Apple has announced that the great majority of its worldwide Apple Stores are currently open, and that its new iPad Pro, Apple TV 4K and M1 24-inch iMac, will be available in all of them.
"With more than 99 percent of worldwide Apple Store locations open as of Friday, visitors will be able to experience the full line of new products in person with help from an Apple Specialist," said the company in a statement.
There is a caveat about the new iMac, though, with a small difference in availability depending on the configuration options.
"iMac models in green, pink, blue, and silver will be available for purchase at Apple Store locations, and all seven colors of iMac will be available at apple.com and on display at most Apple Store locations," continues the statement.
Apple is also promoting how the stores offer customers in-store training.
"Customers who buy iPad, iPhone, Mac, or Apple Watch directly from Apple receive a free, customized one-on-one personal session with an Apple Specialist," says Apple. "Customers can also sign up for Today at Apple Product Skills sessions to learn the basics of the latest iPad, iPhone, or Mac."
"Apple Creatives will show customers how to navigate their device, customize settings, and discover ways to be more productive with their device, while exploring the latest features of iOS and sharing a few of their favorite tips," it continues.
Apple Stores are continuing to use increased health measures because of the coronavirus. However, they have been steadily reopening worldwide.
