According to a report by blog 9to5Mac, Apple is going to completely redesign it’s native apps for online stores including the App Store, iTunes Store, and iBookStore. This piece of information was revealed to 9to5Mac by sources familiar with Apple’s upcoming iOS 6 software update. These new designs are said to focus on interactivity for users when they make purchases from Apple’s online stores. This overhaul for stock store apps in iOS 6 will also make them social. According to the report, Apple is at least testing Facebook integration in iTunes Store app for iOS 6.
In the end, 9to5Mac points out that this redesign won’t add improved search to these online stores and Apple won’t be using Chomp technology, that i acquired recently in iOS 6. It may use Chomp in later updates.
