Apple Wants to Remove iPhone Distribution Chain in India

Browse This Page

Apple is all set to launch official Apple stores and the online Apple store in India. With the company steadily moving forward towards that goal, they intend to remove the current distribution layer in the market.

Sources close to iGyaan from within Apple have clarified that service and sale of all iPhones may fall back under Apple’s own command as the general approach towards service has been poor in India when compared to global standards of service.

Traditional distribution model which was adopted by importers of iPhone in India, Ingram and Reddington, end up decreasing the sale prices of the iPhone considerable within one year, which is not the case with Apple’s global sales model. Apple wants to ensure that the price protection for the customer who buys the phone at launch is equal for the customer who buys the phone six months from launch.

iPhone SE heroThe Recent launch of the iPhone SE is the biggest example of Price problems faced by the company. The iPhone SE was launched at Rs. 39000 while the iPhone 6s was available at the time for around Rs. 40000 down about Rs. 16000  from initial launch price. Apple then steadily moved to regulate the price of the iPhone in India, even though denying it, to ensure the sale of their new mid-tier iPhone SE.

Apple sees India as a large opportunity for sales, only after the US and China, and expects to be able to provide equivalent pricing as the US markets and also ensure that price does not fall by taking reins of the sales and service model in India. In a scenario like that the iPhone SE, which costs $ 399 in the US would cost Rs. 26500 in India and not Rs. 39000.

A very welcome move. This is the reason now iPhone losing it’s resale value these days, because anyone can get a brand new device at a very cheap price just after the launch of 6 months. It should not happen.

This scheme does not ensure same rates as in prices of an iphone Only the rates of decrease of prices will be controlled. Apple will still be shitpensive and this policy makes sure it remains that way.

So basically apple wants to keep its expensive devices expensive which will further reduce its sales. No problemo.

@igyaan Will all this lead to iPhones costing the same in India as they are in US ??

igyaan This should help bringing uniform(lower) pricing to iPhones in India. If it doesn’t, due to various Other reasons, then pointless !

India is a poor country where a huge no. of iPhone is sold at price higher than the US -_-
Glad to see that they will provide the phones at the rates which will be equal to the rates overseas not in excess ….
Taking the distribution directly in own hands and stopping the present way will help the Indian iOS lovers
