Amazon to begin selling latest Apple devices

Many online platforms have resold Apple products in varying quantities and qualities, but this is the first time where Apple has reached out to Amazon to standardize its offerings.

Sellers found out about the change Friday morning in a letter from Amazon, obtained by CNN Business. Buyers can now expect exciting deals, discounts and offers that Amazon is largely known for.

Apple will begin selling its iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch directly on Amazon's websites in India and other worldwide markets as part of a global deal struck by the two technology titans. They have until January 4, 2019 to sell their existing products before Amazon removes all of their listings. They can continue to sell Apple products after becoming Apple authorized resellers. For Amazon, it gives the firm the ability to list popular Apple devices during the upcoming holiday shopping season.

Apple also noted that if the iPhone X owner has already replaced the screen prior to the replacement programme, he/she is entitled to get a refund.

Some brief items of note worth mentioning include the fact that if you bring in an iPhone X with a cracked display, Apple notes that the issue "will need to be resolved prior to the service" and that there "may be a cost associated with the additional fix".

Apple declared in a statement, "We're working with Amazon to improve the experience for Apple customers on their site and we look forward to those customers having another great way to buy iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac and more". Select devices, like the HomePod won't be available on Amazon, because it directly competes with Amazon's Echo lineup.

This could wind up being a big win for Apple, since using Amazon as an official channel for sales puts its devices in front of a ton of people.

Amazon dominates online retail in the United States, dwarfing even its closest competitors.
