Apple to open bigger redesigned store in Abu Dhabi’s Yas Mall

Apple said on Friday that its store in Abu Dhabi’s Yas Mall will be relocated to a larger position within the retail attraction, complete with a new design and aesthetic.

The iPhone maker did not give any other information other than confirming that the new shop would launch on February 3. Barricades have been erected around the area, the amount of which has not been disclosed.

“The relocated Apple Yas Mall store will serve as a completely reinvented place for the community to experience Apple’s goods and services, shop, and get help from expert team members,” according to a statement from Apple.

More information will be released closer to the store’s debut date.

In the UAE, Apple operates three shops. In 2015, the Yas Mall branch debuted alongside Dubai’s Mall of the Emirates branch as the first in the Middle East. The Dubai Mall location first opened its doors in 2017.

Cupertino-based Apple is the most valuable business in the world, with a current market capitalization of around $2.69 trillion as of Thursday’s closing of trade. Along with Microsoft and Saudi Aramco, the corporation is one of just three to have surpassed the $2 trillion barrier. On January 3, Apple temporarily surpassed $3 trillion, becoming the first firm to accomplish it.

It stated this week that developers on its App Store had made more over $260 billion in revenue from the sale of digital products and services on the platform since its inception in 2008. Last year, they made $60 billion on the App Store, almost $15 billion, or one-third more than in 2020.

On January 27, Apple will release its financial figures for the fiscal first quarter of 2022.
