It's been a long time coming, but Apple has finally launched an Apple Online Store in Turkey, making it possible for consumers in the country to purchase Macs, iDevices, and accessories online, directly from the Cupertino, Calif. company. The news comes following additional information concerning Turkey's first ever Apple Retail Store. As a reminder, Apple's retail presence is set to expand to Istanbul, and particularly the city's Zorlu Center (pictured below), at some point in early 2014. The new Apple Retail Store will be located between two designer label stores, and once launched, it'll mean Apple has retail locations in 15 different countries. Now, however, Cult of Mac has drawn attention to a brand new Apple Online Store for Turkey, which appears to have launched recently. All of Apple's new products are available save for the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display. These should arrive at some point in the near future, possibly with the second wave of Apple's iPad launch. As a reminder, the launch countries for Apple's iPad Air include:
The US, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, China (Wi-Fi models only), Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macao (Wi-Fi models only), Macedonia, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.The iPad mini with Retina display, however, is instead set to launch "later in November."
