Apple’s Mumbai store is in the Mukesh Ambani-owned Jio World Drive Mall in the Branda Kurla Complex. The company has earlier been selling its products in the country through resellers or e-commerce websites like Amazon. Assembling of iPhones in India is done by Apple’s three contract manufacturers – Foxconn, Wistron and Pegatron. The company also plans to start assembling iPad and AirPod in the country.
India is an important market for Apple. The company’s sales have reached a high level in the country. Apart from this, the company has also made preparations to increase the production of iPhone in India. Apple launched its first online store in the world’s second largest smartphone market about three years ago. In February, Apple overtook Xiaomi to become the second largest smartphone company in Asia. Asia is very important for smartphone companies as it has two big smartphone markets, India and China. There are a large number of companies selling smartphones in Asia.
