LG ready to sell iPhones in its stores

Now that LG has left the Android phone business, it is apparently poised to fill that void by courting one of its big rivals. In fact, according to MacRumors, LG has struck a deal with Apple to sell iPhones and iPads in 400 stores across South Korea starting in August.

However, the company reportedly signed a long ago “win-win” agreement with the National Mobile Communication Distribution Association, which prevents it from selling a direct competitor's smartphones in its stores.

That deal was made in 2018 and now LG is supposed to be planning to renegotiate the deal to officially sell iPhones and iPads in its stores. Furthermore, according to some rumors, the agreement with Apple would not include Macs, as devices such as the MacBook Air compete directly with the Gram series and other LG notebooks.
