Tidbits: The Apple Watch display table at Yas Mall is placed to the far left of the entry nearest the Avenues (out of frame in the photo above.) Most stores anchor this table near the front center of the store. This is a curious and notable break from tradition.
At the back right of the store behind the Forum is an alcove strikingly similar in design to the Apple Pickup zone at Apple Valley Fair
, though it isn’t labeled as such or called out in Apple’s press release. Apple Pickup is not an available service listed on the UAE Delivery site
I think it’s safe to conclude that this space signals Apple will — or at least aspires to — launch Apple Pickup in the UAE relatively soon. In the meantime, it’ll function as a great window for express purchasing.
