    Apple today updated its Apple Store app to version 4.4, introducing iOS 11 enhancements and a new scanner feature for quickly adding your credit card information at checkout.

    According to the release notes, the app update also allows customers to bypass pre-authorization and activate later on full price purchases of iPhones, a purchasing option that has been available for the iPhone X on the Apple Store website since November.
    The Apple Store app is Apple's iOS storefront, allowing customers to find and purchase a range of Apple products and accessories. It can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

    Just saw this and wondered if anyone would pick up on such a big change being buried in app release notes.

    This is huge, easily worthy of the front page!

    I'll never understand what qualifies for front-page news...

    Seems to be fitting with the iOS Blog Discussion section where this was posted.

    I guess they have to prioritise, but I'll never understand how some of Apple's own apps aren't updated sooner.

    If they offer this feature next September, I predict that the new Verizon iPhone is going to be in short supply. Anyone without a Verizon account will be able to get the SIM-free model on day 1 directly from Apple.

    iPhone X is in plentiful supply! I looked at 7:00pm and the Chicago area stores had the SIM-Free available for pickup.

    That’s why they wait a month before making the SIM-Free model available.

    If I order for a pickup in US, they ask for a government issued ID. Can that be an Indian ID? Or it has to be issued by the US government?

    Do they also add ApplePay as a payment option?

    My guess is that most people carry a driver’s license issued by one of the 50 states, or the District of Columbia, as photo identification.

    If you reside in territory governed by an Indian tribal authority, I don’t see why they would not accept ID issued by that tribal authority.

    I assume they would accept a driver’s license issued by Puert Rico, Guam or the U.S. Virgin Islands as well.

    Your passport will be your valid form of ID.
