    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.

Indians are smartest when it comes to technology and investments. Price of Apple products are high because of "Apple Tax" which means company uses the high profit margin to develop it's own infrastructure and technology which also means that the price which people pay for an apple product is the price which that product don't actually deserve. Manufacturing price of Apple X=357.5$ Selling price=999$. Profit 64.2%.

NEWLY MIGRATED INDIAN FAMILY WILL EASILY SURPASS AVERAGE AMERICAN FAMILY IN JUST FEW YEARS THATS A FACT!!! TELL ME WHY? BECAUSE WE DUMB? OR BECAUSE WE WORK TOGETHER AND DONT BUY SHIT THAT WE DONT NEED? CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG You dont need IQ of Einstein to live smarter, its commin sense

It’s most likely the price! I have the iPhone 6 which is like the worst iPhone you could buy now but I got it for N109,000 in Nigerian currency. My most expensive phone till date. In Nigeria, having an Apple phone is really more about status than anything else. Android is the go to phone for practicality and affordability...

Because Indians calculate everything. They just see that on the long run and for the price involved, they dont need a fancy phone which is hard to use. parts are not available and are again expensive, downloading apps and sharing data is complicated hence they just avoid it. Smart people

Is that a serious question? India is freakin third world country and Apple has even its budget phones in the premium price class. Android phones are far superior in specs and pricing and use dual sims which is a frequent demand in third world countries. Iphones don't do dual sims.

Aside from the sheep that will buy the latest phone every single year no matter the cost, smartphones are slowly losing sales everywhere to the Chinese rivals. The new features on phones are no longer as interesting as the generations before. China can clone Apple and Android phones in bulk at a much cheaper cost, and it's not just India that will be purchasing.

Only 10-20% or less Indians are actually well educated and are into medicine and Engineering. The rest of Indians are mostly professional Political Party Workers. Talking Politics and parasitical life is the main professional in India. Those who study, meritorious, Competent and hard working Indians are forced to leave India thanks to the Socialist Republic. The fact that Nothing works in India, the national cultural is that of make shift called as 'Jugaad'. The Indians in India are the Polar Opposite of Germans. Disorderly, disorganised, lack attention to detail, Basically welfare population. Who are we kidding if Indians wants cheap stuff without a care for engineering and quality. Indian manufacturing serious in incompetent besides selling cheap Chinese phones which are bugged for espionage and are being sold at cheaper rate. Indians including me don't deserve an iPhone or A Lamborghini or anything cutting edge as we cannot even design our own cuties. We don't even have a design or quality control philosophy. Sure our arts and artisans once created the best of their class in the world. Indians in India barely contribute anything to the world with rare exceptions.

Probably I can give answer to it as I’ve experienced using an iPhone 1. It’s too expensive with features which are found on other brand Mobiles in cheaper price. 2. It’s service centres are NOT available everywhere and if available it’s in a very less percentage. 3. It’s accessories are not found at every place (Original) and moreover if found its too expensive. Simply I experienced that my iPhone 5S Battery was damaged and when I contacted iPhone service centre they asked me to pay 7500 INR for a 1400mah Battery I can buy a new normal smartphone within that rate

I'LL TELL YOU WHY. INDIA HAS MAINLY POOR PEOPLE AS IT'S MOSTLY RURAL. BUT THE CITIES HAVE EVERYTHING, ALMOST EVERYONE HAS iPHONES, ALL CITY MIDDLE CLASS PEOPLE. BUT THERE ARE ALSO MANY DEVELOPED RURAL AREAS. THEY ARE CALLED RURAL AS AGRICULTURE IS THE MAIN BUSINESS. ONE EXAMPLE IS PUNJAB, MANY PEOPLE HAVE IPHONES, BUT WHEN IT COMES TO THE IPHONE X MAX, IT'S TOO MUCH MONEY FOR NOTHING. MANY PEOPLE ARE JUST STICKING WITH THEIR IPHONE 6 SERIES AND 7 SERIES.
