Amazon Disables Its Original iOS App in India, Customers Required to Switch to New App or Use Website

Amazon has finally disabled its original iOS app for customers in India, and is now asking them to either switch to its new 'Amazon India - Shop and Pay' app or use the Amazon.in website to shop from their Apple devices. The new change comes several months after the US e-commerce giant placed a splash screen on its older iOS app encouraging users to switch to the new app that includes support for scanning Unified Payments Interface (UPI) QR codes and sign up for the Amazon Pay UPI service. If you already have the original Amazon app on your iOS device, you'll be taken directly to the Amazon.in website once you open the app. This means that you will no longer be able to make any purchases through the existing app. Prior to the latest update, the older Amazon app was showing a splash screen that was warning users about its disappearance by saying, “Support for this app will stop soon.” The banner, however, included a button to dismiss the warning, which is no longer available. Instead, the new change has replaced that dismiss button with a link that reads, “Shop on Amazon.in website.” As per the details provided.
