Those looking to buy Macs or an Apple TV from an iPhone might soon be in luck.
Apple is planning to launch an Apple Store application for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, according to the Boy Genius Report and MacRumors. Citing only "sources," the publications claim the app will be available for free, launch on Tuesday, and allow consumers to purchase products from their mobile devices. The sources say consumers will also be able to use the app to make Genius Bar appointments and browse the company's entire listing of products.
So far, details on the new application are scant, and Apple has not said a word about the possibility of such an application making its way to its App Store. So, at this point, consider this just a rumor until Apple either confirms or denies its existence.
Apple did not immediately respond to request for comment.
