During my first visit to Dubai, I had some trouble locating the Apple stores for buying an iPhone as asked my friend. This post is going to be a guide for locating Apple stores in Dubai.
Oil, iPhones, Al-Habibi, etc. are the buzzwords we get to hear in our friend circle, everytime “Dubai” is heard. There’s a tragic history in the making of the Arab Emirates. One must have seen how the indigenous people of that people struggle to obtain water from the deep trenches in a Nat Geo documentary.
Anyways, this guide will help you navigate to a nearby official Apple store or an authorized reseller to buy a genuine iPhone. Before we begin, let’s understand the demographics of Dubai.
Dubai is a global city (also known as Emirates), similarly, Abu-Dhabi is another emirates (Capital City). Now these two emirates along with other 5 emirates (Ajman, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm al-Quwain), forms a country – United Arab Emirates. Dubai & Abu-Dhabi are the two major global city which attracts a lot of tourism, knowledge exchange, business, institutions, etc. Our Apple store quest will be around these two cities only.
