In case you haven’t heard, the Apple Watch is only available for purchase online…if you placed an order. No walk-ins at the Apple Store. No random shopping at the local Best Buy or Walmart. Apple.com seems to be the best bet to have secured one, and the company looks to keep it that way at least through May.
The news comes from an internal memo from Apple’s retail chief Angela Ahrendts, which was obtained by iGen.Fr (via MacRumors) and reads as follows:
“As we announced last week, due to high global interest combined with our initial supply, we are only taking orders online right now. I’ll have more updates as we get closer to in-store availability, purpose we expect this to continue through the month of May.”
This still doesn’t clarify if whether consumers will actually be able to purchase one come June. Until now, Apple Watch orders will remain exclusively online, or at least until the end of May.
