Apple today updated its Apple Support app to version 4.1, introducing new language and Accessibility improvements to make the app more available to everyone, along with a new feature to make it easier to check in for appointments.
Apple has also expanded the number of locations that allow the Apple Support app to add a pass to the Wallet app when a Genius Bar appointment is scheduled at an Apple Store for quicker, simpler check-ins when service is needed.
It's now easier to find advisors that speak your preferred language in regions with multiple languages, and there are Accessibility improvements for VoiceOver, including search navigation and labels.
Apple's full release notes for the update are below:
- Add a pass to Wallet for easy check-in at more Genius Bar locations
- Easier to find Advisors in your preferred language in regions with multiple languages
- Accessibility improvements for VoiceOver, including Search navigation, labels, and more
- Performance enhancements and bug fixes
The Apple Support app can be downloaded from the App Store for free, and it's an ideal app to have installed for anyone who needs assistance with an Apple device, service, or app. [Direct Link]

In that case, MR editors have a pretty darn impressive sense of humor ?
In the past, every time I’ve bought something in-store, using Apple Pay, and then had to enter my name and email address into their hand-held terminal (to get the email receipt among other things - and it was generally easier to type it myself rather than spell everything for them), I’ve been suggesting to them that they should have a screen in the Apple Store app that a customer could quickly bring up that had a QR code giving their name and email address and such (or, more likely, a hashed code that temporarily identifies your phone and account to their servers, so it can’t be misused by others), so that I could pull up the QR code and they could just scan it to complete the transaction - seemed weird to use Apple Pay and have it be so fast and direct, and then have to type things.
