This situation is going to change soon as Apple and Amazon have reached partnership to sell many Apple products on Amazon directly. The two companies are said to have come to an agreement that will see Amazon's selections of Apple devices greatly expand.

"We look forward to expanding our assortment of Apple and Beats products globally", said an Amazon spokesperson in a statement to CNET. For Apple, it could lead to increased sales of these products through Amazon's heavily visited website and app.

Amazon will sell and ship Apple products, which it will get directly from Apple. The only authorised online reseller that Apple has had so far in India is Infibeam.

Ever notice that you can't buy the Apple iPhone directly from Amazon?

Two of Apple's most popular products over the past year could be subject to some rather nasty malfunctions according to the company. Any warehoused Apple inventory associated with non-Apple authorized sellers past January 4 must be returned - Apple doesnt play around. This is because the device is a competitor to Amazon's category leading Echo devices.

In coming weeks, Amazon will start offering the latest editions of Apple's iPhone, iPad and other devices like Beats headphones in these markets.

Alphabet's Google pulled its video streaming app YouTube from two Amazon devices previous year because of several complaints against the online retailer, including its decision not to sell some of Google's products. But as a business, Amazon has full control over who can sell what on its platform.

But this deal does not include all the products from Apple and an example of one such device would be the Apple HomePod.

This could wind up being a big win for Apple, since using Amazon as an official channel for sales puts its devices in front of a ton of people. But for small online companies, it is reminder of how their livelihood depends on Amazon.
