Apple says it will launch its first online store in India next week, as it seeks to increase sales in one of the world’s fastest-growing smartphone markets

NEW DELHI — Apple announced Friday that it will launch its first online store in India next week, as it seeks to increase sales in one of the world’s fastest-growing smartphone markets.

The company at present uses third-party online and offline retailers to sell its products in the country.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a tweet that the company “can’t wait to connect with our customers and expand support in India.”

The Sept. 23 launch comes ahead of India’s major Hindu festival season beginning next month.

With a nearly 1.4 billion people, including millions of new Internet users every month, India has become a key focus of tech giants over the last few years.

Apple assembles some smartphones at Foxconn and Wistron’s plants in two southern Indian states.
