Apple plans to expand ‘Personal Pickup’ internationally

Apple appears to be planning to roll out its “Personal Pickup” service internationally, according to a new report from MacRumors. The report notes that Apple employees in Australia, France, the United Kingdom, and other countries are currently undergoing training for a wider launch of the service, which allows customers to place an online order that can then be picked up at any Apple Retail Store within an hour. The service launched exclusively in the U.S. back in 2011, and it appears the international rollout could now come as early as November, perhaps in time for the launch of the iPad Pro.
