They need to re-do the whole website too. I still have not figured out how to get to the AirTags besides scrolling all the way down on the Home Screen and then looking for the accessories link somewhere in a wall of text. It’s a pain to switch / navigate between products and accessories if you are so used to any other online store, ever

Looks good. Now make it available for macOS users, make it possible to use the education store in the app and fix all weird bugs and inconsistencies.
