Apple has updated the Apple Store app to bring EasyPay support to Canada. Essentially this feature allows users to walk into an Apple retail store, scan an accessory barcode, purchase it, and walk right out of the store:
What’s New in Version 2.4
- Ask Siri to help you find prices and shop for Apple products (Siri-enabled device required).
- Purchase accessories in store quickly with the new EasyPay feature, now available in Canada, France, Italy, Switzerland and Germany. Just scan the barcode and complete your transaction straight from the app. Works with iPhone 4 or later and iPod touch (5th generation).
- Support for additional payment options in China.
The Apple Store iOS app added support for Canada back in November of 2011. That update at the time brought EasyPay for the USA, but not us.
Speaking of the US, their Apple Store update today includes Passbook support for gift cards. Looks like we can look forward to these features coming to Canada in… a year or two?!
