Apple has updated its Apple Store app for the iPhone to introduce push notifications for delivery updates. So when you order an item from the Apple Store, you’ll receive updates on its delivery status without having to check manually. The Cupertino company will even let you know when your iPhone is ready for an upgrade.Apple will send you a notification when your item has shipped, any updates on its progress as it makes its way to your door, and then finally a notification to let you know your item has been delivered.

In addition to this, customers in the United States also have the option to receive push notifications to let them know when they’re eligible for an upgrade. Most of you probably know when your contract is up — if you’re anything like me you’ll be counting down the weeks until you can get a new phone — but if you don’t keep an eye on it Apple can do it for you.

As you’d expect, these push notifications can be customized within the Apple Store app. Just hit the ‘More’ tab at the bottom of the screen and then select ‘Notifications’ and you can enable or disable them as you wish.

The latest version of the Apple Store app for iPhone can be downloaded from the App Store now.
