From July and August 2018 onwards, Shopify will change the way in which you will have to edit the variants of your products in a totally new way.

When your shop has been updated, you would see the information banner right under the word Variants. Once you have seen this notification, you can apply a brand new way which is much more simple to edit your variants.

If you haven’t seen this notification, this means the new ways to edit variants is not activated. To edit variants of a product, you will have to use the old-fashioned way.

The instructions below will give you the most basic steps on how to edit variants in a new way on Shopify for all the devices, including Desktop, iPhone, and Android.
