Since their creation in 2001, Apple Stores have continued to spread across the United States, before conquering the world.
The counter is now at 491, and the 492nd Apple Store will be inaugurated this weekend in Cologne, Germany (March 25)! There is no doubt that the 500 mark will be reached this year, with future Apple Stores opening for the first time in Korea, Austria and India, and new stores planned in Singapore and the United Arab Emirates.
