Apple has updated its official retail app with a cleaner look for iPhone that matches the iPad version.

In fact, today’s update is mostly about tying the experience of the app together between devices. From now on, any shopping you do inside the Apple Store app will be wirelessly synced from device to device. So you can add items to your cart on the iPhone, add more on the iPad, and then complete the purchases on your Mac.

Some smaller design tweaks, new icon, and layout improvements have also been added.

The all-new “Stores” tab in the app will help you “find out about upcoming events and workshops at nearby Apple Retail Stores.” On the iPad, you can now make One to One reservations to meet with an Apple specialist.

There’s a new tab dedicated to your Apple account where you can make changes on details such as billing and credit card number.

Version 3.0 of the Apple Store app is available now as a free, universal download in the App Store.
