Apple has announced (opens in new tab) that its newest retail store in China is opening today. Apple Sanlitun, which is replacing another store located on Taikoo Li's open square, is twice the size of the previous location.
The new store brings a number of features enjoyed at many other Apple stores around the world, including the Forum, Viewing Gallery, and Boardroom.
The store features an integrated solar array, a first for any of Apple's stores in China.
Deirdre O'Brien, Apple's senior vice president of Retail + People, says that the store "sets a new standard for Apple Retail in China."
The new store will open at 10 a.m. CST. and, in order to attend the opening, visitors will need to scan their personal health QR code, which certifies you are in good health, in order to enter the store.
You can check out all the information about the store opening and photos of the location on the Apple Newsroom (opens in new tab) website.

For a second or two, I honestly thought the headline read "Apple Sanitarium".
