Apple iPhone users can now order Apple store items online and pick them up at the nearest outlet and even avoid the checkout line by paying for those items themselves.

Those two new options come courtesy of the latest update to the Apple Store app for the iPhone , iPad, and iPod Touch. Debuting today, version 2.0 of the Apple Store app is the company’s latest effort to make the shopping experience, both online and offline, easier and quicker.

The personal pickup option lets you order and pay for an item through the app itself. But rather than waiting for it to ship, you can simply make plans to hop on down to your closest Apple store and pick up the product yourself. The app lets you choose the store and tells you if the item is in stock. From there, you just check out and pay for the item using the credit card assigned to your Apple account.

Apple is promising that most in-stock items will be available within an hour of placing the order. You can easily track the status of new orders directly through the app to determine when your item will be available.
