Apple Geniuses Finally Finish Working on Covent Garden Store

More from: | Gizmodo UK |

The flagship Apple store in Covent Garden will reopen on the 26th of October after three months closed for refurbishment.

According to MacRumors, Apple announced the reopening in its Apple Store app, alongside an unusually colourful graphic made for the occasion.

The reopening coincides with the launch of the £749 iPhone XR, the so-called ‘cheap iPhone.’ With low-end prices like that, we’re expecting a store with actual gold walls.

The store was shuttered in June to implement the new Apple Store design that’s been rolling out around the world, starting with San Francisco’s Union Square branch. That design, debuted in 2016, includes lots of indoor greenery and a ‘Genius Grove’. Yep, really.
