Apple Store iPad Smart Signs to be Replaced With Mac and iOS Apps

Posted by · 10696 views · Translate
Apple is planning to remove the iPad Smart Signs used in its retail stores and replace them with new dedicated pricing apps on Mac and iOS devices, reports 9to5Mac.

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.

Great idea. Less clutter and room for more demo items per table. And any time I've been in an Apple store most people never looked at smart signs anyway...never knew what to make of them.

Not a good idea for senior citizens. More confusion.

In a Visual Merchandiser's point of view, it is a smart move.

Great all that will happen is people will close it down and no one will know the price...
