Apple Store App for iOS Adds Saved Item Lists for Easy Sharing With Product Specialists

The Apple Store app for iOS was updated today with a new feature that lets you easily save items to lists, share them with a specialist online or during a store visit, and then get a recap of your visit to help you later purchase your items.

apple store app saved items
After you've saved items to a list, they can be found in a new Saved Items section on your account page accessible via your profile picture at the top right of the app interface, and once you've met with a specialist about a list, you'll be able to see notes and suggestions on it in a new Session Recaps section.

Today's update also brings Audio Descriptions to product videos to let you hear details about the products if you are unable to watch the videos on your screen.

The ‌Apple Store‌ app is a free download from the App Store.

I wish they would add this back to the App Store. I used the wish list feature all the time for apps. It was seamless and much better than sharing to notes or using a third party app.

I have noticed in recent years that the sales people in store (not necessarily the people that diagnose and fix phones) know way less than I do about Apple hardware and software and services. I am not a dev or tech person but just a "power user." Do other people notice the same thing or are the people I encountered exceptions?

This would also be quite helpful for people who have friends and relatives who don't really know how to shop for tech stuff. You could build a list for them and send them off to the Apple store without worrying that they'll come back with an iPod and start hounding you about why they can't make phone calls.

Also, and kind of randomly, does anyone else feel totally weird when buying something from a physical Apple store with the app, paying for it, and just ... walking out? Without ever even talking to anyone (the way I prefer to carry out all of my social interactions!)?

I get all twitchy between my shoulder blades every time, feeling like they're all staring daggers at me and are going to tackle me as I try to walk out the door.

This will be handy but during a visit, Apple stores are way too crowded.

I'm trying to understand how the saved lists work.

1. You add items to list you're interested in.
2. You go to Apple Store and discuss items in list with employee.
3. Employee adds notes/suggestions that you can look at later?
4. You view notes/suggestions later when ready to buy?

I can't really see myself using this feature unless I've misunderstood it. I think I'd probably be more interested in buying the item at the store instead of waiting--or postponing my trip until I'm ready to spend the money.
