Apple to increase staff in US retail locations for August and September
This report comes in addition to the news that Apple was recruiting additional staff for their retail stores in the UK as well. There are many things that go on this time of year that could lead to Apple’s desire to increase their retail workforce.
The one thing that many people will point to is that the release of the iPhone 5 is expected to fall sometime during the next two months. However, it is possible that this increase in staffing could be due to students going back to school soon. Moreover, the Apple iPod Touch is due for a refresh and if prior release dates are any indication we should see a new model surface in September.
Still, we can only speculate as to Apple’s reasoning behind their desire to increase staffing for a two month period. We are still a couple months away from the holiday sales season so that may be out of the question. Why do you think Apple is stocking up on retail employees? Tell us what you think in the comments below.

Im not an apple hater and I don't really like their products, but their stores are brilliant and really provide the illusion that they're the best...

They may or may not be the best but they make pretty damn good products. Having a pretty store won't do much if you don't have good things to sell inside.

yea even their stands at att and verizon stores make them look like the best phones. The Evo 4g and 3D didnt have a stand but they are better phones

Yes, to us we know, but for people who don't know much and want to buy a smartphone would generally think that the more proffesional one is the best..?

I like the fact that Apple has working products at their stores and they let you try them out.
