As promised, Apple Store Online is now finally live in India, providing customers with the ability to buy the company’s products directly from it, rather than through third-party sellers. Not only that; the best part of this store is that it will offer Apple fans the ability to trade-in their old products, opt for student discounts, and access first-party financing options. Direct customer support can also be taken advantage of through this online store.
Apple has said that the trade-in values for the products will be based on the condition, year of manufacture, and configuration of the devices being traded-in. Through the customer care program, Indians will be able to get in touch with Apple Specialists through call or chat for support on a particular product.
Apple Store Online’s student discounts will allow them to purchase MacBooks and iPads at specially discounted prices. They will also be able to take advantage of the AppleCare+ extended warranty program. The Cupertino giant has said that it will be arranging ‘Today at Apple’ free sessions led by local creative professionals focussing on photography and music.
Deirdre O’Brien, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail and People, had previously said, “We’re proud to be expanding in India and want to do all we can to support our customers and their communities. We know our users are relying on technology to stay connected, engage in learning, and tap into their creativity, and by bringing the Apple Store online to India, we are offering our customers the very best of Apple at this important time.”
You can now access the Apple Online Store here to purchase all the Apple products available in India in all their configurations.
