After including iWork in the build-to-order system over at Apple.com, the Cupertino, California-based computer giant has updated its Apple Store application for iOS devices to include the same option for shoppers on-the-go.
As reported earlier this week, Apple not only allows customers to select different types of configurations when purchasing a Macintosh model (i.e. more memory, storage, or a faster processor), the company now also offers the option to have software pre-installed so that customers can start up work / have fun out-of-the-box.
iLife had already been an option, but iWork is a recent addition. Buyers of a new MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, or a Mac Pro can now opt to have Pages, Keynote, and / or Numbers pre-installed on their newly-purchased Mac before shipping.
The changelog for Apple Store 2.3 iOS specifically states, “[you] now get the option to have Pages, Keynote and Numbers pre-installed on any MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac or Mac Pro.”
In addition to this new option, Apple has also included some performance enhancements “to make it easier to shop for Apple products on the go.” Basically, this means the app will run smoother and faster.
“When you’re on the go, the Apple Store app is the best way to research, personalize, and buy products from Apple, and get help at the Apple Retail Store,” the company also says. “It’s also the easiest way to get a new iPhone — right from your current iPhone.”
Supported languages include English, Bokmål, Norwegian, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish.
Apple Store 2.3 is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 5.0 or later.
