No more checking e-mail repeatedly for updates

Apple has added a new feature to the Apple Store that will help keep online shoppers in the know when it comes to where exactly their products are. Previously Apple offered only e-mail order updates. With new feature, users can now get updates via text message directly to their mobile phone.

Apple will send text messages between the hours of 8 AM and 9 PM in whatever time zone the user lives in. Users will also be able to stop the text message updates by replying to an update the word "stop." It should be a good way for users to keep up with their packages without having to open mail applications.
