Amazon will soon start selling Apple products directly in several countries

For now, Apple products that are coming to Amazon will include the iPad Pro, iPhone XR, iPhone XS, Apple's Beats headphones, and the Apple Watch Series 4.

Amazon is signing a deal with Apple to expand its collection of Cupertino's hardware.

Separately, Apple's also announced an SSD storage replacement affecting the non-Touch Bar version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro sold between June 2017 and June 2018.

While that is not the most straightforward answer we could have hoped for, there's a chance the "other factors" portion of that statement means that Amazon would like to avoid pitting its Echo line of smart speakers directly against Apple's alternative - or vice versa.

Amazon.com on Friday said it would carry more Apple products globally in time for the holiday shopping season, as the technology rivals put aside past differences to boost sales. At one point, Apple products made up half of AceBeach's business, but in recent years Apple has made it increasingly hard for third-parties to sell used or new iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches. The new deal hopes to improve the quality of the products sold on Amazon at standard pricing.

Now Apple has announced that customers can have a free screen replacement, with customers who have already paid for the fix able to request a refund.

If you've experienced any of this, Apple encourages you to find an authorized service provider, set up an appointment at an Apple Store or contact the company's technical support teams, who will assess the phone.

Unauthorized companies are still able to sell Apple goods on sites like Ebay and Craigslist, or through their own sites, but that business is a fraction of what they can do on Amazon. That may sound tiny compared to Amazon, but it's impressive when you consider Apple is selling a very limited selection of products.

The two companies have occasionally been at odds over the sale of Apple devices.
