Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s SVP of Retail and Online Stores, and Chief Design Officer Jonathan Ive have unveiled Apple’s new flagship store in San Francisco’s Union Square. Highlights of Apple Union Square include expansive exterior windows, interior greenery, free Wi-Fi in an outdoor public plaza, a 6K video wall, and private rooms for business training. Apple is hoping to turn the Apple Store into a community hub, with game nights with App Store editors, “creative sessions” with local artists, and live music acts. Apple says that many of these features will also be coming to an Apple Store near you. iMore has pictures and video. follow link
