The giant tech company ‘Apple’ has reportedly planned to end its mask requirements at some of its retail stores in the United States.

On Thursday, the California-based company has told its employees about the recent changes made in its standard operating procedure (SOP’s) considering the decline in COVID-19 cases all across the US.

Earlier, in 2020 Apple closed all of its stores in the US amid rising coronavirus cases, and later it began to ease its mask requirements in July 2021. But now the company plans to completely end it as the vaccination rates in the US are increased to a greater extent.

Meanwhile, recently Apple had announced to bring a car crash detector in its iPhone and Apple watches. This new feature will automatically detect if the driver has faced an accident and will call 911 for help.

Moreover, the company had planned to roll out its new features next year along with some of its new products including a branded cloth to clean its devices for $19. Which according to the company can remove all the dirt from its products without damaging it. 

Demand for Apple’s cleaning cloth was through the roof, that in almost 3 days the product was almost sold out yet the estimated orders placed on the website were pushed to late November 2021.
