Apple's iBeacon will find its way to Apple Store customer pockets on Friday. Apple will start using the iBeacon feature built into iOS 7 to be a personal shopper for customers on Friday at its 254 stores across the US. As long as a user has Apple's official Store app installed and allows the program to track his or her location, it can provide insight into what they're near in the store, as well as provide order updates that can be shared with sales staff on the floor.
