Apple, the tech giant, is set to launch its first retail store in India this month. The store, located in the Jio World Drive Mall in Mumbai, will officially mark the company’s entry into the Indian market, which has been a long-awaited move for the tech giant.
According to reports, the Apple BKC store will be open to the public in April, and the company will open another store in Delhi very soon.
This comes after Apple announced that it had set an all-time revenue record for the Indian market in February of this year. “We set a quarterly revenue record and grew very strong double digits year over year, and so we feel very good about how we performed,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook.
Despite the pandemic, Apple has continued to grow in India. In the holiday quarter of 2022, the company sold 2 million iPhones in India, registering an 18% growth quarter-on-quarter for its flagship device. Additionally, the market share of iPhones in India reached 5.5% for 2022, an 11% growth year-on-year.
“That’s despite the headwinds that we talked about. India is a hugely exciting market for us and a major focus. We brought the online store there in 2020. We will soon bring Apple Retail there,” Cook added.
The move into the Indian market has been a long time coming for Apple, which has been working to establish a presence in the country for several years. In 2020, the company launched its online store in India, and now, with the opening of its first retail store, it is clear that the company is committed to expanding its reach in the Indian market.
With the growing popularity of Apple products in India, the company’s move into the Indian market is expected to be a major success, with the potential to drive significant growth and revenue for the tech giant in the years to come.
In conclusion, the launch of Apple’s first retail store in India is a significant step for the company as it expands its presence in one of the world’s fastest-growing smartphone markets. The move is expected to drive significant growth and revenue for Apple in India, and with plans for another store in New Delhi, it is clear that the company is committed to establishing a strong foothold in the Indian market.

Spotify CEO Calls Out Apple and Google for Unfair Play in Music Streaming
Spotify’s CEO Daniel Ek has spoken out against big tech companies like Apple and Google. He says they both control the music streaming market and also compete in it. This he feels is not fair.
Daniel Ek talked to the Financial Times about this. He said it’s like Apple and Google are the referees of a game but they are also playing in it. He thinks this is wrong and not good for other companies trying to compete.
He also said these big companies make their own rules. This can hurt other companies trying to do business. They also have a lot of control over how many people use the internet. Daniel Ek thinks this is too much power.
Because of all this, Daniel Ek is asking the UK government to make a new law. This law will make sure that if a company is in charge of a market it can’t also compete in that market. This law is called the Digital Markets Competition and Consumers Bill (DMCC). It is now being made.

Why the iPhone 15 Pro Series Back Glass Shatters More Easily Than the iPhone 14 Series
Jerry Rig Everything, a tech YouTuber with over 8 million subscribers, has recently made a durability test video of the iPhone 15 series. Firstly, he made a video on the iPhone 15 Pro Max. While doing the durability test of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, the entire back panel was shattered, as shown in the image below:
This is the second iPhone that failed the durability test; the first was the iPhone 6. Even after this, the iPhone works fine. But in the later part of that video, Zack also tried the same durability test on the iPhone 15 Pro. But the shocking part is that the iPhone 15 Pro passed the durability test. As its back panel won’t get shattered. As the iPhone 15 Pro doesn’t shatter in the durability test by Zack, it doesn’t mean that it is strong. In drop tests, both the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max back glasses got shattered.
Zack has also created another video in which he does a durability test on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. But as the iPhone 15 Pro and the iPhone 15 Plus, which are both made of aluminum, passed the durability test, they won’t be shattered. But we saw an Instagram reel in which we saw two iPhones, the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 15 Pro Max, opened by the creator. But if we take a look at the back panel listed below, we can spot the difference.
If we compare the back panels of both the iPhone 14 and iPhone 15 Pro Max, then we come to know that in the back panel of the iPhone 14, we have the metal back plate, but if we talk about the iPhone 15 Pro Max, then we have the metal back plate on the phone. The iPhone 15 and 15 Plus are also not shattered, as they have metal backplates in the back panels of these iPhones.
What do you think about the durability of the iPhone 15 Series? Also, do let us know in the comment box does your iPhone 15 Pro or iPhone 15 Pro Max got shattered.
