Apple today updated its Apple Store app with a new "For You" tab that offers access to order status, devices, accessory recommendations, services, reservations, and product tips, all in one simple to access place.

There's also a feature that's designed to allow you to compare a new iPhone you're considering purchasing with your existing iPhone so you can see the difference at a glance.

The updated Apple Store app, which lets Apple customers make purchases, view orders, find accessories, and more, can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

I’d love For You tab for AppStore as well. Show me what’s my order, my order history. Suggests apps to me. What apps I havent updated and should update etc.

Where is the comparison feature? I updated the app and can’t find it anywhere. All I can find is comparing existing models for sale, not anywhere to compare against my currently owned model.

edit: found it. Wasn’t obvious at all. Shop > iPhone > select a top tile. It doesn’t seem to work if you scroll down and pick a specific model.

....I can't find this??

If I go to 'Shop' along the bottom, the first big banner is for the iPhone SE. Below that, its for the iPad Pro and then below that, its the 'Featured' section??

And, scrolling further down and selecting 'iPhone' just takes you to a second page with yet another iPhone SE banner, iPhone 11 Pro banner, iPhone 11 banner etc all of which have no comparison feature...?!

I can’t find the comparisons either. The categories on For You I see:

What’s happening (shows last order details)
My Devices (with Device Details and Shop for Accessories and More)
Tips for Get the most out of iPad
You Might Like
Recommended For Your Devices (which show products not related to my devices)

There are product comparisons in the Shop tab, but they’ve always been there. Selecting a comparison will take the user to apple.com.
