Today, Apple has taken the wraps off of a version of its Apple Online Store for Turkey. Apple is promoting the new store with a large banner at the top of the site. The store is now being promoted on Apple’s homepage in Turkey, and it is also accessible at its direct link here.

This Apple Online Store for Turkey represents Apple’s first official sales presence in the country other than authorized resellers. Earlier this year, we noted that Apple is set to open up a large physical retail store in Turkey in 2014

Turkey is a crucial emerging market for Apple as the iPhone maker seeks to expand sales of its iPhones and iPads to more countries across the globe. Earlier this year, Apple opened up its first official sales presence in Russia with an Online Store, and the company plans to move into physical retail in South America with a Brazil store early next year.

The Turkey Apple Online Store, like the stores for other countries, offers free shipping for orders over a certain threshold. Notably, the store is selling Apple’s latest iPhones, the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, but it is not selling Apple’s latest iPads as of yet. Apple is quoting 5-7 day shipping times for the iPhones, while Mac shipping times range between 1-2 days, 1-3 days, and 4-5 days. The iPad 2 ships in Turkey in 1-3 days, while the first-generation iPad mini ships in 5-7 days.

The rest of the Apple Online Store for Turkey is typical of any Apple Online Store, offering various accessories and even some Apple Online Store exclusive products from third party manufactures. The Online Store is accompanied by phone sales support, but we have not spotted online chat support for Turkey as of yet.

    This language is like Yiddish, its colloquial and not the speech of the Turks. My European Ottoman Great-Grandparents would not recognise this Foreign dialect from Central Asia. Stop publishing Turkmen…it is a foul language without the refinement or legitimacy of Ottoman. We Ottoman Turks are blessed with an ancient history from the Central Anatolian Lakes Region. Not the Aral Sea Region, as the Islamist militant coup soviet installed dictatorship has decreed.
