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.

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.
