Lines outside Apple Stores may soon be a thing of the past

Lines outside of Apple Stores are a strange occurrence. Waiting outside for a phone or computer seems so — well, silly. It started with the first iPhone, and hasn’t stopped. While Apple Stores don’t see overnight lines every time they bring something new to the in-store tables, people do line up. Apple Store chief Angela Ahrendts wants that to stop, apparently. She’s said to have circulated a memo to Apple Store staffers, encouraging them to tell line-squatters to buy online and pick up in store.

Apple’s trade-in program in China may not be going so well

A new iPhone is expensive, which is why Apple’s trade-in program is so popular. Take your old phone in, and you’re immediately credited towards the purchase of a new iPhone.

With Apple Watch looming on the horizon, it seems Apple is clearing room from retail stores to make room for their own wearable. In your local Apple Store, you will no longer find most Jawbone products or the Nike Fuelband.
