According to the poll conducted by analyst Brian White of Cantor Fitzgerald, 73% out of 106 early iPad Air buyers he interviewed at Apple Stores in New York City, were upgrading from older tablet models. Only 27% were new to Apple’s iPad.
iPad Air is now available for all those who live in the USA. What’s interesting is that all the models can be picked up directly from the store, at least for now. Looks like the first batch of the devices won’t be sold out immediately, like in Hong-Kong yesterday, but its Apple, anything can happen.
According to the latest 9to5mac report, Apple will open its first retail store in Brazil next year - in February or March. The store is expected to be situated in Rio de Janeiro since precisely this location was officially confirmed in November of 2012.
C Spire Wireless and Bluegrass Cellular - U.S. biggest regional wireless carriers - announced that Apple’s new iPad Air will become available on their networks very soon.

Localytics has published a new report that claims San Francisco to be the best selling location for the iPhone 5s while in general the gap between iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c sales is dwindling.
After close to one week of sales, we found that, overall, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco held the largest market share in the U.S. for iPhone 5s and 5c activations. This is to be expected given the size of their populations. However the real surprise was that San Francisco came in third. Considering San Francisco is actually the 11th largest market in the U.S., its status as a technology haven also, clearly, translates to a culture of early adoption.
We then looked at the distribution of the iPhone 5s and 5c for each of the cities. Again, San Francisco stood out, showing the strongest preference for the 5s over the 5c (85% vs. 15%) among the top 12 major U.S. cities. Philadelphia showed the lowest preference with 72%.
Apple Store in New York gathered the biggest crowd ever seen before this Friday. On the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c launch day there were so many people willing to buy these devices, that the gold version of the Apple’s new flagship was sold out in a flash!

According to New York Post, Apple is negotiating a new retail store to be opened in the new World Trade Center shopping mall.
The report claims that Westfield, the company in control of all the retail space at the WTC, has found retailers for 90% of the first sites to open. This includes around 360,000 square feet in the Transportation Hub Oculus and in the lower levels of Larry Silverstein’s office towers two and three.
Westfield is said to have signed a lease with Victoria’s Secret — and is said to be close to deals with dozens of retailers, including Apple, J. Lindberg, Tory Burch, Theory, Michael Kors, Swatch and Abercrombie & Fitch, as well as several glamorous international brands.
The three towers were designed by architects Foster + Partners. They are currently working on Apple’s new California headquarters and will also be designing the future San Francisco 2 retail store.
The launch dates for Apple iPhones is September 20 with pre-orders starting September 13. We have recently found out that the iPhone 5S will not be available for pre-order.

Apple stll has not found the head of Retail department, although the sales of Cupertino company are dropping for the first time in a 4-year period.
Apple's search for a replacement, handled by recruiters Egon Zehnder International, has gone slowly, people familiar with the matter said, and the company has yet to settle on a finalist after interviewing several external candidates. Among those interviewed but rejected as a poor fit were wireless and telecommunications-industry executives, one such person said. A CEO of a privately held retailer in France spurned Apple's overtures, believing it would be hard to change Apple's culture as an outsider, another person said.
Now Apple has tuned from searching inside the company to outside, as no current candidate is suitable for the post. After the firing of previous Retail sales John Browett, CEO Tim Cook is handling the retail responsibilities. It was Browett's idea to focus Apple's retail stores on sales and cost cutting rather than on customer service. As a result, the employees were upset as well as the customers, whose satisfaction is declining gradually. The idea seemed unreasonable and John Browett left the post after 6 months.
