Apple Store

In-store collection returns to the Apple Store for iPhone 5s, for now

Demand for the iPhone 5s is high, supplies are still low, but Apple has made available once more in-store collection for online purchases. The facility originally went live about a week ago following Apple's record opening weekend of sales, but quickly disappeared as supplies dried up once more.

Recent Apple Retail screw-ups rumored not to be solved, emblematic of larger, post-Jobs problem

While new Apple Retail head John Browett reportedly apologized and reversed recent staffing decisions that threatened the phenomenal experience of Apple Stores, it's now being rumored that the apologies weren't exactly sincere, weren't actually given to the staff, and may reflect a new, more profit-oriented, less customer-centric, direction instigated by Apple CEO Tim Cook and CFO Peter Oppenheimer.
