apple posts revenue in india despite slowdown

Apple, a US tech major, has posted record revenues in India during the March 2024 quarter. Even though the company's global revenues dipped 4% YoY, its business in India boomed. Declining iPhone sales (by 10% YoY) was the major reason for lower revenues. In India, Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, said that they saw double-digit growth during the March quarter.




Cook said, "As you know, as I’ve said before, I see it as an incredibly exciting market and it’s a major focus for us." Apple opened two company-owned flagship stores in India in 2023. The first store was opened in Mumbai at the Jio World Drive in BKC and the second one was opened in Saket, Delhi. Apple is expecting a big future in the Indian market, hence the investment in opening company-owned stores. Tim Cook had flown in to be a part of the inauguration process of the stores, signifying the importance of the Indian market.
