Apple Launched its First Online Store in India

Good news for iPhone lovers! Apple has finally decided to wave in India with the launch of its first official online store. The much-awaited online store was initiated on 23rd September in India. The US tech giant is adding zing to the last quarter of 2020 and satiating the needs & demands of iPhone users. According to Apple’s official blog post, it is bringing an expansive range of products and support for the world’s second-largest smartphone market.

Up until now, Apple depends on the third-party online and offline stores to sell its products in India. But with the recent announcement, Apple seems to itch its way to offer some premium features for Indian users too.

Here’s Tim Cook’s tweet about the recent move: “We know how important it is for our customers to stay in touch with those they love and the world around them. We can't wait to connect with our customers and expand support in India with the Apple Store online on September 23!”

As stated by one of the most acclaimed tech blogs; TechCrunch announced in January that the iPhone-maker was planning to launch its first official online store in India in the third-quarter of 2020. After a month, Apple CEO Tim Cook affirmed the turn of events, including that Apple will also launch its first physical store in the country next year. 

What will be offered at an online store?

On its official website, Apple also briefly stated financing options for its customers in India. The Cupertino-based tech giant has specific financing plans to offer discounts and freebies for students. The primary motive behind such plans is to enhance convenience and affordability for Apple products and accessories.

Beginning one month from now, it will also let users look at free online sessions on music and photography from proficient creatives. Also, if they wish, they can imprint emojis or text on their AirPods in a few Indian dialects.

The company stated that its online store will offer AppleCare+, which expands the warranty on its Apple’s hardware products by as long as two years.

In addition to the support services, they are also going to introduce a trade-in program to let buyers receive amazing discounts when they buy new iPhone models by returning the old variants. Last but not the least, customers will now be able to buy Mac with custom configurations. 

The launch of the online store will be a big move for Apple’s business in India, where about 99% of the market is directed by Android cell phones. The iPhone-producer has gotten noticeably more active and aggressive in India in recent years. In July, the organization’s contract manufacturing accomplice (Foxconn) started collecting the iPhone 11 in India. This was the first run through the organization that was locally amassing a recent generation iPhone model in the colleagues.

Gathering handsets in India empowers cell phone sellers — including Apple — to dodge the 20% import an obligation that the Indian government demands on imported electronic items. Bringing down the cost of Apple’s products is vital for Apple in India, which as of now sells a few of its services including Apple Music and TV+ at record-low cost across the country. Which, dare we say, is an amazing miracle.

The price of the iPhone 11 Pro Max is $1,487 in India, as compared to the $1,099 in the U.S. Furthermore, the AirPods Pro, which sells at $249 in the U.S., was made accessible in India at $341.
