Apple customers who buy products through the iOS Apple Store app will find a couple of helpful updates in the latest release.
Launched yesterday, version 2.1 of the Apple Store app now lets U.S. buyers of a new iPhone choose a plan from among all three carriers--Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint.
Users can also manage their accounts directly through the app. You can now update both your billing and shipping information without leaving the app, a process that previously required you to log into the Apple Web site.
The last update to the app in November added a couple of major improvements, including the ability to pick up items ordered online at your local Apple Store and pay for items in the store via your iPhone.
