Apple is temporarily operating a restricted retail store during the national period of mourning ahead of the Queen’s state funeral.

The new iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro launch on Friday September 16th.

Normally, Apple fans would line up outside stores across the UK ahead of the opening – hoping to bag a new iPhone.

But on Friday 16 September UK shops will be open from 8am for new product reservations only.

That means there are no walk-in customers: if you don’t have an iPhone reserved, you can’t make a purchase.

Some small queues can form at Apple Stores, but these are for reservation customers only — and limited in time.

There will be limited Genius Bar services and no Today at Apple sessions.

However, you can still request a personal setup for your new iPhone.

These rules remain in place on Saturday 17th September and Sunday 18th September.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral will take place on Monday September 19 – and the Apple Stores will remain closed.

The date has been declared an official holiday by the government.

Businesses across the UK are to decide for themselves whether to remain open, remain closed or offer restricted services.

“This will allow individuals, businesses and other organizations to pay their respects and commemorate Her Majesty’s reign as they mark the final day of national mourning,” the UK government said in a statement.

“This bank holiday operates in the same way as any other bank holiday and there is no statutory entitlement to time off. Employers can include bank holidays in an employee’s vacation entitlement.

“The bank holiday takes place across the UK.”
