iOS App Store Gains New ‘Shopping’ Category

Apple will be updating the iOS App Store today to introduce a new Shopping category that will allow iOS users to better find shopping-related apps. According to TechCrunch the Shopping category will be available to users worldwide and will encompass apps that offer shopping, auctions, price comparisons, coupons, product reviews, and more, transitioning them from the existing Lifestyle category to the new less noisy category.

Apple plans to use the Shopping category to highlight apps that support Apple Pay, its mobile payments service. Many apps now include Apple Pay integration, letting users pay for merchandise with a finger on the Touch ID fingerprint button on supported devices.

The new App Store category will include launch with several different collections of shopping apps, including a „Save While You Shop“ category that will be offering exclusive discounts from a variety of merchants like Everlane, Zappos, Groupon, and Nordstrom. Nordstrom, for example, will offer a free gift when $100 or more is spent in the app, while Zappos will offer free 1-day shipping.

App Store users should begin seeing the category in the App Store later today, and in the future, it’s possible Apple could expand it to the tvOS App Store as well. The tvOS App Store currently only supports two categories, Games and Entertainment, but shopping on the big screen has been a feature that’s been touted by Apple.

Happy May! Heading into the first of the month, deals on Macs continue to be good, while deals on iPads are less impressive. It’s a good time to buy a Retina MacBook Pro or a MacBook Air (either one of the new models or the older 2014 models – discounts on both are solid), but if you’re looking for an iPad and can hold out for a few weeks, you might be able to get a better price.

Retina iMac

There are no particularly good deals on the Retina iMac from third-party resellers this week, but prospective buyers can get a good deal from Apple’s online refurbished store, which has a variety of Retina iMacs available at discounted prices.
