Apple wants to sell pre-owned iPhones in India
Tech giant Apple has sought permission from the government to import pre-owned iPhones for sale in India, Parliament was informed on Friday.
"An application from Apple regarding import of certified pre-owned iPhones for sale in India and manufacturing certified pre-owned iPhones for sale in India has been received in the Ministry of Environment and Forests," Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said in a written reply to Rajya Sabha.
Prasad was replying to a question on whether any company has sought permission for refurbishing and selling used mobile phones in the country. The minister further said the government has not taken any decision on the matter. Apple is putting more energy in India to cash in on the booming smartphone market in the country.
