This is a good news for all the iPhone and Apple lovers who wanted to get an apple product, specifically iPhone in their pockets, but couldn’t due to the hefty price tags associated with the apple products. Even the much awaited ‘cost friendly’ iPhone 5C wears a bulky price tag in India which is near about ₹ 40,000. In the Fiscal year 2013, Apple had seen a 51% increase in sales, the iPhone 5S performed better than expected, but overall profit of the company saw a decline of 33%. On these particular grounds, Apple is highly on a losing part of the battle in the mid budget smartphone range where Apple’s greatest rival, Samsung is a powerful contender and Nokia and Sony are giving it a good competition too. Therefore, the friendly folks at Apple Inc. have decided to bring back the most successful smartphone in this country, yes you are right, they are planning for the Apple iPhone 4 relaunch in India. The 8 GB version of the Apple iPhone 4 shall be relaunched in India at a very attractive price of around ₹ 15,000 and that’s what sets this news on fire.
The iPhone 4 has so far been a milestone for Apple in India. This smartphone has made a very high amount of selling and still hasn’t lost its charm from the Indian markets and still is in demand. However, Apple has stopped the manufacturing of iPhone 4 all around the world. What they plan is to collect all the unsold boxes of iPhone 4 from all their dealerships across the world, and shall be sourcing all of it to India and shall be made available for sale at a price tag of around ₹ 15,000. However, it is not clear that is Apple going to offer a flat rate of ₹ 15000 on it or not. What is assumed is that Apple might give this as an effective price, with some EMI options, as well as exchange or buyback options on smartphones.
