    As Apple turns to rising prices to grow its revenue, emerging markets like India offer huge potential growth. But the iPhone is failing to capture it.

They could funnel in old working phones from other countries, give a decent discount for turning in a full function, older device, then, disperse those phones as entry phones, then remote throttle speed and battery life and force an upgrade, and hand down those old phones again, and make any losses on money made by old phones bought outright. It would be very tough to monitor cash flow, with little electronic payment taking place, so quietly create an Apple sponsored debit card, then ATM's and slowly fill an OWN the tech void in that country, but never fill with or disperse Rubies.

Its just a smart play of government in India to shift apple's manufacturing unit here and create more jobs for people as there is less taxes if phones are assembled here prices will drastically drop just like it happened with samsung they started manufacturing phones in India and prices for high end devices from them remains the same every year though it costs same $1000 in india after currency conversion as well in united states... moral of the story you got to pay government one way or another 😂😂

While the coverage was otherwise good showing a local 'repair' show as a typical shop that sells phones is very misleading to say the least and shows a stereotypical picture of the country. Our phones are sold in clean, spacious, airconditioned stores usually inside malls that are fancier than most malls in the western world - I know this from having lived in India AND UK for significant number of years. Wish people showed reality and not lazy stereotypes for India.

1. Price of iPhone is ridiculous in India. 2. We Indians love to compare stuffs. A Mi or Samsung phone costs $200 and Apple costs 5 to 8 times more than that in India. 3. Indian is not a poor country but most the people here are hard-working middle class people and an iphone costs them a month of their salary. So, yeah... We think before we buy. I don't hate Apple btw cz I am an Apple user.

The Real Reason why most of we (Indians) Don't Prefer Apple . 3 One plus new Model = Cost of New Iphone mobiles with Same Specifications .lets assume 1 apple Phone will last 2-3 years after that we have to update For new Technologies..& one plus mobile will Last 1.5 -2 Years.. so for 3 mobiles total will be 5 years approximately. after two years change the Mobile for new Technologies.. so the cost will be 1/3th of the Apple phones.if one 1+ gets damaged accidentally also it will cost Maximum 2/3th of apple . So the efficiency is best for not opting apple. Many indians can afford iphones easily but they don't buy.

Apple is collapsing under the weight of its own arrogance and current obsession on snowflake culture. Tim Cook needs to focus on innovation,affordability instead of moralizing. One large reason why it’s falling in india is is due to the prime minster of India Narendra Modi and his India First polices. He wanted Apple to build manufacturing plants in India. I admire Modi because all leaders have an obligation first to support their population, their culture first before succumbing to the next shiny US salesperson. Once the us market tanks in two years watch how fast this snowflake culture vanished and back to basics will be the rule of the day

So I'm Indian and I have used an iPhone before. The last time I used it, I'd used 6s. I was so damn disappointed with its working. I felt like I was using a baby toy phone. Now what I've concluded is that we are too intelligent for this dumbing phone that won't let us exercise or brain when it comes to technology. Most of us change phones every year at least my friends and people I've met do. We want the latest TECHNOLOGY not the latest MODEL. Since we were kids every time someone got a new phone the first thing to do was to get into the settings and find all its hidden capabilities. There was no such thing in an iPhone. It's as simple as a rock. Designed for the dumbest of us. Take a look at India and you'll find engineers like salt in the sea. For us the phone is just to dumb regardless of how rich we are. I'm pretty rich (not trying to be a bitch or something) and not just by Indian standards since I live in Japan now and I'm still pretty damn rich here but how stupid would I have to be to spend any money on a relatively expensive product that gives you less than a quarter of the features a much cheaper product gives you while also making you pay for every little feature all other products offer for free? I'm not stupid no one here is. You can't survive in India if you're stupid. On the other hand, you can easily find an android user speaking quad core processor, ram, rom, android update patches and you even bring this up with iPhone users and they're like "I can take great pictures". They are not tech savvy people. That's the difference. Middle-Upper middle class dumb people Vs any class smart people. Not to mention even IPhone's camera is made by Sony and I loved my Sony phones to death. Why buy a low IQ expensive version of an amazing phone when I can have the amazing phone. Of course there are other better androids right now. Just an example

It is quite simple math guys, most of the developed countries basic wages or monthly average salary is atleast 3 to 4 times more than the cost of the latest iphone high end version. But in India ? Most of the people buy iphone with hard earned and saved money of last few months or else in 1 or 2 years EMI.. Apart from that the cost of the Iphone and the Technologies are not much varied between previous release, hence people reluctant to buy new and assume waste of money...

Forget about apple being too overpriced. It isn't user friendly for the Indians... Apple services is wayyy to exclusive for an Android dominated market where android apps are doing very well on their own, 90% Indians still user pirated media for music and movies and the iOS isn't so customisable for a population who are very tech savvy and constantly root/jailbreak their devices. Android gives a much affordable and more variety of products to serve the average indian. For apple to work the company would have to either to bring down their prices to nearly 70% or manufacture a new smartphone that doesn't cost more than 30k rupees with reasonable specs or the Indians have to become more rich... The latter being impossible and the former also meaning marketing suicide for the company.

As an existing iPhone user in India, I can just say that it isn't value for money, there is a whole list of "what you can't do" on the phone. Apple cannot grow in India without shedding out its American influence. You cant record a call, you cant use a Truecaller , you can't do screen mirroring, no headphones, no dual SIM ..PHeww. The phone is more of a status symbol in India than a useful product.
