Located in Mumbai's bustling Bandra Kurla Complex, the first Apple Store in India, Apple BKC will be a vibrant location where customers can mingle, discover Apple goods and services, enjoy customer service and learn how to maximise the use of their devices through free Today at Apple sessions.
On the opening day of the shop, Apple BKC will launch a special Today at Apple series called "Mumbai Rising," which will run all summer long.

To reflect the distinctive geometry of the store, Apple BKC has a triangular handcrafted timber ceiling that extends past the glass façade to the underside of the outside canopy. The 1,000 tiles that make up the ceiling are 408 pieces of wood each, comprising 31 modules per tile. Over 450,000 distinct pieces of wood were used, all of which were put together in Delhi. Two Rajasthani stone walls and a 14-meter stainless steel staircase leading from the ground floor to the cantilevered mezzanine welcome clients as they enter the store.
The newest iPhone, Mac, iPad, AirPods, Apple Watch, and Apple TV lines, as well as accessories like AirTag, are on exhibit throughout the area at display tables and avenues. Additionally, Apple BKC offers Apple Pickup, which makes it even simpler for clients to place an order online and pick up goods at a time that suits them.
