‘New India’ : Apple opens 2nd retail store in India, in the capital city of New Delhi, bets big on PM Modi’s visions

Apple opened its second retail store in India in the capital city of New Delhi on April 20, 2023 after opening the first-ever store in Mumbai on April 18. The store, situated in Select City Walk mall in Saket saw heaps of Apple fans lining outside to get the first peek.

Apple CEO Tim Cook, along with Deirdre O’Brien, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail + People, inaugurated the retail store. In a Tweet, Cook called it an “incredible reception” while thanking Delhi.

While the Delhi store is smaller than the 20,000 square feet two-level store in Mumbai, it still marks the city’s first retail Apple store, and the country’s second.

Here’s the first peek into Apple Saket

This trip is big on business for Tim Cook, who also met Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his time in Delhi. Apple is currently looking at ways to expand its manufacturing footprint in India. Taiwanese contractors Foxconn and Wistron have already begun assembling iPhones in the country.


Some time in the near-future, Apple could also assemble iPads and AirPods in India.

Even though Apple is the world’s second-biggest smartphone maker, only behind Samsung, it only has a 6% market share in India owing to its expensive range of devices. As companies like Apple look at alternatives to China for setting up their manufacturing plants, India and Vietnam emerge as the top two places of choice. IgMp
