    In what is undoubtedly the first of many Apple iOS apps to receive updates for iOS 7 today, the company Apple Store app [Direct Link] has been updated with iOS 7 compatibility, a new icon, and a "refined user interface" more in line with the iOS 7 design aesthetic.

    The updated app appears to carry identical functionality to the previous version, although the company has been reported to be planning to push out a new tool within the app next week that will allow customers to check stock levels of the new iPhone models at their local Apple retail stores.

    Update: AirPort Utility [Direct Link] has also been updated with the new iOS 7 look.

    AirPort Utility was also updated. And iBooks, although iBooks still has the skeuomorphism?

    I got an iBooks update today, but they didn't update the design for iOS 7. Didn't even touch the icon. Weird!

    Wondering how long this will take? Looking forward to having all my icons have similar design aesthetics.....

    One of my pet peeves with Android - especially Samsung. Need to find a nice, robust icon set.

    I thought the same thing...

    ----------

    I think they probably feel the iPad is good for viewing the full Apple website...but who knows.

    airport utility updated! can't get the apple store app to update though

    ----------

    agreed, but they should just make it universal. I like the iPhone app experience.

    After they made the changes to store.apple.com to be more "touch friendly," I think Apple wants user to use the site instead of the Apple Store app. I wouldn't count on it being on the iPad ever at this rate.

    And the answer is still "no".
    For the Apple Store app to not accept Apple gift cards is completely retarded.
    :mad:

    I don't care for the Airport Utility's icon but the Apple store icon is a welcomed update.

    probably the reason but what kind of ecosystem would the ipad offer if everyone thought like that?

    amazon does it, imdb does etc etc

    airbnb is another one which seems content to only offer an iphone version.
