Apple has been negotiating with the government to expand its operations in the country. It is planning to sell refurbished iPhones and set up its own retail stores with planned expansion of its manufacturing operations. While Apple setting up shops here doesn’t necessarily mean that iPhones will get any cheaper, these online sales act as a great opportunity to grab iPhones at discounted price.
