Amazon to sell Apple's newest products for first time

You'll also see newer devices at retail price, and with any luck, you might catch some Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals with Amazon directly offering these products. The iPhone XR, iPhone XS, Apple WAtch Series 4 and iPad Pro will be available for purchase though.

The deal includes listings for the U.S., UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan, and India, and they should begin appearing within the next few weeks.

CNET reports that Apples authorized resellers will mostly be stocking the retailer and non-approved sellers will not be able to send Apple products to Amazon warehouses after December 1 as part of the deal. The smartphone remains the Cupertino, California-based company's most important device, generating about 60 percent of quarterly sales and tying customers to other services such as Apple's music and video streaming. The two companies are said to have come to an agreement that will see Amazon's selections of Apple devices greatly expand.

As for what the new arrangement means for existing third-party sellers, they will reportedly have to "apply with Apple to become authorized resellers on Amazon".

Apple hasn't traditionally sold its brand-new devices through official channels on Amazon, but it would seem that's changing today.

Apple and Amazon have made for Amazon to sell Apple products on several of its markets around the globe.

Amazon won't be selling Apple's HomePod, the iPhone maker's competitor to Amazon's popular Echo brand of home wireless speakers.

'We look forward to those customers having another great way to buy iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac and more'.

There's no word on when these listings will go live, but CNET says that listings from independent sellers will be removed from the site after January 4.
