BENGALURU: Apple Inc is set to open its first official retail store in India’s financial hub of Mumbai, the iPhone maker said on Wednesday.

The Cupertino, California-based company launched an online retail store in India in 2020. Its 2021 plans for the launch of an offline retail store in the country were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Apple products have been sold in India for years on ecommerce platforms such as Amazon.com Inc and Walmart Inc’s Flipkart as well as through resellers.

Eyes on Apple to join quest for the metaverse

India is the world’s second-largest smartphone market, with nearly 700 million smartphone users.

Some products in Apple’s catalogue, including iPhones, are assembled in India by Taiwanese contract electronics manufacturers Foxconn and Wistron Corp.

Around $9 billion worth of smartphones were exported from India between April 2022 and February this year, and iPhones accounted for more than 50% of that, according to the India Cellular and Electronics Association.

Apple also plans to assemble iPads and AirPods in India.

At the same time, Pakistanis are finding it difficult to even imagine eating an apple (fruit). Many have forgot what apple fruit tastes like. They are fixated on getting flour to save them and their 10 kids from starving.

@Tulukan Mairandi, ease up on the triumphalism buddy. It does not make us look good. And remember, it took decades to get where we are in India. But it’s pretty easy and quick to mess it up too.
