Apple (AAPL) is in the process of cutting hardware and software products from its retail stores to make room for other services, reports The Loop. According to unnamed sources, Apple is going to expand its personalized in-store setup service. Among the products that will no longer be displayed include printers, scanners, and possibly some hard drives. These peripherals, notes the Loop, will still be stocked in the store and available if a customer requests them.
According to the report, Apple is also getting rid of up to 32 game titles from its retail locations. That would reduce the number of games being displayed in the stores to around 8 per store.
Shares of Apple are currently lower on the session by $5.79, or 1.16%, trading at $354.35.
