Apple will reportedly release a new Apple Store app on Thursday that brings numerous new features, reports BGR.

While information about Apple's new iOS app and retail plans have leaked out in various forms over the past few weeks, we now have the whole story thanks to a trusted source.

● If a customer orders an in-stock product, pick up will be available approximately 12 minutes after completing the order. Sustomers will be able to walk into the Apple Store, skip lines, skip registers, get their products, sign for them and leave.
● If a customer orders something that a retail store does not have in-stock the customer will be a given a pick-up date right after the purchase is completed. A push notification will be sent to the customer when the order is ready. 12 minutes from the time the push notification is received, the customer's order should be waiting to be signed for.
● Customers who opt to purchase online or through the app will be given priority when they walk into the store.
● Apple will offer customers the ability to return items purchased online to retail stores.
● Lastly, we're told that Apple will be attributing revenue from items purchased in this manner to the retail store where the items are delivered and retrieved. Apple is reportedly expecting a 30% increase in sales at retail stores from this program, and it will only be available in the U.S. for now.

Finally, BGR notes as its been previously reported, that Apple will enable self checkout at its retail stores; however, their source says Apple will NOT be checking purchases.
