Only a few days before Apple’s big media event, where the company is expected to launch the next-generation iPhone and possibly iPad Air, as well as unveil the purported iWatch, the official retail app has received a major update with a redesigned user interface, better navigation, and cross-platform shopping. Plus, the iPhone app is now universal. Interestingly, the Apple Store app for iPad is still available and active in the App Store.
Until yesterday, there were separate Apple Store apps for the iPhone and iPad. The two looked alike for the most part with minor differences based on layout for the varying screen size. Today, you can download the app on either iPad or iPhone and updates will trigger on both devices.
