Apple's App Store app has been updated, with the primary addition being the ability to allow users to make purchases from the Apple Watch.

With version 4.1 of the app, users can favorite items from the Apple website or from another iOS device, and pay with Apple Pay directly from the Apple Watch. Purchasing from favorites is limited to accessories, such as cases and headphones.

The update also adds rich notifications for alerts from the app.

The new version of the Apple Store app requires 70.9MB of iOS device storage space, watchOS 3 for the Apple Watch functionality, and iOS 9 at a minimum. Rich notifications require iOS 10.
