This week, there has been growing speculation that Apple may finally be about to open its own retail store in the UAE. US-based tech giant Apple could be planning to open a flagship store in the UAE, according to recent job listings posted on its website.

MW-BR765_apple__20140102105732_MGThe company has advertised for 13 new positions in the UAE including business specialist, store leader, business manager and inventory specialist, among others.

With no indications as to when the store would open, previous hiring schedules indicate that February 2015 could see Apple opening its Dubai doors. Apple CEO Tim Cook even visited the UAE earlier this year, meeting with Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed, as well as a number of Apple resellers.
