It seems that Apple is increasingly interested in getting more customers to use its official Apple Store app. Yesterday we shared with you the news that a popular astronomy app was made available through the app, which can be viewed as an incentive to make more Apple customers use the app.
And now it seems that the company is adding another interesting feature to users of the app - same-day deliveries. For this, Apple added integration with on-demand logistics service Postmates in order to offer its customers same-day deliveries as an alternative to in-store pickups. However, this new on-demand delivery option is currently available only to San Francisco Bay Area residents who are willing to pay a fee to get their items as soon as possible.
Postmates currently operates in select cities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Washington, D.C., Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachussetts, Minnesota, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington, and Apple will probably work with the delivery company to bring the same-day delivery option to customers living in these regions, as well.
Apple products have long been available for order through Postmates' own iOS app, but this is the first time when you can actually get a same-day delivery on orders placed through the Apple Store app.
