Apple's appointment system already ruled out camping out for the Apple Watch, but it doesn't look like there will be any way to cop in stores for a while. In a leaked memo Apple retail chief Angela Ahrendts told employees the Apple Watch won't be available in stores until June. Online orders, however, will continue.
"Due to high global interest combined with our initial supply, we are only taking orders online right now," the memo obtained by The Telegraph says. "I'll have more updates as we get closer to in-store availability, but we expect this to continue through the month of May."
The memo says going online only for the time being will allow Apple to get customers the watch they want as soon as possible. Don't expect this strategy to extend to other new products, though. Ahrendts says it's just the result of Apple's first entry into the wearable tech game.
