Apple Stores prepping for delayed launch of self-checkout

EasyPay to extend beyond Apple workers

Apple is on the verge of rolling out its app-based self-checkout system at retail, a photo from a 9to5Mac source suggests. The image depicts a Speck iPhone case on a rack, with a sign promoting a consumer version of EasyPay, the checkout system Apple clerks use. "Use the Apple Store App on your iPhone to pay for these products on your own," the message reads.

Reports originally had app checkout launching as soon as Thursday. Allegedly, though, there have been "last minute delays" forcing Apple to briefly postpone the introduction. What these might be is unmentioned, but the company has yet to push out the updated Apple Store app that will be need to scan products and upload data.

    Why not?

    I pay for downloadable software online, all by myself, without the help of a cashier or salesperson. When I pay, I immediately get to enjoy the product (after a short download, of course).

    Apply this to real-life purchases, and Apple may be on to something...
