Apple has confirmed longstanding market rumours by announcing that it will open two stores in the UAE on October 29.
The stores will be located in Dubai’s Mall of the Emirates and Abu Dhabi’s Yas Mall, with grand openings planned for 4pm and 7pm local time respectively, the tech giant said in a statement.

Apple’s move has been expected for some time. Bloomberg reported in August that the US giant could be exempted from foreign ownership laws in the UAE, and could be allowed 100 percent ownership of its stores.
That report was later denied by a senior official from the MInistry of Economy.
