According to the report, the store will open in Istanbul's Akasya Shopping Center and may coincide with the launch of the iPhone 6 this fall. Photos of the store's construction show workers laying out flooring and wooden tables, as the store's front glass exterior and trademark logo already appear to be put up.

Apple's first location in Turkey opened this past April at Istanbul's Zorlu Center, and features a unique cubic design with glass sides and a glass ceiling. Apple's manager of retail stores Steve Cano also led a press tour of the store before its opening.

Yet we have so few within the UK still.


I know. A mere 37 stores for our 60m population. Meanwhile Turkey will make do with 2 for 74m.

I think they open stores based on population, etc... If you live in a smaller city chances are low that Apple is considering opening a store anytime soon.
