 2 cents.

No use of Passbook? Low-hanging fruit there.

How would Passbook improve it?
