Last week Apple announced that it’s closing down its stores outside of China in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. At first, the stores were supposed to remain closed until March 27, but the company has now changed the announcement on its website saying that they will stay closed “until further notice”.
Interestingly, the FAQ page still says March 27 so the indefinite closure of the stores might not necessarily mean expansion of the lockdown.
One thing’s for sure, though – Apple’s online store is still working and it’s accepting orders. So if you are in the market for an Apple device, you can still get one online.
