It’s hard to believe Apple was started out of a garage in California just over 40 years ago. Today, Apple is worth hundreds of billions of dollars and has over 500 stores in 24 countries around the world.

Apple stores weren’t even a “thing” until 2001. That year, late cofounder Steve Jobs hired Ron Johnson, the former CEO of JCPenney, to help Apple open its first two physical stores in Glendale, California, and Tysons Corner, Virginia.

Apple stores were a massive hit. Apple became the fastest retailer in history to reach $1 billion in annual sales, making all of that money in its first three years of operation. Eighteen years later, Apple’s retail presence is a global powerhouse.

To understand Apple’s global footprint, it really helps to see it for yourself.

Below, we’ve collected the photos and locations of every single Apple store on the planet. Some fun facts we learned while compiling this information:

Apple has 53 stores in California alone. That’s more than 16 countries on this list — Austria (1), Belgium(1), Brazil (2), Hong Kong (6), Mexico (1), Macao (2), Netherlands (3), South Korea (1), Sweden (3), Switzerland (4), Taiwan (1), Thailand (1), Turkey (2), the United Arab Emirates (3), Japan (8), and Spain (11) — combined.

Nine US states only have one Apple store: Nebraska, Delaware, Idaho, Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, New Mexico, and Washington D.C.

There are six states in the US with no Apple stores at all: Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

Apple has a store called South Park, but it’s not in Colorado. It’s in North Carolina.

Apple currently has 504 stores in operation. We’ll be updating this list over time, as new stores open and old stores close down. We’ve also taken care to mention if a store is temporarily closed for renovations.
