Apple is making its first foray into the UK’s burgeoning e-commerce market by launching a UK delivery app for Amazon’s popular Prime service.
The Apple app will allow users to order from Amazon in the coming weeks, and will also offer local delivery to the UK, said a spokeswoman for Apple.
Amazon has recently launched a new service called Prime Now that gives customers access to thousands of products from its own retail stores, and the app is intended to complement the service.
Amazon Prime, which launched in June, offers a wide range of free and discounted items, including TVs, laptops, books, music and other goods, for as long as they remain in stock.
Prime Now customers also can use the service to buy items from Amazon directly.
Apple has also recently launched its own app for the same purpose.
