New Apple Web Page Directs Customers to Its Online Shopping Services

Apple has launched a new web page that brings together links and information about its online services for customers shopping from home during the global health crisis.

apple online shopping services webpage
Titled "Everything you love about our stores is online," the new catch-all page links from the Apple.com home page and includes details about no-contact delivery options, Apple Specialist help, financing and credit options, Apple Trade In, Apple Card, order status checking, service and support.

The page also links out to "Today at Apple - At home," a series of fun how-to videos to help users get creative during the ongoing stay-at-home measures, and there's a series of category links for customers to explore products on Apple's online store.

Apple has been gradually re-opening its retail stores in countries where lockdowns have eased, although some are operating on limited hours.

Apple CEO Tim Cook last week said that Apple was going to reopen stores in Austria and Australia this week, and Apple's sole Apple Store in Vienna will be reopening on Tuesday, May 5.

We're still waiting to hear exactly when stores in North America will reopen, but Cook also said that Apple is planning to reopen a few stores in the U.S. starting in May. Store openings will be staggered, with Apple evaluating data that includes local guidelines and recommendations before reopening.

Apple Sheds More Light on iOS 17.5 Bug That Resurfaced Deleted Photos

Friday May 24, 2024 2:36 am PDT by
Last week, some iPhone users reported that Apple's iOS 17.5 update had introduced a bug that caused old photos that were deleted to reappear in the Photos app. Apple quickly released an iOS 17.5.1 update to fix the issue, but for many users, its explanation of "database corruption" in the release notes was all too brief, and did little to allay concerns about the privacy of their data.

If the company aims to function as an online retailer it should work harder to become a better one. I went online before midnight on a weekday with a few questions, including one about trade-ins, prior to buying a new MacBook Pro. I waited online more than 40 minutes before my call was answered. I was then told the US sales store was closed. I had reached a tech-support rep in Australia who couldn’t have been nicer but eventually determined I could not place my order nor add to another MBP order I had placed online earlier in the evening. I’m a big Apple fan-The company and its products – but I’d like to see it up its online sales game. At a minimum, post that the store is closed instead of directing to a number (1-800-MYAPPLE) for sales at an hour when it’s not staffed; change the recordings that first answer a call to say that sales is closed rather than forcing someone who’s trying to give Apple another couple thousand dollars to have to sit on hold on for nearly three quarters of an hour to learn that. There’s plenty that could be done with a little nod to good customer service beyond giving us a choice of three genres of music-on-hold. I guess my experience tonight coincided unfortunately with the topic of this article! :-)

... Bro did you really expect to have a normal experience like you’re used to? That’s on you. Articles have been posted for weeks saying that when things open back up that it’s going to be *weird*. You can’t expect the same magic/wow factor until the virus ceases to exist. ...




If the virus ceases to exist. I suspect what we have now is the beginning of the new normal. Things will lighten up for a bit, everyone will pay the consequences for that, then the world will learn how to live with a much stricter lockdown.

I went to Bondi Jnct Apple store today in Sydney. The experience was horrible. Staff was professional and they were extremely cautious; but waiting to be admitted, temperature check at entrance, wearing the mask provided by them and staying far away from employees, cleaning process after touching anything is just all frustrating, I loathed it. I was there for picking up my iPad Pro order and the fun and enjoyment I would get normally was replaced by a hospital-grade hygenic unsavoury experience. Such sad times.. :confused:
