With the coming of the rumors about the upcoming iPhone 6, most Apple fans are already excited to hopefully see a bit larger iPhone, this time. On the other hand, the company is pulling out the iPhone 4 handset from the Indian market. According to the online reports, after just four months in the market, Apple has withdrawn the iPhone 4 from the Indian stores.
India is mostly dominated by Android users, thus to rekindle the iOS fans in India Apple had in fact ‘re-launched' the iPhone 4 in the market earlier this year in January. In the move to increase the iOS sales in the fastest growing smartphone market, Apple did its best to make the iPhone 4 reach every corner of the nation but eventually failed.
It offered heavy discounts, buybacks and even exchange offers for buyers in India. But it seems the scheme didn't work it seems. On the other hand, Apple is reportedly said to push the sales of the iPhone 4S in India now.
The cheapest model among the entire iPhone collection is the iPhone 4 and thus, it remained the base model in India. But the space is likely to occupied by iPhone 4S. But iPhone 4 did the best to increase the number of iOS users in India, said one of the reports online.
According to the CyberMedia, Apple's volume market share in the Indian smartphone market in the January-March quarter was 2.4%. Samsung was No. 1 at 38.9%, followed by Micromax at 19.1%, Karbonn at 6.9%, Lava at 6.1% and Nokia at 5.3%.
