Long queues outside MBS Apple store at noon
On Thursday (10 Sep), the MBS Apple Store officially opened its doors to the public.
That is, only for those who were quick enough to snag an appointment time slot.

According to TODAY, the public was also told to limit their visits to 15 minutes.

If you did not manage to book a time slot, not to worry, from tomorrow (11 Sep) onwards, the MBS Apple store will be allowing walk-in visitors.
