Apple on Tuesday unveiled its next generation of iPhones — a line-up that will boast better cameras, faster processors, a new charging system and a price hike for the fanciest model.
The showcase comes as the company tries to reverse a mild slump that has seen its sales drop from last year in three consecutive quarters. The malaise is a key reason Apple's stock price has dipped by nearly 10 per cent since mid-July, dropping the company's market value below the USD 3 trillion threshold it reached for the first time earlier this summer.
India is one of the iPhone maker’s growing markets with the company having tripled its iPhone production in the country and aiming to secure its supply chain by assembly iPhones in India following US’ strained ties with China.
In line with the plan, Cook last year inaugurated two brick-and-mortar stores in India – one in Delhi and another in Mumbai.
