As an already saturated market for smartphones, where the smartphone penetration(more than 2.8 million smartphones sold this year-as per Gulf News) is one of the world’s highest, UAE still seems to be the right place for Apple to open its store. UAE also offers a unique logistical position from where Apple can easily tap neighboring countries. It has also been reported that the UAE Apple Store will be the LARGEST in the world.
