Apple Store app sends push notification promoting new iPhone XR and XS models

“Apple on Thursday sent out a rare push notification promoting its latest iPhone XR and XS models to iPhone Upgrade Program members, continuing an advertising blitz that began with a limited time trade-in offer last month,” Mikey Campbell reports for AppleInsider.

“The advertisement showed up this afternoon as a push notification from the Apple Store app for iOS. How Apple generated the recipient list — and how large that list is — is unclear, but the promotion specifically targets iPhone Upgrade Program customers,” Campbell reports. “‘Your new iPhone is ready.

“Bening insofar as advertisements are concerned, the blurb is notable for Apple, a company that rarely turns to push notifications in an attempt to goose sales,” Campbell reports.
