You can get your thermostat either through the online Apple Store or through the company's physical retail out …

Previous rumors that Apple will start selling Nest Learning Thermostats were proven true when the official Apple Store product page popped up. So next time you're shopping for a new iPhone or a new iPad, you can also get a Nest thermostat for $249.95, exactly 95 cents more than the price on its own website.

The round, stylish Nest has AndroidiPhone, and iPad apps you can use to remotely control your home's temperature. It's called a "learning" thermostat, because it learns your habits after one week of using it and even creates an energy-saving program for you. It might sound odd for Apple to start selling a thermostat — especially one not made by the company — but we bet one of the reasons is because Nest creator Tony Fadell used to be an Apple executive, and was involved in the development of the iPod and the first iPhone.

Just in case you prefer shopping in brick-and-mortar establishments, you can also get the thermostat from physical Apple Stores in the U.S.
