It’s been years, for purchasing Apple products, especially iPhone, we have been relying on e-commerce websites or third-party authorized resellers. Over the years, we have also heard that Apple might open its stores in India, but that did not happen so far.
A few days ago, Bloomberg reported that the Cupertino giant is going to open its official online store in September in the country. TechCrunch also backed the report, as they said the brand might open the stores in Q3 2020 in India.

According to Indian regulations and laws, Apple needs to source 30% of its components from the country to get the first party sales authorization for the Indian market. At present, the company is manufacturing iPhone SE, iPhone 11, and other models at its Indian plants. Also, Apple is about to start manufacturing of iPhone 12 as well in Bengaluru, India.
As per the experts on the subject matter, Bloomberg reported that Apple’s first retail store would be in Mumbai and ready by 2021. Apart from the primary location, the giant has also finalized the second store location near Minsk Square in Bengaluru.
The many Apple users in India have welcomed the news, and the beginning of the official retail stores will be quite helpful and authentic. Furthermore, the Apple stores will not only provide a range of products and varieties but also better services to the customers.
