Apple will launch its first online store in India on Sep. 23, the iPhone maker said on Friday, coinciding with the festive season during which retail sales are expected to pick up after an unprecedented decline in demand due to a coronavirus-induced lockdown.

“We know how important it is for our customers to stay in touch with those they love and the world around them. We can’t wait to connect with our customers and expand support in India with the Apple Store online on Sep. 23,” Apple CEO Tim Cook wrote on Twitter.EFE-EPA
