Apple planning to retracts iPhone 4s & iPhone 5c from India: reports

According to a report by Economic Times, Apple is withdrawing its iPhone 4s and iPhone 5c models from the Indian market, in a bid to increase their Average Selling Price in the country. The iPhone 4s has been selling in India anywhere between Rs 12,000 - Rs. 16,000, whereas the iPhone 5c can be bought for as low as Rs. 20,000.

With this move, Apple may be looking to completely exit the sub-20K smaretphone market in India. Although no official statement has been made by Apple yet, analysts feel that Apple is doing so to fix its dipping avergae selling price.

Since there has been no word from the company on the timeline by which it will phase out both the devices, currently, both the iPhone 4s and iPhone 5c are available for purchase on ecommerce websites. It is expected that sellers on ecommerce websites such as Amazon and Flipkart will now start pricing the iPhone 4s and iPhone 5c higher, before Apple completely halts their shipment. 

Because of their sub-20K pricing, both the iPhones have been quite popular in India. The iPhone 4s comes with a 3.5 inch display and runs on Apple's A5 chipset whereas The iPhone 5c comes with a 4 inch display and runs on the A6 chipset.
