Apple Retail Store Webpages Get An iOS 7 Makeover


Apple has updated the retail section of its website with a new look more closely resembling the design aesthetic of iOS 7.

As can be seen from the comparison above, where previously the page featured content boxes, borders, and gradients, the new version of the page employs plenty of whitespace and a thinner typeface.

The biggest change to the site’s navigation is, strangely, the removal of the “Make a Reservation” button which previously allowed users to easily made Genius Bar appointments. Instead, appointments can now be made by navigating to the Genius Bar page and clicking a link in the first paragraph.

To see how far Apple’s retail page has come since it was first opened in 2001, check out this page for some nostalgia about the days in which Apple only had two physical stores.
