On the other hand, the Apple Saket is situated inside the premises of Select CITYWALK District Centre in Saket, New Delhi, and features artwork inspired by Indian palaces. The landing pages for both stores on the company website celebrate their opening with special wallpapers for iPhone, iPad, and Mac and curated playlists featuring “sounds of Mumbai” and “songs from New Delhi’s past and present.”
Apple India: Apple’s first physical opening in new Delhi India April 18
The opening of these physical stores in India is a significant expansion for Apple, which has seen record sales of iPhones in the country. In 2022, the market share of iPhones in India reached 5.5%, representing an 11% year-over-year growth. Apple Stores are the company’s flagship stores spread across different countries, allowing direct sales of Apple products such as the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Watch.
According to an Economic Times report, Apple’s retail chief Deirdre O’Brien will be present for the inauguration of the stores. However, some other reports have claimed that Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, may also visit India to represent the company’s doubled-down efforts for what may emerge as one of its biggest manufacturing hubs in the world. Over the past few months, Apple has shifted most of the production of its marquee product, the iPhone, to India as it looks to minimize manufacturing in China.
Apple’s decision to expand its presence in India is a testament to the country’s growing importance as a market for the company. With the opening of these two physical stores, Apple is looking to offer its customers in India exceptional service and experiences while browsing and buying its products. The future certainly looks bright for Apple in India, and we can’t wait to see what the company has in store for us next.
