Apple is planning a worldwide overnight “refresh” of its older retail stores on the night of May 16, according to 9to5Mac. The refresh is “specifically for older and smaller stores that aren’t suitable for the full redesign we’ve seen in flagship stores,” the article adds.
"Some stores can’t accommodate all of the new design features, so are instead being treated to a design refresh which has been described as a ‘halfway house’ between the original and new looks. While some behind-the-scenes work may begin earlier, the plan appears to be for the new look to be revealed when stores re-open on May 17," says 9to5Mac.
Could the simply refresh also be a day when Apple rolls out new iPad Pros? Probably not, but I’d love to see the tablet line refreshed before June’s Worldwide Developer Conference when we’ll (hopefully) see a new iMac introduced.
