Apple is reportedly planning an online store in India

Apple is reportedly planning to launch official online store in India later this year. The tech giant will sell locally assembled iPhone SE and mobile accessories on its e-shop from Diwali onwards, The Economics Times reports, citing an unnamed Apple India official.

It’s believe that Apple's online store requires less supervision from central government, adds the International Business Times. Also, it doesn't fall under central government's FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) policy purview, as the company is selling devices, which are manufactured locally.

Apple has 490 retail stores in 20 countries and an online store available in 39 countries.
