Apple extends their store closing indefinitely

Written by Matti Robinson @ 18 Mar 2020 2:19

Apple extends their store closing indefinitely Apple has decided to extend the closing of their brick-and-mortar stores. Previously Apple intended to open the stores outside China to the public again after March 27.
Coronavirus has gotten more intense in the past around the world, and most governments have decided to close schools, ban gatherings, and discourage needless contact. This is as good a reason as any to extend close closing further.

At this point Apple doesn't know how long Apple Stores are going to stay closed. It wholly depends on the spread of the virus, and likely stores will open at different points in different regions.

Apple's online store will function as expected, and you can get all the products shipped to you if needed. In repair or warranty issues, Apple asks customers to contact them by email or phone.

Some of the third-party retailers are still open so you can get products from the likes of Best Buy, at least for now.

In China, Apple Stores are already open. Number of new cases has rapidly dropped in the recent weeks, and in many ways China is back to regular business.
