• Apple Looking to Expand 'Personal Pickup' Service Internationally



    It has been reported that Apple will be expanding its Personal Pickup Service internationally, hence the reason behind currently training retail employees in Australia, France, the United Kingdom, and more. For those who don’t know, the Personal Pickup Service lets consumers order from Apple’s online store or app and within the hour, can pick the product up at a retail location.

    According to sources, the Cupertino-based company is looking to launch the service internationally sometime this month, along with their newest iPad Pro tablet. However, it was noted that Apple may push their plans back with this international rollout to sometime at the end of this year instead. The dates are not yet confirmed as Apple did not make any official announcements.

    U.S. Apple stores began offering the Personal Pickup Service 4 years ago, back in 2011. Products applicable to this service include iPhones, Apple TVs, iPads, Apple Watches, and Macs. Those who use this feature will receive a text message or e-mail letting them know that their product is available to pick-up. In order to be able to pick up the item however, consumers will have to had a valid photo ID on them.

    Apple is really beginning to make many programs and services available internationally as they are expanding their physical presence worldwide. We think the company is working at a very fast pace, which means the company is probably doing very well.
