Customers can now head to the retail stores and try on the devices without booking it, first.
Consumers who are interested in checking out the Apple Watch in retail stores without having to make an appointment are finally able to do so now that the appointments requirement has been lifted.
This makes it possible for shoppers to simply walk in to an Apple Store without booking an appointment in advance.
The tech giant wants customers to now be able to simply walk into the stores at their next convenience and give the Apple Watch a try, without having to go through the additional effort and scheduling involved in making an appointment and keeping it. This smartwatch first started selling in retail stores in the United States in April. However, since that time, the company had required shoppers to schedule a time in which they could come by one of the stores in order to try out the product and potentially purchase one. However, the appointments are now becoming an optional part of the experience in order to further streamline it and add convenience to the opportunity to shop for this product.
The appointments for the Apple Watch had previously required shoppers to use an Apple ID and choose a time.
That said, the Apple store is breaking away from that necessity. While it is still possible for shoppers to schedule those appointments if that is how they wish to shop for the device, the company has now confirmed that the policy has changed and these appointments are no longer compulsory.
Some shoppers have previously reported that, depending on the Apple Store location, there wasn’t necessarily a strict enforcement of the appointment making process for the smartwatches, this change in policy certainly indicates that Apple is seeking to make it easier for shoppers to be able to check out its wearable technology in person and then actually buy what they like.
So far, the response from fans of the brand has been a positive one on social media and in online comments, as removing the appointments for the Apple Watch makes the shopping process a much less complicated and fussy one, and makes it possible for people to simply try out the product and potentially buy it at the time that is best suited to their lives and schedules, even if that includes dropping by the shop on a whim.
