Apple today updated its Apple Store app [ App Store ] for iOS to version 2.1, adding several new features and making the app available in the Netherlands for the first time to support the Amsterdam store opening this week. Among the most notable additions to the app is a new “Account” section where users can update their billing information and addresses as well as shipping addresses right from the app. Users have until now had to log into their accounts through the Apple website in order to update payment methods if they wished to change them for an in-store EasyPay purchase. Apple also touts the ability for customers in the United States to choose from any of the three iPhone carriers when purchasing an iPhone through the app. What’s New in Version 2.1 – Choose iPhone plans from all three U.S.

While shortages of the Apple TV at numerous high-profile resellers have been documented for weeks and part numbers indicating an update alongside the iPad 3 next week have been revealed, AppleInsider now notes that Apple has specifically been stalling in delivering promised shipments of the device to resellers. For three consecutive weeks, the Cupertino-based company has failed to make good on its promissory to restock indirect channel partners with fresh inventory of the existing $99 Apple TV product, say people familiar with matter. Instead, partners and channel members have seen Apple push back deliveries each consecutive week by one additional week — a practice that almost always foreshadows a formal discontinuation of a product ahead of new models. Even Apple’s own stores are beginning to see shortages of the device as Apple draws down supplies ahead of the refresh. While the company’s online store is still reflecting an “in stock” status, those customers opting for the in-store pickup option will find that many Apple retail stores are currently out of stock.
In addition to its report today about a potential 14-inch MacBook Air , DigiTimes also claims that Apple is expected to launch its thinner MacBook Pro models perhaps as soon as April. The report is a bit inconsistent in describing the timing, initially stating that the debut would be in April “at the soonest” while later simply mentioning that they are expected in April. The report specifies that the redesigned models will include 13-inch and 15-inch models, but there is no word on the 17-inch MacBook Pro. Previous reports have indicated that the redesigned 17-inch model could appear slightly later than the smaller models, similar to Apple’s rollout of the unibody MacBook Pro in late 2008 and early 2009. Apple is expected to launch new MacBook Pro notebooks with an even thinner and lighter design than existing models in April, at the soonest.

DigiTimes reports that Apple is considering launching a 14-inch MacBook Air model, a move that would appear to be targeting Asian markets where the size is popular with consumers.
