Apple has a reputation for maintaining a tight grip on the sales and distribution of its goods. Over 500 directly run stores are run by the corporation globally. Consumers in India previously had to purchase iPhones, iPads, and Macs from resellers, online, or while travelling abroad.

Establishing a presence in India enables companies like Apple to reach a larger audience of consumers.
