India is one of the most populous countries in the world, specifically the second most populous after China with 1.372 billion inhabitants. That is why it is logical that Apple wants to make a name for itself in the Indian market , and it tries to do so with tactics such as lowering the price of the iPhone XR and the Apple Music subscription.
In addition, Apple has invested a large sum of money to boost iPhone production in the country and to reduce its dependence on China. However, it may be that the push it needs to take off is to open Apple Store . Rumours are that the first one will arrive in 2020, and it seems that they have already chosen a location.

The media The Economic Times has learned, thanks to four people close to the issue, that the first Apple Store in India will be located in the shopping center of the Bandra Kurla complex. It seems that Apple has leased a space of more than 2,000 square meters spread over three floors . The first will be for experience, the second for sale and the third for support.

One of the people who has spoken with The Economic Times states that a US team from Apple is already in Mumbai designing the store, which is expected to open its doors in September 2020 . For the time being, the company is importing the furniture and other elements, and it will take about eight months to complete.
India’s largest Apple Retailer opened its largest store to date in Mumbai last August . With nearly 750 square meters spread over two floors, the official Apple Store will be far larger than it is today.
