While waiting patiently along with full energy, an Apple enthusiast, Haroon Shergill said:
“For me, it is yet another repackaged iPhone 6s with a few bumped up specifications. New Apple products feel more like recycled ideas than innovation. Having said it, I am still buying an iPhone 7 because the black looks sleek.”
The price for Apple iPhone 7 sales start at Rs. 60,000 and it has undergone many tests recently. Some of the analysts are of the opinion that the Apple iPhone 7 sales could do better this year as a result of this festive season.
Tarun Pathak, senior analyst, Mobile Devices and Ecosystems at New Delhi-based Counterpoint Research said:
“With this, Apple will have three-four weeks of solid festive momentum. Last year, Apple launched iPhone models on 16 October in India. This year, the company will have more time-frame to register better sales figures.”
If Apple retail stores land up in India this is indeed great news, specifically for the budding smartphone market in the country. But concentrating on the Apple iPhone 7 sales, it will be interesting to see how the iPhone 7 devices perform, considering the Diwali festival that falls on October 30.
