With an exuberant countdown, Apple CEO Tim Cook threw open the doors of the company’s Delhi store amidst cheers and applause in Saket on Thursday morning. This is the Iphone makers’ second flagship store in India, after the first store was launched at Mumbai’s Bandra-Kurla complex earlier this week. 

The Saket store, which is located in Select City Mall, attracted hordes of consumers, who lined up to be part of this historic moment.
