Customers can find the different versions available under the ‘Compare Mac models’ tab in the Apple India website. ‘Find a retailer’ near you option at the bottom of the page helps buyers search a local re-seller.

However, buyers can place their orders only through select local Apple-authorised re-sellers and discuss the different options available, including prices, Apple said. Currently, configuration options are not available on e-commerce sites like Amazon, Flipkart and Paytm Mall.

Apple Mac

Before this, the iPhone maker provided only a few basic models of Mac computers in India. It did not provide any specific upgrade options in memory, storage or graphics unlike in its markets such as the U.S. and Canada where it was available.

Apple’s new move comes after its chief executive officer Tim Cook revealed plans of opening the first online store in India this year and offline retail outlet next year. His announcements came early this year after the central government relaxed local sourcing norms for single-brand retailers.
