There are apps available right now for people who want to shop using the Apple Watch, as one tech reviewer found out as he accidently purchased an Xbox One while filming an Apple Watch demo. Aside from Amazon, Target is yet another major retailer that lets people purchase stuff using their smartwatch. A new report claims that Apple’s first smartwatch may soon allow you to purchase products from the Apple Store.
According to 9to5mac’s sources Apple is putting the final touches on a version of its Apple Store app for its first smartwatch, it’s expected to arrive “soon” through an update for the Apple Store app for iPhone and iPad.
It makes perfect sense for Apple to do this. The app will provide Apple Watch users with a simple way to purchase more products from the company, it’s actually hard to find a reason why Apple shouldn’t do this.
According to the report the app will not only let people purchase stuff but they will also be able to receive their Apple Store-related notifications right on their wrist.
Apparently the company is going to make its store employees push Apple Store app installations on the Apple Watch once the smartwatch goes on sale in its stores this summer, until that happens employees will be encouraged to show off the application on demo units of the Apple Watch.
