To solve this problem, the company has resurrected the iPhone 6 in the country, selling a 32GB variant of the 2014 phone through online retailers. This follows the model being discontinued in the country with the launch.
The iPhone 6, only available in Space Gray, went up for sale on Amazon on Monday. It retails for around 30,000 rupees, which converts to $450. It's a big reduction from the iPhone 6S, which is priced from $750 in India.
Most smartphones sold in the country are priced around or under $150, with only a fraction of the country's billion-plus citizens able to afford an iPhone. To help lower costs and boost its presence in the growing market, Apple will soon open its own stores and manufacture there.
Apple hasn't only brought back the iPhone 6 in India, having recently begun selling the phone in China and Taiwan as well.
