Apple announced on Tuesday that its most famous Apple Store design feature will return late next year.

During its iPhone launch event, Apple's head of retail Angela Ahrendts said that Apple will rebuild its iconic glass cube on 5th Avenue in New York, which will open late next year.

In the meantime, there's still an Apple store at the 5th Avenue location, but it's in a temporary store, and the cube has been taken down. 

Here's what Apple says it will look like:
