India will finally get its first ever Apple online store next week

Apple to launch online store in India on September 23

Apple on Friday announced that the American technology giant will launch its online store in India on September 23. For the online market, Amazon and Flipkart are usually the ones selling Apple products.

An application to open Apple Stores in India in 2016 was reportedly rebuffed because of a rule that states foreign retailers must source 30pc of their products locally.

With this move, Apple plans to provide customers with the same experience found in Apple Store locations around the world, delivered by online team members who are ready to offer their expertise.

Apple online store in India is a new upcoming prospect.

"We're proud to be expanding in India and want to do all we can to support our customers and their communities", said Deirdre O'Brien, Apple's senior vice president of Retail + People in a prepared statement. The online store will consist of Apple Specialists that will help you choose the right product. "The Online Store will ensure seamless, safe and contactless delivery of our products in these Covid times as safety of staff and customers is our topmost priority". This extends your warranty with up to 2 years of technical support and accidental damage cover.

Free no-contact delivery across the country. For the approaching festive season, the customers will also get signature gift wrap and personalized engraving for selected pieces. The languages available at Apple online store will be English and Hindi.

Additionally, students can take advantage of special pricing on Mac and iPad products, as well as receive discounts on accessories and AppleCare+, Apple said. It will be interesting to see what kind of response Apple India online store will get initially.

Apple Store Online will have multiple payment modes, including an option to pay though debit and credit cards.

For instance, customers in India will now able to trade-in their old eligible phones for iPhones. This means orders that do not require a signature will be left at the customer's door, while those that do replace signatures with verbal confirmation. Therefore, you can now add more memory, additional storage or an extra-powerful graphics card to build a Mac that suit your needs. Engraving of emoji or text in English, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu will be available for AirPods, and English engraving will be available for iPad and Apple Pencil. But with the opening of the Apple India online store, that is about to change.
