In March, Apple announced that all Apple stores outside Greater China will be closed starting March 14 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonetheless, on April 16, the company reopened its only store in South Korea, located in the Gangnam district of Seoul.

Last Thursday, at the earnings call covering the second fiscal quarter of 2020, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that Apple is preparing to reopen stores in Austria and Australia within one to two weeks, which should mean that more and more Apple Stores would start to welcome customers soon in the future.

Cook also said that "just a few" stores will be reopened in the United States beginning in May. Until reopening stores, Apple will "look at the data" and make decisions on "city by city, county by county" while deciding whether to reopen stores.
