A new app for reading Mac hardware prices, capabilities, and comparing models will be loaded up onto showroom units. The app will be positioned on the left side of the Mac dock and will be fully interactive, like the former Smart Signs. There will be an option to call over an Apple Store employee, like the Smart Signs. As for iOS devices, a similar app will be placed on the Home screens of iPads and iPhones in the stores.
The change will affect retail stores across the globe and will launch starting on Wednesday. Employees are being asked to discuss the apps with customers as they walk into the Apple Store.
The additional space freed up by the removal of the Smart Signs will be filled with more demo units.
