Apple Stores welcome over 500 million visitors per year. Under the direction of Deirdre O’Brien, Apple’s 511 locations in 22 countries are staffed by more than 70,000 team members and 3,000 Creative Pros.

Beyond their award-winning architecture and landmark designs, Apple Stores are known for their focus on education and creativity.

Older “classic” locations are being upgraded to accommodate the same experience.
