It was confirmed yesterday that a new agreement between tech giants Amazon and Apple was reached so that shoppers will soon be able to shop for new iPhones on Amazon.com, CNBC reports.
More specifically, the new agreement means that the latest Apple products like the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max will be available on Amazon. Customers will also find Apple TVs on Amazon, and the Amazon Prime Video app on Apple TVs.
What shoppers won't find at Amazon.com is Apple's new HomePod. For the record, Amazon doesn't sell the Google Home speaker either, and has a history of blocking potentially competitive Google products from its site.
Currently, many Apple products are only available on Amazon through third-party resellers and the prices and conditions vary widely. The new deal, which will take effect on Amazon sites in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan and India in the next few weeks, will limit resellers of Apple and Beats products to those authorized by Apple. Independent sellers of Apple products will have their listings removed after Jan. 4, 2019, but they can apply for authorization through Apple.
An Apple spokesperson said in a statement, "We're working with Amazon to improve the experience for Apple customers on their site and we look forward to those customers having another great way to buy iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac and more." For more on this, read the full CNBC report here.
