All 270 Apple stores in the US have fully or partially reopened after quarantine restrictions.
For the first time in almost a year, all Apple Inc retail stores have opened in the United States, Bloomberg reports.
The company is noted to have suspended all of its retail outlets outside of China on March 13, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictions. In the PRC, stores were closed in February.
And last Monday, all 270 Apple stores in the US reopened to one degree or another, although some of them continue to have certain restrictions, such as pre-registration. Stores in Texas were the last to open on Monday after delays caused by the worst winter storm in February.
However, about a dozen Apple outlets in France and Brazil are still closed.
Apple shares rose 5.4% on Monday, the highest gain in more than four months. At additional trades, they continued to rise in price (+ 0.7%).
Recall that for the first time since 2016, Apple took first place in the list of the most expensive brands in the world.
Earlier it was reported that the release of the iPhone 13 was postponed for a year. And this year there will be intermediate versions of smartphones called the iPhone 12s.
