Apple makes one of the bestselling phones, laptops, and tablets in the world, and a big reason behind the success of these products is the experience they offer. Experience is one of the driving forces of Apple, so it isn’t surprising to see that the company’s stores are also designed with that in mind. Take a look:

Apple Dubai Mall

It is located on the lower level of the Dubai Mall and offers a stunning view of the Dubai Fountain and the Burj Khalifa. Customers can explore the full range of Apple products here and can also join free creative sessions every day to learn new skills and get inspired by local artists and experts.

Apple Downtown Brooklyn

But despite downtown Brooklyn being in full view from the inside, the store is supposedly relatively quiet due to custom-made floors and ceilings that dampen street noise and reduce ground vibrations. Other features include potted ficus trees and rows of tables and stool chairs where customers can get help from Apple Geniuses.

Apple SoHo

Located at 103 Prince Street, the store was opened in 2002 as the first Apple retail store in the city and the largest at the time. The store occupies a former US Post Office building that dates back to the 1940s. The building was restored by Apple and architects Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, who preserved its original features such as the brick facade, cast-iron columns, and skylights. The store also features a glass staircase, a Genius Bar, and a Forum for hosting creative sessions and events.
