Interactive iPad Displays Featured on Apple’s Retail Store 2.0
The Apple Retail Store is now packed with stationary iPads to aid customer support.
In celebration of Apple’s 10th retail store anniversary, the company has launched its Retail 2.0 last Sunday. The Retail 2.0 added stationary iPads placed next to other Apple products that display prices, information and features. In addition to this, the device can also be used to compare models and ask for help from a specialist.
The touchscreen tablets are said to be running on a custom software, since pressing its home button does nothing. The new in-house iPads were scheduled to be rolled out with Apple’s proprietary retail software — RetailMe.
GADG reported last week that Apple scheduled a retail meeting last Sunday, allowing many rumors to heat up. It turns out that the company set overnight shifts for retail employees to prepare for the Apple Store update. It has also taken the Order Status page from its website offline yesterday, in order to execute system update.
A recent report claims that Apple will update its Apple Store retail app for iOS this weekend. The iteration will enable full build-to-order purchasing options to the application.
