Apple is testing out a new way to display iPhones in some stores in the UK and Canada — completely naked. On Saturday, Apple will reopen its fancy flagship store in London after a year-long renovation, showing off the brand new iPhone 7 without any security tethers, which presumably makes it extremely easy for any casual shopper to pocket one.

Apple has just unveiled a new store in San Francisco's Union Square, and it's the template for a new style that will likely eventually be replicated all over the globe, including the most "significant" Australian stores in Sydney and Melbourne. As well as an in-store garden grove for Genius appointments and a 6K-resolution video wall, there's also a plaza that will be open to the public 24 hours a day with free Wi-Fi and music performances.

All 22 of Australia's Apple Stores will be hosting Hour of Code workshops this Thursday, inviting kids in to teach them about coding as part of Computer Science Education Week. What's more, Apple will be opening a room on the App Store today called Hour of Code 2015. This room will provide resources including apps and iTunes U courses for anyone who can't make it into a store.

Apple opened its first brick-and-mortar store back in 2001, and they have spread to pretty much everywhere since, as you can see in an animated map from Business Insider. Is there anywhere you can go where there isn't an Apple Store nearby?

This isn't brick and mortar, it's glass and steel. Pseudonymous Apple Store employee J. K. Appleseed walks you through a choose-your-own-adventure story with a twist. Yep, we're going backstage at Apple Retail, the supercollider of human expectations and consumer technology.

When you walk inside an Apple store and start swiping one of their iPads, a clingy, colourful shirt wearing person usually attaches themselves to you and gives you the verbal rubdown of the features. It's part of the Apple Store experience! But what if that Apple Store employee was a fake? What if they scared you away with rumours of diseased products, advice to buy Android phones and unbelievable steals? Well, it'd be pretty damn funny.

I didn't know this until I went to work for Apple Retail, but their credo is "Enriching Lives". I never had a job with a philosophy attached to it. I know the Marines have one. It's Semper Fi. If you see that on a bumper sticker, it's Latin for "Mess with this car, and you're dog meat."
