Apple Stores in India emerge as global high performers as sales fly: Report

Apr 22, 2024 02:10 PM IST

A year after being inaugurated by CEO Tim Cook, it has been revealed that Apple Stores have performed exceedingly well, says a report.

Apple has been raising its game in India ever since it faced a host of negative issues in its top manufacturing base, which is China, during the Covid-19 pandemic. To make sure disruptions no longer affected its manufacturing schedules, Apple looked to diversify and since then it has built a massive base in India and elsewhere too. Considering that sales of iPhones too have dropped in a major way in China, the diversification drive has acquired even greater urgency. While that is the case regarding the manufacturing arena, Apple has gone ahead and even opened physical stores in India last year - two of them actually, and that too in plush locations in New Delhi and Mumbai.
