Apple has launched a dedicated online store for military veterans, personnel and their immediate families, with deep discounts.

The iPhone maker is the latest to offer special incentives to the military community after several wireless carriers ramped up offers and programmes that benefit active military and veterans.

“At Apple we are deeply grateful to the men and women of our armed forces. We’re proud to offer active military and veterans a new dedicated online store with special pricing as an expression of our gratitude for their brave service,” CNET reported late on Monday quoting the company as saying.

The company is offering discount on hardware, software, speakers and Apple’s accessories, including products from third parties.

Active military and veterans have been eligible in the past for purchases made in Apple’s store for government employees, though that store only includes select products and omits some of the biggest draws. The iPhone and Apple Watch, are among those not discounted, according to USA Today.

Apple users will now be able to stay up to date on their favourite places right from the Google Maps app on iOS, the Internet giant has announced.

Users can search for a place – whether it’s a new restaurant that just opened up in the neighbourhood or that must-try bakery across town – and tap the “Follow” button.

“You’ll then be able to see important updates from these places in your ‘For You’ tab so you can quickly learn about upcoming events, offers and more,” Andrew Cooper, Product Manager, Google Maps, wrote in a blog post late on Wednesday.
