After officially announcing the opening of a new Apple Store in Macau, Apple is now preparing to have an official store in Tel Aviv . It will be the first Apple Store in Israel and also in the entire Middle East.
Report it to Globes, half Israeli. 9to5Mac reflects that the store could be opened in the mall that will house a skyscraper that will be called Azrieli Tower (in the photo) and that is currently under construction. Apparently it is not something that is completely confirmed, but there are conversations to make it possible.
Even if not with its stores, Apple has a strong presence in Israel . It is there that it has a research and development center that has already had to be expanded since it opened about three years ago. In addition, Tim Cook has received a visit from the Prime Minister of Israel in Cupertino.
Therefore, taking into account that this R&D center is literally the largest Apple has in the world , it is not unusual to see how Apple is interested in having its official stores there. Right now there are two authorized distributors there, iStore and iDigital. They may soon have to coexist with this Apple Store.
