Cupertino-based tech giant, Apple, has announced that it will be launching its first online store in India on September 23. The information was revealed by the company through various channels, with the company's CEO, Tim Cook, also taking to Twitter to share this news with the world.
Apple has confirmed that the store will offer its entire range of products, and also bring customer support to buyers. While Apple had been selling its products online in India through third-party players such as Flipkart and Amazon, it will now for the first time be able to sell them directly to buyers through its own online store.
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! https://t.co/UjR31jzEaY— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) September 18, 2020
As has been reported, the store will offer more than just products online, but also access to Apple Specialists who can guide users in their purchases and provide support. Reports suggest Apple will also have customer support on board who will provide help in English and Hindi.
In a statement, Deirdre O'Brien, Apple's senior vice president of Retail + People said, "We're proud to be expanding in India and want to do all we can to support our customers and their communities...We know our users are relying on technology to stay connected, engage in learning, and tap into their creativity, and by bringing the Apple Store online to India, we are offering our customers the very best of Apple at this important time."
Apple has said that for the health and well-being of Apple's teams, customers, and communities, all orders from the Apple Store online will ship with contactless delivery. Orders that do not require a signature will be left at the customer's door, and those that do will need only a verbal confirmation from a safe distance instead of a written signature.
