Since Apple cannot sell iPhones and other merchandise directly in India yet, it has to use third-party retailers in order to do business here. On October 7, 2016 it will be launching the latest iPhone 7 in India. It has already partnered with the online retailer Infibeam. This BGR update says that Apple is also partnering with Flipkart to sell iPhone 7 smartphones in India from October 7 onwards. This means you will be able to purchase iPhone 7, if you want to, from Flipkart.
Although previously also people have been able to purchase various versions of iPhones from Flipkart but then Flipkart was sourcing the iPhones from third-party vendors. In the case of iPhone 7 smartphones, Flipkart will be sourcing the devices straight from Apple. As you can see, Flipkart has already created a dedicated section iPhone 7 on its website.
Flipkart won’t just be selling the iPhone 7 devices; it’s becoming sort of an official reseller for Apple. It may be selling all Apple products including iPhones, iPads and Mac PCs and laptops. Infibeam on the other hand, will just be selling the iPhone 7 smartphones.
