Where do you get those Apple shirts? Those Apple mugs and, wow, those Apple pens? That's one of the questions I've been getting asked the most lately. And, since so many people are at or around WWDC 2018 this week, I thought it'd be the perfect time to answer: Apple sells them at its campus stores in Cupertino, California.
The first is the original: Apple Store Infinite Loop. Located just off North De Anza Blvd and Mariani Ave, it's at 1 Infinite Loop, just before the main entrance to Apple's icon campus.
And, confession, I still like the IL Store best. Not because of the facilities but because of the content. Here, you can get Apple journals and Apple mugs, Apple water bottles, and Apple pens. And yes, the pens match the silver, space gray, gold, and rose gold finishes of the iPhone 6s line — and just recently added, the Jet Black of iPhone 7 as well.
And the shirts are just the best. They're always changing, some going away, others rotating in an out, so aside from the classic logos, you never know what you're going to get. Right now, I love the exploded hardware shirts. Mac and iPod are timeless. AirPods and Apple Watch more timely. HomePod is the latest addition.
I've gotten Swift and Metal shirts, Siri and slogan shirts over the years as well. The only thing I really miss are the old hoodies. You can sometimes get them at the WWDC pop up shop, but I'm still filing a Radar with the Store team: Expected behavior, hoodies.
The second place is Apple Park Visitor's Center. Located just off Steven's Creek Blvd. on North Tantau Ave. and across the street from the new Ring, it's part of a much larger complex that also houses a coffee and tea shop, an augmented reality experience, and an upper floor observation deck.
The shirts, at least right now, are restricted to Apple logos and the Ring. But there's some other cool stuff here as well, including an Apple-themed memory card game, new baseball cap designs, and even tote bags.
Whenever I find myself in or around Cupertino, even if I have to drive down from San Francisco, I make it a point to stop by IL and AC2 and see what's new in the swag department.
