The devices were launched in the country on October 16. Reports say that the Cupertino-based company managed to sell only 50,000 units of the new iPhones over the weekend.
That's disappointing given that a total of 165,000 units were available for purchase this time, which is nearly three times of what was available last year, when the initial stock was sold out in the first 72 hours after the launch.
Retailers are expecting that sales will pick up following a price slash, something they say most customers are patiently waiting for - if you aren't already aware, India is currently the most expensive place to purchase the new iPhones.
