One of the biggest new features to come along with iOS 12 is the ability to create shortcuts that Siri can take advantage of, making a variety of tasks just a voice command away.
There are a variety of different third-party Siri Shortcuts options out there, but the first-party options can’t be ignored. That includes a new update to the iOS Apple Store app, which now supports Siri Shortcuts. That’s all well and good by itself, but it actually makes pre-ordering the upcoming iPhone XR a lot easier, which is certainly noteworthy.
Apple actually points out the ability to pre-order the upcoming iPhone XR with Siri Shortcuts right in the “What’s New” section of the app:
“iPhone Upgrade Program members can now use Siri Shortcuts for an even faster way to complete their iPhone XR pre-order on 10.19. Look for the ‘Add to Siri’ button while getting pre-approved, and record your own voice command, like “pre-order my iPhone.” Say your phrase when pre-order begins, and let Siri pull up your pre-approval in the Apple Store app so you can quickly complete your order.”
As noted above, the process is a bit more streamlined thank to the ability to tell Siri “pre-order my iPhone” and the process is completed right after.
The updated app appears to only include this particular feature, but there are probably additional tweaks behind-the-scenes to improve the app’s stability and what not. Either way, the new Apple Store app is available to download and install right now.
A link to do so is available below.
