The first update now allows you to import the details of a Genius Bar reservation into a pass in the Wallet app. When you arrive at the Apple Store, you can simply pull out your iPhone and have an Apple employee scan your reservation to get checked in.
In addition, Apple has made it easier to find help online. Customers can now search for an Advisor that speaks your preferred language as well as implementing better support for VoiceOver.
