The reason apple has tie up with Flipkart ahead of launch is that apple does not have license to sell iphones directly in india, neither they are interested in getting one. In USA, people directly buy iPhones from Apple website. Apple does not need distributor or sellers, but they can sell it directly.

But in india, they have distributor network, and apple sells iPhone via authorised dealers. But problem with this style of selling is that price cannot be stable.  But after partnering with Flipkart, buyers can expect good discounts from flipkart which will also help flipkart to kill competition with amazon and paytm.

Flipkart has announced that they will start supplying new iPhones from 7th October evening. Customers will start receiving new iPhones from 7th October onwards only. Apart from iPhone, Flipkart will sell iPads and other earpods like accessories too which they will sell on discount price.

Apart from Flipkart, apple has tie up with Infibeam, which is leading online portal of india. All the portals of india has started taking pre-orders for flipkart. As apple is going to launch Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus on 7th October, 2016.

Apple has taken many loss after not partnering with any portal. Because of that base iphone 6S model which was priced at Rs.63,000 by apple,was sold by online portals at Rs.45,000/-. To restrict the discounts, apple has now given single inventory window in india.
