Apple Store for iPhone Updated with Account Management

Early this morning, Apple updated their online Apple Store app for the iPhone to version 2.1, bringing a variety of new features and app access for users based in The Netherlands — this is because they are launching a new Amsterdam store there on March 3rd. The app’s new features include a new “Account” section in the “More” tab of the app which enables users to modify their payment information and shipping addresses from within the app…

Previously, users were lead to manage their accounts on the desktop version of Apple’s online store to change any of this information. Apple is now helping mobile customers in purchasing products at their store by integrating an account management system into their iPhone app.

Other changes include the ability to choose iPhone plans from one of the three carriers within the United States — this feature is exclusive to the US, though it may eventually make its way to international territory. Lastly, the Apple Store app now requires that the device it is to be installed on have iOS 4.3.3 or later installed. Here’s the full list of changes in version 2.1:

- Choose iPhone plans from all three U.S. carriers — AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint (U.S. Only)
- Make your shopping experience even more convenient with new account management editing and billing options.
- The Apple Store app is now available in the Netherlands.
- Requires iOS 4.3.3 or higher.

Apple Store for iPhone version 2.1 is available for free in the App Store, so go grab the update today.
