The store's interior features a distinctive wood-paneled design that can be seen in this 360-degree virtual tour, from Storeteller:
The new store features the dedicated pickup station instead of a forum, likely reflecting a shift in the Apple retail experience as more people look to buy from Apple online rather than visit for extended store experiences. That means collecting Apple's new best iPhone is now easier than ever at the new Bronx Apple store, just in time for launch weekend!
