Apple now requires all users booking a Genius Bar appointment online to sign in using an Apple ID. In the past, only a name, address, and email were required, but the Genius Bar appointment page now asks for an Apple ID and password. A report notes Apple is trying to link the Apple ID with all actions in the company’s ecosystem. Additionally, by tying appointments to one specific Apple ID, scalping issues — such as those reported in China — should be eliminated. [via TechCrunch]
