The new Apple iPhone 7 is to be made available for sale in Indian markets on October 7, this year. The price of the phone is expected to be a tad more than Rs 60,ooo. Earlier today, Apple’s yearly September event took place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, San Francisco. Speculations were ripe in India about the launch the new iPhone 7 in the country. To ensure a wider public can tune in, the live stream the event on Apple’s official website. From the variants in colours to its newly certified waterproof status, all the specifications of the Apple iPhone 7 have been speculated about, but the picture has been drawn too neatly by the tech giant to leave any clues behind.
However, Indian users would have to wait for a while top buy the Cupertino giant’s new iPhone 7. Reports indicate that the Apple iPhone 7 is to hit the Indian markets by October 7, which is also the most of many festivities in the country. Apple seems to have played a master stroke in matters of timing. India is currently the third largest smartphone market in the world and is expected to move up to the 2nd position very soon. So offering the iPhone 7 on sale during the festival season would boost Apple’s sales by a large number. Availability of the new Apple iPhone 7 during the first week of October is a welcome move from the tech giant. If Apple had gone with its regular trend of launching the smartphone in late December, it would have committed the mistake of negligence of a massive demography.
The current market for Apple in India stands at just 30%, which means the scope for growth is huge. Apple has in recent years tried to boost its sales in India and has achieved an impressive success rate of 56% growth per year. It seems that Tim Cook’s recent visit to the country to set up a Development Office in Hyderabad was a clear indication for the good times to come for Apple’s loyal users in India as the phone is being launched in the country within a month of the actual launch.
