Apple will soon be offering online fabric stores to the public through a new Apple Education store, according to a report by the company’s marketing and PR team.
The announcement was made during Apple’s WWDC 2017 keynote on June 28, 2017, when the company revealed a new iPad Pro with a redesigned Home button, a redesigned iOS 10, and a new iPhone XS and XS Max.
While the product lineup hasn’t been officially announced, the new Apple retail store is expected to launch in the fall of 2019.
Apple has been a huge proponent of online fabric sales, as the company has previously announced plans to expand the store’s offering of fabric to more than 200 million Apple customers through the Apple Store Online.
In addition to its online store, Apple has also previously launched a “Storewide Fabric” service for its stores, where customers can purchase fabric from multiple Apple retail locations and use the savings to buy more items from other Apple retail outlets.
The new Apple store is also expected to be the first physical store in the world to offer Apple’s new HomePod earphones, according the report.
The new iPhone and iPad Pro will reportedly be available in October, 2020, with the new iPhone 9 Plus and the new iPad 12 Pro expected to release later in 2020.
