In a recent publication, Apple Insider has pointed out that in order to make things easier for business, Apple has already begun the process of launching a completely overhauled online store. The source was notified on Wednesday through an alert banner found on the top of Apple online stores geared for kindergarten through 12th grade institutions which says “the new Apple Store.”
According to the source:
“Apple is launching a new online store, which is your tool to shop and place orders with Apple,” the note reads. “Proposal creation, order status, and a dramatically simplified user interface will make it easier to do business with Apple — all in a secure and reliable environment.”
“Your current Apple ID and password will continue to work,” it states. “In the coming weeks, you will receive more information about the store’s features, benefits, and launch date.”
For now, it appears that any forthcoming changes will just be related to the company’s specialty stores designed for education institutions.
This could well be a sign that Apple is planning to overhaul its general consumer storefront as well in the near future. What do you think?
