NewTechLover, 14 Oct 2015Apple already has its own full fledged store here in Mumbai which sells all the apple products... moreApple neither own or runs Aptronics or any other stores in India. These are just Authorised resellers and service providers!!

Ibrahim, 14 Oct 2015An iPhone cost $220 per piece after all material and everything and they sell it for how much?... more600 you are talking is very less. Talk about other luxury manufacturers who make dumb watches costing 10,000$+ and gold/diamond plated icraps for million+ dollars. Its only for those sickest millionaires who care much for their pride and money is not their problem. Even a basic icrap too is for those who much care for pride.
Why the prices in India for apple iphone 6s and 6s plus devices are almost double than in US. I am Selling my iphone 6 plus not buying apple devices from India again.
Is somebody forcing u to buy an Iphone, no right. Its like watches, even a 10$ watch shows time and so does ROLEX. Why call others fool, they like it, can afford it, they buy it, simple.
Ru like one of those ppl who bash Apple bt will happily accept their products for free?
Get a life n stop criticizing others for their choice.

SW, future updates, device testing, service, customer support, etc. are not included in the 220 USD cost.
Let alone VAT, shipping, store expenses, etc...

an 949us$ iphone 6s plus 128 gb is sold at 1400+us$ in india
hope this direct apple store reduces the price difference
Well Apple CEO was reading about Lakshmi Mittal just before making the decision to open stores in India,so naturally, considering our heavily generalised society heavy on stereotypes, everyone in India is naturally unbelievable wealthy. Therefore the iPhone pricing was set as it is.
I'm going to watch Slumdog Millionaire.
An iPhone cost $220 per piece after all material and everything and they sell it for how much????? $600???

They mostly use it for flexing (showing up), because they are also not smart enough.
The people you mostly see use iPhone are...if not an ignorant richman then it will be a so-called classy girls.
We are very wise this time around to be fooled apple.
AnonD-328197, 14 Oct 2015Huh... Those thieves? I even wonder why we allow ourselves to be defrauded by this American co... moreWe should be very frank to ourselves people. Of what use will an IPHONE $1000+ do to us that a $100 smartphone can't?
Or just to show up that my smartphone cost zillion dollar right?
Well everybody should do what he/she pleases people. As for me...........
INR62,000 ($949) for a 2012 specs 16 GB phone with mediocre features and gimmicks which would be interesting for teenies?? You're funny, Apple. When you open the stores in India, please provide your staff over there a red nose and clown costumes. That will suit to the deals you offer.
