Amazon will soon start selling Apple products directly in several countries

As part of the new partnership, Amazon will sell Apple's new iPhone devices like the new iPhone Xs and iPhone Xr, as well as the new iPad Pro and Apple Watch Series 4.

It's not clear when exactly Apple's new products will arrive on Amazon, but we can expect them to become available in the "coming weeks".

Though some Apple products were previously available for purchase on Amazon via third-party sellers, the new deal will bring Apple-authorized sellers into the mix.

While this new agreement won't cover every currently-offered Apple device, it will include a lot of them. Apple also sued Amazon in 2016 over the sale of counterfeit devices.

There will be some impact from this agreement on other sellers, though. In fact, you might have realized that Apple doesn't sell any of its products through Amazon's website or app except through third party sellers.

'Amazon is constantly working to enhance the customer experience, and one of the ways we do this is by increasing selection of the products we know customers want, ' an Amazon spokesperson said in a statement. Amazon has declared that it will be selling Apple products globally. None of these products technically compete one-on-one with Amazon's - the Fire tablets are geared to the mass market while the HomePod is a notable omission in this list.

Apple and Amazon have had something of a contentious relationship over the past few years, but the two tech behemoths recently chose to embark on a new partnership in the name of commerce. This is because the device is a competitor to Amazon's category leading Echo devices.

There's no word on when these listings will go live, but CNET says that listings from independent sellers will be removed from the site after January 4.
