Apple has updated its website to say that the Apple Store in Beijing, China will reopen on February 14, but with deadlines.
As Reuters noted, the Apple Store in Beijing will only be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time. All other Apple stores in China will not reopen until February 19 at best. It is this same that Apple will also carry out new evaluations concerning the spread of the coronavirus. The economic impact for society has been and will continue to be very significant. Indeed, there are more than 40 Apple Stores in China, which represent 10% of all Apple Stores in the world.
This week, Apple also started reopening some of its offices in China. Beyond the opening of stores and corporate activities in the country, the real risk for Apple is related to the production of current and future devices, even if the latest news in this area is very encouraging.
