Apple's App Store Now Offers Pre-Orders: How It Works

Coinbase is now the number 1 iOS app in terms of downloads

Apple's new preorder apps feature is detailed in a new iTunes Connect Resource and Help document, which was first spotted by MacStories. That's available in the US but it doesn't appear to have come to the App Store in United Kingdom and other global markets just yet.

A developer will now be able to put their app in the App Store up to 90 days in advance of its release, rather than only being able to publish their app when it's ready to launch. Developers can specify a date that's between 2 and 90 days in the future. Preorders would run for both free and paid apps.

MyEtherWallet spokesman Jordan Spence said the developer had not detected signs that the iOS app was used to steal from people who had downloaded it, but that the team was still investigating to verify that. Android users can simply pre-register for an app and be the first ones to try it upon its launch.

Although the App Store has largely remained the same since its launch in July 2008, Apple has made a number of changes over the past year and a half. BookMyShow provides end-t0-end ticketing solutions and it has been ranked consistently as one of the best apps available. The app is available in Apple's app store for £4.99 and the creators of the this popular Ethereum have confirmed that it has nothing to do with them. It seems as though that may have been the precedent to the new pre-order feature.

The unofficial version of the MyEtherWallet app had become third most popular app in the paid finance category of App Store over the weekend.

Under the new model, a user can select from two available options. At the same time, Apple will charge users for the purchase.
