Get customised Apple MacBooks, iMac in India now
Apple has started offering its built-to-order service for Mac devices in India. This means if you want to buy MacBook or iMac with more RAM or storage, you can pay extra and get it from Apple. The service will be available through Apple Resellers in the country, and you can cross-check for the variants available on Apple website.
Many people have been asking for Apple to start this option in India. As buyers were only getting select variants of Mac devices till now. But with this announcement, customers can order whichever model they want from the company.
The service is available on MacBook Air, Pro, Mac Mini and all the iMac models sold by the company. But considering Apple’s premium pricing, we’d expect the extra RAM or upgraded graphics card to cost a bomb. This development suggests Apple is slowly bringing all its products and parts to the country. The company is also expected to start online sales of iPhone and MacBooks later this year.
In addition to this, the Cupertino-based giant has already talked about setting up its first retail in India. This is most likely to open by 2021 in Mumbai. But with the uncertainty caused by the pandemic, Apple might find it hard to meet its deadline.
Apple premium wireless headphones
Apple has already started the mass-production of the AirPods Studio headphones. The company is preparing for its imminent launch later this year. Although the design is still completely unknown, the rumors about Apple’s new headphones continue to reinforce the company’s plans for the AirPods lineup this year. Jon Prosser, a renowned leaker, claimed the new AirPods Studio headphones will cost $349 (Rs. 26,500 approximately) in the United States.
After succeeding with AirPods in the market, and having more than 60 million wireless headphones sold last year, the company now wants to enter a slightly more select market niche with premium over-the-ear type headphones that would compete against the likes of Bose QC35, Surface Headphones, and Sony WH-1000XM3.
Lenovo patents AirPods-like design for its TWS earbuds
Lenovo has filed for patents for its truly wireless earbuds that replicate AirPods design. This has been given in this report, which also suggests the company could launch its product in the near future. The image suggests Lenovo is going for a flatter stem for the earbuds which makes it easy to grip for the user.
Each of the earbuds seems to have the charging pin and mic at the bottom of the stem. And going by its size, it’s possible the device will support touch-based controls, instead of buttons. We can also see the image of the earbuds in the filing, and the charging box seems to be missing. This is likely to be included once the patent is filed.
Lenovo budget TWS earbuds in India
The company has already launched a slew of affordable wireless earbuds in India. It has the HT10 Pro and HT20 series that offers decent sound output for the price. They also come with IPX5 rating for water and sweat proof durability. The earbuds connect using Bluetooth 5.0 and remain paired for up to 20 meters range. These are priced at Rs 3,799 for the HT20 and Rs 4,499 for the HT10 Pro in the country.
Speaking of AirPods design, latest leaks suggest even the OnePlus will be using them for its own TSW earbuds. The company plans to launch its OnePlus TWS earbuds along with the rumored OnePlus Z smartphone. It has also been mentioned the upcoming earbuds will be likely call the, “OnePlus Buds”.

Leaks have also shown us the oval-shaped charging case with LED-indicator in the front. This will likely show the connectivity status and change color depending on the battery level . The default color of the indicator seems to be Green as per the illustration. These earbuds will also come with “L” and “R” markings towards the bottom of the stem
