- Apple is renovating its store in SoHo.
- The renovation will add a new Forum, Video Wall, and Boardroom.
- It will, however, remove the last Theater from the company's retail stores.
The Apple Store in SoHo is reportedly going to receive a major renovation. According to a new report by 9to5Mac, the renovation will not only bring a number of modern Apple store elements to the location but also remove a piece of the company's history.
The report says that the new Forum, a popular element in a number of other flagship locations, will offer a "modular seating, an improved audio system with a Hearing Loop, and a significantly larger and brighter LED Video Wall."
While the renovations have already begun, Apple has been able to keep the store open to customers due to the fact that the area being renovated is currently not being used.
Apple continues to renovate current locations as well as open new ones. Most recently, the first floating Apple Store opened at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
