Discussions have been going on in India about the Apple store since time. But till now there is not a single Apple Store in India. However, now the company is seen preparing to open an online apple store in India.
According to a Bloomberg report, Apple will open an online store for the first time in India, where only Apple products will be sold. Currently, the company sells its products on e-commerce website Amazon, Flipkart and Paytm Mall in India.
It is being told that this online store of Apple will be launched during the festive season. The company’s online store can be started in the next month, i.e. mid or late September.
Tech Crunch has said in a report that Apple’s online store can be launched in India in the third quarter of 2020.
Although offline Apple store will not come to India at present, in 2021, the company can open offline stores. The first Apple store will be opened in Mumbai and after this, the second Apple store can be opened in Bangalore.
Since Apple’s market share in India is quite low, but India is a big market for the company. Apple has its fanbase, but due to the higher price, the market share is much lower than other companies.
To increase market share in India, the company has also started assembling some of its iPhone models in India. Recently, the iPhone SE 2020 has been launched, which is the company’s low-cost smartphone.
