Apple will launch the iPhone 7 in India at the Same Time as the US

Browse This Page

Tim Cook’s recent India visit may have paid off more than people were expecting. Apple will launch the next iPhone 7 in India at the same time as most major markets like the US and the UK, according to our source, who is in proximity to the launch planning.

In India, Apple loses major of its initial sales push to the Grey market imports, or to people purchasing the iPhone overseas. Apple wants to cut this down by launching at the same time as the major markets.

India is one of the strongest growing smartphone markets in the world and Apple sees the large potential in the market.


iphone 7 backOur source (who explicitly wished to remain anonymous due to his dealings with Apple) also mentioned that Apple is working hard on bringing not only the official Apple Stores experience to the main cities, but also to the online Apple Store which does not exist in India.

The company (Apple) is not only in the process of setting up Apple Retail stores that everyone is talking about, but also the official online Apple Store, which will allow people to customise their purchases.

While this information is not far from what Apple has officially announced, and the company is in talks with the Indian government to allow licensing for the retail stores. We still have to see if Apple will bring the full Apple experience to India. Something which many users complain has been lacking, especially the Apple Care experience which is possibly the best anywhere an official Apple store exists.

If Apple does launch the “full experience” online Apple Store, people may finally be able to customise their MacBooks and iMac as per required specs, have them shipped directly to their houses and also finally be able to get “I’m Batman” laser engraved on their iPad or iPhone.

    Thank you Babu BiswasU0001f60a. Indians don’t understand anything easily. I know Vvinit that the price of iPhone increases because of taxes. But iPhone isn’t the only company in India in which government is putting taxes on. There are other companies also around like Samsung, LG, Sony, Lenovo, Motorola etc. But they are managing their selling price. So, it’s not our headache at all to think about those imposed taxes. It’s iPhone’s owner headache to minimize the price tag as much as possible so that it doesn’t look overpriced when it’s on launch. Ofcourse, iPhone provides better performance than other phones, no doubt since it’s OS is clean and has got powerful hardware but other phones aren’t even bad though at this range. I’ve so many iPhones too working slowly (iPhones over 1 or 1.5 year old). And same happens with other phones as well. And if I talk about durability, then Samsung can’t be neglected. If you buy any of it’s phones, that phone will work till it becomes completely dead. It will work even if any part of the phone is damaged or missing(externally) or screen is broken.
    I’m not at all asking for never buying iPhones. I’m just asking to Indians to stop buying iPhones for a while in India. If other companies can sacrifice with their price tags, then why not iPhone?

  • Babu Biswas

    subham nanda well said…..truth has been spoken……instead buy galaxy s7 edge

  • Bhagyesh Patel

    iPhones last long than any other products and prices may decrease in India after construction of Apple Store

  • Shanu Mudgal

    Not iPhone 7 people wants 7s

  • Avi Dwivedi

    But not with the same price as U.S.

  • Anjan Admi

    I think… The next apple i phone 7 will b. 1 lakh…. For 32 gb…

  • Lakshya Chopra

    It should be costly as is price

  • Siddharth Chaudhary

    Taxes har device pe lagte hai……One+ phones one almost as same rate in China as in India…..

  • Vvinit Khanna

    It’s justified as which gives u a quality product and strong os a better kernel and a good fusion of OS and hardware hence iPhone 6 ( dual core 1 gb ram) is compared with samsungs etc 8 core 3 gb ram etc etc
    And for price in India it’s because of the list of taxes indian gov puts on it

  • Vvinit Khanna

    What about indian gov ka list of tax jo lagta hai

  • Shubham Nanda

    I’m not asking to stop using iPhone, just stop buying overpriced stuffs so that thay also stop doing that. iPhone is really good but it doesn’t mean it will be overpriced.

  • Shubham Nanda

    U0001f602kyu chup…I just said what’s true.U0001f612

  • Shubham Nanda

    Indians shouldn’t buy expensive iPhones. They sell their phones at more higher price than it’s actual price(compared to other countries too). Means they’re fooling Indians because they know, Indians somehow gonna buy iPhone at any cost, even if it’s been priced at so expensive price as it increases their prestige among his/her friends since it’s such a expensive company, not exactly because it’s famous coz it’s famous because it’s one of the expensive mobile company.
    If people will stop showing interest in overpriced iPhones, then automatically they’ll start launching their iPhones at it’s actual cost atleast.U0001f606
