Retail SVP Deirdre O'Brien said "Our teams can't wait to connect with customers to make this season special... Whether in stores or online, our Apple Specialists are ready to welcome customers, offer gift recommendations, and provide the support customers need throughout the holidays."

Ahead of the holidays, Apple is proving customers order by dates to ensure gifts arrive on time, as well as the usual engraving, personalized accessory recommendations, and two-hour delivery in some markets. The gift guides cover the iPhone 13, new MacBook Pro (2021), Apple Watch Series 7, and more.

Apple has also partnered with global artists for its Apple Holiday Cards:

In collaboration with global artists Jocelyn Tsaih, Antti Kalevi, and Hvass&Hannibal, Today at Apple introduces downloadable Keynote templates for customers to craft personalized holiday cards for everyone on their list. Using iPad or Mac, customers can choose from festive shapes, colorful stickers, and backgrounds. They can customize their cards even further with photos, videos, and a heartfelt message. Everyone can explore the work by the artists and create their own holiday cards at apple.com/us/shop/gifts.

Apple also announced The Grove store in LA will open on November 19. The store has been relocated after serving more than 27 million visitors since it opened in 2002.
