A Look at Different Apple Stores and HomeKit Products in the Asia Pacific Region
Apple Stores used to be only in the largest cities in China and Japan but lately they have been spreading to other cities like Singapore and Taipei which had to deal with third party Apple retailers for many years.
The new Apple Store in Taipei is one of the newest stores in Asia and based in Taipei 101, the tallest skyscraper in Taiwan.
The Taipei Apple Store is beautiful and zen enough to even attract Buddhist monks.
Apple HomeKit products seen in Taipei include the D-Link Omna 180 Cam HD Camera and Philips Hue (no local Taiwan made HomeKit products were seen).
The Apple Store in the Shanghai IFC Mall area is one of the oldest ones in China and also has an impeccable view of the city's famous sites. Click here to see what HomeKit products are sold in this store.
In Perth, Australia, the Apple Store is located downtown in a historical building.
The Perth Apple Store has a nice HomeKit display area and includes many of the same HomeKit products found in US retail stores including the D-Link Omna 180 Cam HD Camera, Elgato Eve Motion Wireless Motion Sensor, Elgato Eve Room Sensor, Elgato Eve Door & Window Wireless Contact Sensor, and Philips Hue.
There are also quite a lot of drones and smart toys being sold in the store as well as the typical USB Type-C and Thunderbolt storage drives from G-Tech, LaCie, and Promise brands.
