Apple is significantly expanding its new Express Storefront pick-up service to help safely serve customers in regions where full in-store service cannot be resumed due to COVID-19 conditions. The new premises arrive as Apple prepares to enter its busiest product launch season of the year. The iPhone 12, 12 Pro, 12 mini, new iPad Air, MagSafe and HomePod mini accessories will be available by mid-November.
As of Oct. 18, more than 90 percent of Apple’s 271 stores in the United States have reopened. All but 14 locations outside the United States have resumed their service to some extent.
After initially closing, reopening, and closing many stores due to the pandemic, Apple gradually reopened most locations for the second time, often by appointment. Many customers who are unaware of the reopening are surprised to find that orders for the iPhone 1
Here’s what the trip looks like so far:
At least 23 Apple stores in 8 US states, 3 in France, 2 in the UK and 1 in Canada have adopted Apple Express Storefront layouts before launching the iPhone on October 23. Thirteen of these stores reopen between Oct. 18 and 20 in the United States, which is battling a resurgence of COVID-19 cases. The Express format helps Apple maintain security without abandoning customers or encouraging additional travel to the next nearest open store.
The design of the Apple Express Storefront was piloted in September in Burlingame, California. Express-format stores include a temporary entrance wall or pavilion outside, product display racks, and stalls selling Plexiglas shields. The service is limited to online orders and Genius support by appointment. In a subset of the Express Store windows, customers can be admitted to the store with a shopping arrangement. The picking methods for each store location are described in the Apple Store app.
