Apple on Thursday officially confirmed and announced it is planning to overhaul the interior of the iconic Tower Theatre building in Los Angeles, California (which was modeled after the Paris Opera House) and turn it into a flashy new flagship retail location at 802 S. Broadway.

Apple on Monday said it will make a corporate donation of $1 million towards relief efforts for the Southern California wildfires.
Apple was added to the list of 29 other companies, including Tesla, Google, Ford and Mercedes, that are testing or planning to test self-driving vehicles in the state of California, according to the California Department of Motor Vehicles's (DMV) website Friday.
The permit allows Apple to test vehicles in autonomous mode on public roads.
It's unclear if Apple sought to obtain a permit because it wanted to test-drive its own autonomous vehicles or if the company was simply looking to experiment with the rumored autonomous driving features in a future CarPlay version.
