Apple and Amazon may set up shop in Saudi Arabia soon

Latest news

    Apple has a presence in Saudi Arabia, but it’s through third parties. None of the big international tech companies have direct retail in the country, but that may be about to change. Apple’s presence will focus on the company’s popular products; the first Apple Store in the country may open in 2019. Apple is already the country’s second most popular phone provider, despite not having a direct presence, so it’s clearly a smart move for the tech company.

    It’s also not a surprise that Amazon is interested in the Middle East. Earlier this year, the online retail giant acquired Souq.com, which was touted as the Amazon of the Middle East. This allowed for Amazon products to be sold in the country. Now, Amazon is clearly looking to move into back-end services, as the talks are heavily focused in its Web Services arena, which provides cloud services to companies. There is currently no timeline for the company’s goals in Saudi Arabia.
