Apple prepares for the launch of iPhone 12/Pro, fast global store pickup and Apple Store reopening

Foreign media 9to5 Mac reported that is significantly expanding its new quick store pickup service to help safely serve customers in areas where full in-store services cannot be restored due to the COVID-19 epidemic. As Apple prepares to enter the busiest product launch season of the year, new convenience services have also arrived. Apple , 12 Pro, 12 mini, new iPad Air, MagSafe accessories and HomePod mini will be available before mid-November.

As of October 18, more than 90% of Apple’s 271 stores in the United States have reopened. Except for the 14 branches outside the United States, all other branches have resumed service in some way.

After initially closing, reopening, and closing many stores due to the COVID-19 epidemic, Apple has gradually opened most of its locations a second time, usually only by appointment. Many customers are pleasantly surprised to find that iPhone 12 orders can be picked up at local stores again.

Before the launch of the iPhone 12 on October 23, at least 23 Apple stores in 8 states in the United States, 3 states in France, 2 states in the United Kingdom, and 1 state in Canada adopted Apple’s quick store pickup layout. Among them, 13 stores reopened between October 18 and 20. These stores are located in various states in the United States that are in trouble due to the recurrence of COVID-19 cases. The express form helps Apple maintain safety without giving up customers or encouraging users to rush to the next nearest open store.

The Apple Express store design was piloted in September in Berlin, California. Storefronts that use shortcuts include temporary walls at the entrance or a canteen outside, product display shelves, and sales counters with plexiglass protective covers. Services are limited to pick-up of online orders and appointment services supported by Genius. In some quick stores, customers can be allowed to enter the store after making an appointment. The pick-up method of each store is explained in the app.

Naijatechnews has learned that all domestic Apple Stores have resumed normal operations. Consumers can go directly to the Apple Store in the province or city where they are located to pick up goods or buy iPhone 12 phones according to their orders .

If you want to try the latest iPhone 12 series for yourself, booking an expert shopping is still the best way to ensure one-to-one service at the local Apple Store and reduce queue time. Please keep in mind that booking a purchase does not mean retaining the purchased product or Genius support. In many cases, express delivery from the online Apple Store will be the most convenient way to receive orders.
