Amazon is now going to expand upon the number of Apple products it sells across the globe. Amazon will be selling Apple’s latest products like the iPhone XS, iPhone XR, the Apple Watch Series 4, iPad Pro, and Beats headphones. This deal applies across the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan, and India, according to CNET. These new products will be added to Amazon in the next few weeks.
Just Apple-authorized resellers will be able to sell these products on Amazon. Previously, Amazon sold older Apple products through a third-party marketplace. “Amazon is constantly working to enhance the customer experience, and one of the ways we do this is by increasing selection of the products we know customers want,” said an Amazon spokesperson. “We look forward to expanding our assortment of Apple and Beats products globally.”
Through this agreement, customers will see a wider range of Apple products at standard retail prices. This deal is coming together when Amazon’s retail sales spike throughout the holiday season. And Apple will have the benefit of driving unit sales with the largest Internet retailer. CNET also pointed out that this agreement does not impact Amazon’s certified refurbished electronics program called Renewed.
“We’re working with Amazon to improve the experience for Apple customers on their site,” added Apple spokesperson Nick Leahy via CNET. “And we look forward to those customers having another great way to buy iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac and more.”
It’s worth mentioning that the Apple HomePod speaker is not going to be available through Amazon. Amazon does not sell the Google Home speaker devices either. The HomePod and Google Home compete against Amazon’s Echo devices.
