Apple to sell smartphones in Walmart stores
Apple is planning to sell its iPhones in Walmart supermarkets and the company is working with Walmart on the rollout of its new smartphone network.
The move comes as the company looks to build a network that can help customers buy its products at discount prices.
Walmart has not yet released a timeline for the rollout, but sources told the Wall Street Journal that Apple is in the early stages of the rollout.
“We are working with them on the network,” a Walmart spokesperson told the Journal.
“We’re in the very early stages, so we can’t give you any more information at this time.”
Walmart has a strong network of retailers that sells its goods directly to customers, and Apple is likely hoping to build out its own network of resellers to help it expand its reach.
Walmart, which has had to compete against Amazon and other retailers for consumers, has been investing heavily in the mobile business, which will help it compete against the likes of Amazon and Google in the next few years.
In a post on Tuesday, Apple said that it would be expanding its iPhone network by adding about 300,000 new phones, which it said will be in the hands of 50 million consumers by 2020.
The company said that this upgrade would be made possible by expanding its supply chain, adding new resellers, and creating new partnerships.
Apple’s decision to bring its iPhone to Walmart could also help it get the most out of its existing iPhone app.
The iPhone app is one of the most popular and widely used applications for iOS devices, and the app has more than 25 million downloads a month, according to Apple.
