Apple Inc. (AAPL) stops selling the iPhone 4 in India

Posted May 7, 2014

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has stopped selling the iPhone 4 in India, according to The Times of India. Apple recently started selling the iPhone 4 in India again, which gave the country a low-cost option for gaining access to an Apple device. The iPhone 4 was being sold in India for under 20,000 rupees (about $333). This was Apple’s lowest cost device in India at the time. Fortunately, Apple launched a buyback program in India to lower the cost of the iPhone 4S, which helped the newer device become the top-selling Apple’s handset in India. The iPhone 4 is now four years old and does not technically support iOS 7. The iPhone 4 does not support turn-by-turn navigation, panorama mode, AirPlay mirroring, or Siri. Apple CEO Tim Cook reported iPhone sales in India were up 55% over the past year.
