iSick: Apple Closes All NYC Stores Because of COVID, No Re-Opening Announced


Apple has closed all its stores in New York City because of COVID. There’s no date given for re-opening.

“We regularly monitor conditions and we will adjust our health measures to support the well-being of customers and employees,” the company said in a statement Monday. “We remain committed to a comprehensive approach for our teams that combines regular testing with daily health checks, employee and customer masking, deep cleaning and paid sick leave.”

Here are the stores. You can still order online or go to the suburbs. Apple sent reviewers AirPods this week, version 3. I am not much of an Apple customer, but I wanted to give these a try. I had to order for $10 a pair of white plastic ear hooks so they didn’t fall out of my ears. But even paired with a Samsung S21, the AirPods are pretty great. The sound is rich and detailed in ways I didn’t expect. So, thanks, Apple.
