Apple is no longer offering the iPhone 4s and iPhone 5c in India. While the phones are past their prime, Apple has a strong brand presence in India, leading to healthy sales of older iPhones. The iPhone 4s was selling for as low as ₹12,000 ($175), in direct competition to budget Android handsets from local vendors. The iPhone 5c, meanwhile, was available for ₹20,000 ($290).
The withdrawal of the iPhone 4s and 5c is mostly to increase the average selling price of iPhones in India, as Apple is pushing for more profits from the country. Although the company saw vastly increased sales, a bulk of the revenue was from sales of older, heavily discounted devices.
The iPhone 5s is now positioned as the most affordable iPhone in the country, with a retail price of ₹21,499 ($315).
