Apple’s official e-store in India. What changes for the industry?

Wow, there is some good news in 2020 in the tech industry. The festive season is around the corner and Apple has used this opportunity to launch an Exclusive Apple e-store in India. 

The tech giant will launch its official e-store in India on the 23rd of September. This is the first time the company is opening a first-party retail channel in the country. So far, Apple has sold products in India through e-commerce and offline partners.

So far, the retail stores are working as a third party and the products can’t be customized to your liking. Moreover, some products are often out of stock when there’s a delay in shipment. So, Apple products, the online e-store, will include its local contact center. Additionally, through the e-store, a customer will get the required support and services from Apple – a service that was lacking in the country.  

After the launch of the e-store, Apple lovers will be able to buy the products online and customize the products (laptops) according to their requirement. This will be a premium and elite experience for Indian Customers. There will be a choice to pay as per you wish (Netbanking, credit cards, EMI, etc) and additionally, students will benefit with the student discount.  

With the launch of the e-store, Apple will now have full control over its products in the Indian market, and the company will provide a full portfolio of the products, making it easily available to the buyers. Apart from the online store, customers can now get support from Apple experts, which wasn’t available until today.  

The company has also announced a dedicated education store for India. Most importantly, e-stores will be offering special pricing on Mac computers, iPad tablets, their accessories, and Apple’s premium support option, called AppleCare Plus.

“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,” said Deirdre O’Brien, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail + People, in a statement.

Now let us go and depth and know-how these Apple e-stores will make our Apple experience more wonderful.

Now you do not have to worry about payment mode. The company has come up with integrated UPI and cash on delivery (COD) payment options. So now, you can buy Apple products anytime and from anywhere.

Apart from customizing the product tech specs, you can also get a free laser engraving. Additionally, you can add a message to any new iPad, Air Pods, iPod touch, or Apple Pencil (2nd generation). This service is only available online and is not offered on refurbished products.

Finally, when you have selected your iPad or iPod touch on apple.com, you can enter up to two lines of text. As you type, the image will be displayed to you how your text will look like. And the best part – you may be able to make changes to the engraved text or cancel your item if online Order Status indicates that it has “Not yet shipped.”
