Apple Launches Flagship Experience Store in Lyari, Karachi

In a development that’s sure to have techies and Apple fans in Karachi jumping with joy, Apple has decided to expand its global presence by opening an Apple Store in Lyari, Karachi.

According to an unnamed Apple representative:

Lyari seems like a perfect fit to give the Apple brand a run for its money. Its with keeping with our ‘Think Different’ philosophy of doing things. We are committed to serve the needs of our customers in a way that’s fresh and unexpectedly exciting in Karachi.

Since Apple Stores are renowned for their iconic design architecture, Apple hired the very best to design its flagship store in the Lyari neighborhood. Keeping in mind the tumultuous nature of the location, Apple’s engineers have come up with an advanced Sapphire glass variant that’s invulnerable to bullets and burning tyres alike. They even published figures about how much heat and kinetic force their new glass structure can withstand.

Jonny Ive, due to safety issues, video-conferenced at launch time, when the Store opened its doors to eager Karachittes from all over the city. He remarked how Pakistan from the newspapers was very much different from the Pakistani visitors who thronged the Apple Store.

There was not an empty kiosk to be seen, an indication of how popular Apple products were with the average Karachitte. Jonny vowed to open the next Apple Store in KP province, since he believes in ‘tabdeeli’ as well.

The Apple Store had all the latest Macs and iDevices. All the iPhone and iPad models were held back by a sturdy latch. Even the Apple Watch made it there.

According to another Apple representative, even though majority of Pakistanis aren’t used to the Mac OS, they have ensured that the desktops and laptops on display are running a BootCamp installation of Windows. He further more added that Mac OSX is the primary operating system on Macs though since Macs are going to take over the world today. Like the iPhone. Or the iPod. Or anything else for the matter.

All in all, April 1st 2015 marks a turning point in Apple’s business expansion strategy in the subcontinent.

Disclaimer: This is an April Fool’s joke. Please don’t head over to Lyari with a 100k in your pocket to buy the new Macbook Air.
