Apple is the biggest tech company in the world, and it is known for making iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, and more such gadgets. However, with steep pricing and questionable after sales service, it hasn't been able to establish itself in the Indian market, where it has just 1% share in the smartphone market.
A report by Bloomberg suggests Apple is finally looking to open up its first retail store in India, with plans to start the setting up procedure a few weeks from now.
The tech giant is currently scoping upscale locations in Mumbai has will reportedly come to a decision in the next few days. It is looking to set up a posh retail similar to the ones Fifth Avenue in New York, Regent Street in London or the Champs-Elysees in Paris.
Up until now, Apple has been prohibited from opening up stores in India because it doesn't meet the local sourcing requirements. However, with the recent shift of manufacturing to India, it seems that eligibility has been secured.
This does come as good news for Apple fans, who will now be able to get after-sales service done from the company directly. It could also suggest cut in prices for iPhone models, however nothing is confirmed.
