Two weeks ago, Apple confirmed that it will be opening a third Singapore store at Marina Bay Sands (MBS).
It announced today that the upcoming store will be officially opened this Thursday (10 September).
The upcoming store will be housed in a dome-like structure that floats on the waters of Marina Bay — and will the be first Apple store in the world that sits on water.
Apple fans who are ready to camp to enter the store on opening day have to take note that they can’t just show up without an official entry pass.
They would have to book an appointment here first. Capacity will be limited, so visitors may experience wait times before entering the store.
Even if you can’t make it inside on opening day, you can still sneak a peek from the outside since the exterior is see-through.
For now, you can simply enjoy the Apple store at MBS in photos:
Entirely surrounded by water, Apple MBS offers uninterrupted 360-degree panoramic views of the city and its spectacular skyline through its all-glass dome structure.
Inspired by the Pantheon in Rome, an oculus located at the apex of the dome provides a flooding ray of light that travels through the space.
In the store, visitors can explore curated Apple products and accessories, receive personal technical support from Geniuses, or simply take in the stunning view of Marina Bay.
The Forum is centred around a Video Wall, which will serve as the stage for Today at Apple sessions featuring Singapore’s artists, musicians, and creators.
Entrepreneurs and developers interested in receiving training and advice can meet with Apple team members in Apple’s first underwater Boardroom, located on the lower level of the store.
If you can’t secure a slot, fret not. The new Apple store will allow walk-ins from Friday (11 September).
Since the store is highly-anticipated, do expect long queues. Remember, we’re still in the midst of a pandemic — so be sure to avoid crowds and practice social distancing!
The store isn’t going anywhere anyway, so you have plenty of time to drop by in the future.
