At the beginning of this year, Apple closed the mythical Apple Store located on Fifth Avenue in New York to carry out an important series of reforms with which the space for the public would go from the current 33.000 square feet to just over 77.000, more than double. In addition, Apple will include a radio booth so that the main Beats DJs can play their favorite music in addition to conducting interviews with the most important singers or groups of the moment. The scheduled date for the inauguration of this renovation is scheduled for the end of October 2018, early November, just before the whirlwind of Christmas sales.
The delays in the works carried out by Apple and the parsimony with which it takes both the reforms and the new constructions, have become commonplace for Apple, We do not know if because it wants to have controlled at all times even the smallest detail, or because it uses the fewest possible employees, but the time it takes to carry out the works and reforms is incredible. To carry out the works, Apple has been forced to remove the iconic glass cube located at the top and that gives access to the facilities.
This mythical cube saw the number of crystal pieces that it comprises reduced going from 90 glass sheets to only 15. The cube will return to the top of the facilities just before finishing the works. What we do not know is whether Apple will take advantage of the reform to further reduce the number of crystals that make up this cube. The interior of this Apple Store will debut the new design that Apple has been implementing in the last Apple Store, where wood has become one of the most used elements in decoration.
