  • PSA: If You Delete Apple Pay Cash You Can't Reinstall It

Rather being simply notified of an app's availability, the App Store can let you pre-order apps much like you would a physical product.

Apple's note for app developers said that new apps for iOS, macOS and tvOS can be made available for pre-order when they submit their app and metadata for review in iTunes Connect. The new feature offers pre-order for up to 90-days before the launch. That means you won't be charged $1.99 if you pre-ordered the app when it was listed for 99ยข.

If it's a paid app, individuals will be charged prior to download.

Apple has launched a new feature allowing users to preorder apps. Developers can advertise their apps well ahead of time and the customers too can buy one if they like in the nick of time. We actually saw a preview of this pre-order system back when Super Mario Run was preparing for release previous year. iOS users could request a notification for release and clearly Apple decided it was worthwhile expanding that system into a full pre-order solution for all three of its operating system platforms. The interesting bit is, you will be able to pre-order the app even before the official release.


You may recall that when Super Mario Run was announced in 2016, customers could request notification of its release, which was a first at the time on the App Store.

Growing public interest in bitcoin and other popular cyrptocurrencies has helped push a fake wallet app to the top of the Finance section in Apple's App Store. The app will automatically be downloaded to their Apple gadgets on the day it is published. To pre-order an app, users just need to tap on the price and tap "pre-order" or tap the "Get" button if it's free. Not only does it ensure the quality of the app selection, it also ensures the integrity of Apple's name.

Removing the app isn't a big deal unless you delete it, then later decide you want to use Apple Pay Cash.
