The crown prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan paid a visit to the new Apple store in Dubai Mall as its first customer upon its opening on Thursday, reported local media.

Pictures showing the royal’s visit to the new two-storey shop have been circulating on social media sites.

Sheikh Hamdan, dressed in national white dress, was spotted by fans as he was being given a tour of the shop by the Apple store team.


The third Apple store in the UAE, following one in Mall of the Emirates and Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi, is believed to be the largest of its kind in the region.

It reportedly has a 185-foot curved glass façade and balcony featuring solar wings designed to keep the store cool during the day only to open at night and reveal a view of the Dubai Fountain.

Shaikh Hamadan has often shown enthusiasm for the tech brand on his official Instagram account, where he shares pictures taken through his iPhone to his 5.3m followers.
