Apple readying overhaul of online educational storefront

updated 03:20 pm EDT, Wed April 4, 2012

Could hint at wider store changes

Apple is planning to do a significant overhaul of its online storefront for schools, according to AppleInsider. The site notes that Apple's K-12 store is displaying an alert about "the new Apple Store," which has yet to get a launch timeframe. "Proposal creation, order status, and a dramatically simplified user interface will make it easier to do business with Apple -- all in a secure and reliable environment," Apple states.

"The transition to the new store will be easy," the alert continues. "Your current Apple ID and password will continue to work. In the coming weeks, you will receive more information about the store's features, benefits, and launch date."

Although the message suggests that Apple is only intending to revise the educational storefront, it could hint at broader changes. Apple has been gradually upgrading its main online store during the past few years, just last month adding an "Answers from the Community" section to product pages.
