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.

Apple fails because of
1. lack of after sale support
2. Tariffs

And here in India 9 out of 10 owns a smartphone (mostly Samsung's higher mid range) and have access to internet still android dominates

Not enough apple pie
Half of India can’t even afford a piece of bread how will they be able to afford $1000 phone 😂
Indians spend more on real important things instead of a $700-$1000 piece of shit whom battery will be intentionally reduce in power compared to phones they get the job done.

I put an android from china for $180 and it has all the features an iphone has for half the price and the OS might be slow, it gets the job done

Two reasons: 1.overpriced, 2. Exclusivity
Apple fails in India because of T-Series
I went back to India and barely see a person with an iPhone. Except for my grandpa. He has an X.
Walking round with my 6s + ppl be like.
“Ha noob, I have he s9”
*Screw Android man...*

Note: ppl buy phones mainly for its camera

Quite a few racist comments
Lets talk
I recently bought a samsung galaxy A 30, do you know why? Because it is cheap and gets the job done. I should point out that I didn't buy an iphone X not because I can't afford it, but because it is unreasonably overpriced. I refuse to throw away my hard earned money just for the sake of showing other people that apple logo. Most Indians look for value for money, which is a sound logic. Apple can never succeed in India if it offers overpriced phones with average / below average specifications.

The horrible truth about Apple's Why Apple Fails in India (& Why it Matters) 3 months 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.
