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.

It’s a waste of money on spending too much on apple device, which costs twice as much wht it costs in USA. Plus the customer support is below par
Why do people want to spend 2-3 times the amount of money by buying anything from Apple? Do not get the hype..

Because India is a poor, third world country. Apple markets the iPhone towards upper-middle class people. Mainly in the United States, United Kingdom & Europe.

I think Apple’s having problems in that market because the phones are to Xpensive..and they essentially do the exact same thing from other phones..there’s nothing special about them anymore..except the price tag
Isn’t the 6s and the SE discontinued
Nice Nice
Instead of I phone I can buy three cheaper Chinese phone with almost same performance... I phone are over priced ... Money sucker
People who care about getting a good deal/good phone dont buy iphones. Rich people who dont bother to do any research feed apple.

I like Mi, IPhone are too expensive.
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

Saurav Sen
They need to see India uninc and then talk about profit per square inch
I can't stand Apple. For me this company can vanish....
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

The horrible truth about Apple's Why Apple Fails in India (& Why it Matters) 2 weeks ago   24:48

1:01 - A1226/A1260 2007-2008 Macbook GPU failures, warranty service refusal
2:21 - A1226/A1260 2007-2008 Macbook Pro hinge/frame problem
3:16 - A1286 Macbook Pro - the "Unibody" myth, glued together pieces fall apart
4:58 - A1286/A1297 MCP power circuit failure due to poor buck converter design: C7771 issue
6:01 - iPhone 4 cellular placement fail
7:12 - iPhone 5 power button problem
7:27 - A1286 2010 Macbook Pro GPU kernel panics due to same buck converter defect from 2008/2009(this gives you a hint that apple engineers doesn't give a crap about engineering good products, same design flaw for three straight years)
10:04 - A1286 2011 Macbook Pro GPU failure, Apple gets sued over not addressing problem.
11:43 - Apple gives out badly refurbished boards as warranty replacements for 2011 GPU failures.
13:06 - 2012 Retina Macbook Pro: another motherboard issue (U8900), due to poor soldering/manufacturing method on the GPU buck converter.
14:46 - Mac Pro GPU failure (again).
16:27 - iPhone 6/6+ touchscreen issue due to structural issue.
18:23 - SSD soldered straight into the motherboard+ chip that would kill the macbook, because a power line would short out to ground when the chip dies.
20:18 - 2016 Macbook keyboard reliability issue.
21:52 - 2016 Macbook Battery failure issue.
22:50 - A1278 Macbook Pro SATA cable failures(yes, really).

For 10+ years Apple has produced failure after failure - and never had to pay the consequences. It's time that changed.

Just don't buy the Yoga or Ideapad, they're all garbage. X, T, and P series Thinkpads are amazing though.
