Apple and Amazon have had some controversial relationship in recent years, but the two tech behemoths recently decided to start a new partnership in trade names. According to a new report from CNET Apple products like iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch Series 4 will be available for purchase on Amazon's website in a few weeks.
Although some Apple products were previously available for purchase on Amazon through third party sellers, the new agreement will bring Apple-authorized sellers into the mix. In addition, the new deal will make Apple products on Amazon available in a variety of countries, including the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan and India.
In a statement on the new partnership given to CNET an Amazon spokeswoman said, "Amazon is constantly working to improve customer experience and one of the ways we do this is by increasing the range of products we know Customers want. We look forward to expanding our range of Apple and Beats products globally. "
By the way, the new partnership will see a lot of Apple hardware for Amazon, from iPhone to Apple's Beats headphone line. But a product that is not available for Amazon purchases is Apple's own HomePod. Despite this, this agreement appears to be a win-win scheme for both companies. especially with the holiday season just around the corner.
For what the new event means for existing third party merchants, they must allegedly "seek with Apple to become authorized Amazon dealers."
