Apple has informed education institutions that will be renewing the Apple Store website. According to Apple, the interface of the new website will be much simpler and will guarantee the security of transactions with the company. But the warning is only shown in the education section, suggesting that the changes will only be applied in that section and not in a general level.
Anyway, if the renovation is deep and not a few light touches (new toolbar, some redistributed and simplified sections or social functions) as it has been happening for a long time, it would not be strange to see the new design extending to all sections and not only for the Apple Store of education.
I think that my colleague Miguel Michán will be one of the most interested with this news: for a long time now he has been speaking out against the closure of the online shop every time a new product appears arguing that it is something quite absurd on a website and that it only serves as a marketing strategy. A complete renovation of the Apple Online Store could bring about changes in this respect, don’t you think?
According to Apple itself we will receive more news about the new store design “during the next few weeks” . We’ll keep you posted.
