Rabindra Dhungel, 28 august 2020. The company’s online store could launch next month, in mid-September. A report by TechCrunch states that Apple may launch an online store in India in the third quarter of 2020.
Right now, the offline Apple Store is unlikely to launch in India in 2020. But in 2021, the company may open offline stores. The first Apple store will open in Mumbai and then the second Apple store will open in Bangalore, the report said.
Apple’s market share in India is quite low, but India is a big market for the company. Apple has its own fanbase, but the market share is lower than other companies due to higher prices.
The company has also started assembling its iPhone models in India to increase its market share in India. The iPhone SE 2020 has just been launched, which is the company’s low cost smartphone.
