Amazon is signing a deal with Apple to expand its collection of Cupertino's hardware. Apple has initiated replacement programs for both the 13-inch MacBook Pro (without Touch Bar) and the iPhone X, which was recently discontinued. They will join select MacBook models on the Amazon platform.
Ever notice that you can't buy the Apple iPhone directly from Amazon? The deal marks the first time that Apple's newest products have been available for direct sale through Amazon. The company is additionally going to sell products from Apple-owned Beats.
Amazon will start selling these Apple products beginning in the next few weeks in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan and India. The new deal hopes to improve the quality of the products sold on Amazon at standard pricing.

Dr Crameri said it was a "joy" to inform their mother, Bhumchu Zangmo, of the success - saying she had been "very grateful". They are expected to return to the Himalayan kingdom, one of the world's poorest nations, after the twins have recovered.
Another change is that only Apple authorized resellers can now list Apple products on Amazon.
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. Usually when announcing a fix or replacement program the company will explain that people in certain parts of the world are affected, or people who bought devices in a particular time-frame, or have devices with a serial number in a certain range. Similar to the iPhone X, Apple will replace affected computers at no cost through its retail channels or an Authorized Service Provider.
Amazon India did not respond to queries sent by Business Standard. That may sound tiny compared to Amazon, but it's impressive when you consider Apple is selling a very limited selection of products. The company also doesn't sell Google's Home devices.
