Apple Store app update brings support for Apple Pay purchases

October 20, 2014

Hot on the heels of Apple Pay’s introduction in iOS 8.1, the Apple Store app has been updated to support the new mobile payment system.

That’s the single new feature in version 3.1 of the app, but it’s definitely a welcomed one.

Users of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be able to make purchases at their local Apple Store with their phones. Along with those two handsets, in-app purchases at any time can also be made with an iPad mini 3 or iPad Air 2.

A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, Apple Store can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.

If you’re interested, you can also take a look at our updated list of merchants and apps that accept Apple Pay. Currently, the new mobile payment system will be available at 220,000 retail locations in the United States.
