Apple's design is what has made it so successful: user-friendly and increasingly appealing, with sleek lines and crisp whites. That philosophy extends to its retail stores, too.
Inside, all of the stores look pretty much the same — Apple trademarked its store layout in 2013 — but each one offers its own unique look from the outside. Many stores are located in famed sites and historic buildings: Take, for example, Apple's location in an old bank building just across the street from a distinguished opera house in Paris, or its space in New York City's Grand Central Station.
Angela Ahrendts, Apple's former senior vice president of retail, had a vision for Apple stores: "A combination of experience and human connection," she told Vogue Business earlier this year.
Apple now operates more than 500 retail stores in 25 countries, so it is likely wherever you go, there is an Apple store a short walk down the street.
