Like a traditional jewelry store, Apple will outfit its official retail stores with safes to house the more expensive, gold Edition variants of the upcoming Apple Watch, according to sources. The safes will likely be used to carry both to-be-sold inventory as well as to store demo units from the show floor overnight. The custom-designed safes will be outfitted with Apple Watch MagSafe chargers in order to keep the demo units charged up and ready to go for the next day of business. Apple has already begun installing the safes in some stores ahead of the Apple Watchs expected release April
Sources also say that Apple is getting ready to re-organize Apple Store shelving areas to make room for Apple Watch display tables. Apple is also working on ways to demonstrate the Apple Watch to customers. It is likely that prospective buyers will be able to try on Apple Watches inside of the store and play around with different band material and color options.
