Apple has updated its retail store page to indicate that its stores will be closing at 2:00 p.m. on June 29 to prepare for the iPhone launch. The page sports a graphic stating “The wait is almost over. iPhone. Coming Friday, June 29 at 6:00 p.m.” Underneath the graphic is the following message: “Apple retail stores will be closed on June 29 from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. to get ready for the premiere of iPhone. We’ll open the doors again at 6:00 p.m., when you can be one of the first to see, try, and buy the iPhone. Be sure to arrive early — iPhone is available on a first-come, first-served basis.”
