Apple will reportedly announce its first exclusive online store in India next month. According to a report by Bloomberg News, this exclusive online store will start to sell Apple products by Diwali. Apple currently sells iPhones, Mac and other accessories online via Amazon and Flipkart. The company will most likely continue to sell its products through its existing partners as well.
Reuters in its report said that Apple CEO Tim Cook had said earlier this year that Apple would open its first Indian retail store in 2021. While the first physical store is expected to come up in Mumbai, Apple is reportedly gearing up to launch another in Bengaluru.
In an interview earlier, Cook said that the company got special approval as the government of India wanted Apple to work with a local partner. “We wouldn’t be a very good partner in retail. We like to do things our way,” Cook said. He had also confirmed earlier that in 2020 Apple will get its online store ready.
Reports claim that Apple had plans to launch its online store earlier this year but it had to delay its plans due to COVID-19.
Meanwhile, the company will be making iPhone 11, its most popular new iPhone in the country. Apple is making its flagship iPhone 11 at Foxconn plant near Chennai. This is for the first time that Apple is making a top-of-the-line iPhone in India.
Talking about retail stores, Apple is gearing up to launch its third store in Singapore. The upcoming store, dubbed as Apple Marina Bay Sands, will be on Singapore’s waterfront near Marina Bay Sands. The store looks unique and at a glance appears like a giant ball floating on water. It is the first Apple store to have a spherical design and it is placed on water making it look like it’s floating.
