Apple Store App Updated With Siri Shortcuts for Checking Product Availability and Order Status

Apple today updated its Apple Store app for iOS devices with support for Siri Shortcuts, an iOS 12 feature. Siri Shortcuts for the Apple Store app can be used to create custom voice commands to check product availability or the status of a recent order you’ve placed.

The Siri Shortcuts can be used without needing to open the Apple Store app, allowing users to get vital information in fewer steps.


When checking the “My Orders” page, there’s an “Add to Siri” button that lets you check order status. Similarly, when viewing the in-store pickup options for an item, you can use the “Add to Siri” button to create a custom Siri Shortcut.

According to Apple’s Apple Store app release notes, the update also brings delivery support for locations throughout Puerto Rico.
