Apple is extending its retail store closures in China due to the coronavirus outbreak, even as it worked towards opening its corporate offices and contact centres, the iPhone maker said on Friday.

The company earlier this month said it would shut all of its official stores and corporate offices in mainland China until Feb.9 due to the outbreak.

"We are working toward re-opening our corporate offices and contact centres the week of February 10, and we are making preparations to reopen our retail store," the company said in a statement.

"We will continue to update our customers as opening dates are finalised."

Apple remains heavily reliant on China both for smartphone sales as well as for its supply chain and manufacturing.
