Apple in Nepal | Apple Inc. is a California-based American technology company. It is the company to introduce most of the iconic electronic products such as iPods, and Macs. But most importantly, the iPhone is the showstopper of Apple’s products.
Apple evolved from selling PCs and iPods to creating iconic iPhones that transformed the fundamental definition of a smartphone. As a result, iPhones have become extremely popular throughout the world.
Samsung, Nokia, Sony, Oppo, and Vivo are the most common and affordable brands when it comes to purchasing smartphones in Nepal. For a while after the release of the first 8th generation iPhones (iPhones 6) in Nepal, the exorbitant cost of the devices hampered sales.
Meanwhile, overseas people started sending iPhones as gifts to their relatives back home. Similarly, Nepalese have begun to invest in the iPhone as their living circumstances have improved.
Everyone admired the iPhone at first because of its sleek form, elegant finish, and appealing functions. However, Apple’s other products such as MacBook, iPad, AirPods, and smartwatches are also capturing the Nepalese market because of their distinctive characteristics.
