Apple’s 1st Retail Store in Singapore has made huge progress in the recent weeks, from the barricades being removed to having it to be wrapped up featuring the Retail Store’s name with the phrase “Apple Loves Singapore” in emoji or in term of shapes.
Apple Orchard Road will open on May 27 at 10 am and is now officially in the list of Retail Stores around the world, with Singapore being added in the list of countries with an Apple Retail Store. This comes after a 19-month long wait since October 2015 when Apple first announced plans of having a Retail Store.
Having announced “Today at Apple” just last April, it’s indeed coming to Apple Orchard Road. Apple has an exclusive performance and session for the weekend on both days featuring Sezairi and Aik Being Chia.
They are due to have a performance or session on Saturday (27 May) from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm and Sunday (28 May) from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm, respectively.
Apart from performances and sessions, there are also lessons and classes that you can learn and experience Apple products and services, such as the iPhone, iPad or Mac and different other apps from Apple themselves for FREE.
The first lesson at Apple Orchard Road is on 28 May at 10 am for “Basics: Apple TV” and it allows you to:
Discover all the content you can enjoy on Apple TV and all the ways to connect with it. We’ll show you how to navigate and customise your Apple TV.
There are other ‘Basics’ lessons as well that you can attend to, such as the iPhone, iPad, and Mac. If you are looking for other types of content, you can select the options to show the different categories of lessons, classes, and sessions to attend.
As for every lessons and session, there is a limited amount of participants, to sometimes keep the group circle small. It is strongly recommended to make a reservation if you are interested.
To reserve, click on “Sign me up” and follow through the process with your Apple ID. You will be sent a confirmation email that you have successfully reserved. You can also view and manage reservation to “Add to Calendar” or cancel.
It is strongly recommended to attend these lessons and sessions as they cover in depth of the product and other services.
On the Apple Store app, which was refreshed with the announcement of the opening date for Apple Orchard Road, you are able to Make and Manage Reservations, Setting up a Repair with the Genius Bar and etc. If you have used the Apple Store app for other countries, it will be similar to using them for Singapore.
