Apple is reportedly planning to relaunch the iPhone 4 8GB in India, the Economic Times reports. Apple had discontinued the iPhone 4 after launching the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S in India, which is the typical practice. While the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S are doing seemingly well in contributing to Apple’s market share in India by value, it has not done much for the Cupertino-based company in terms of market share by units.
According to the report, Apple could make the iPhone 4 8GB available for as low as Rs 15,000 by employing buyback schemes and EMI plans. The iPhone 4 8GB last retailed at Rs 26,500, though Apple had gotten rid of the inventory by announcing buyback schems for it. However, it remains to be seen how Apple sources the inventory considering it has stopped manufacturing the iPhone 4. Also interesting to see would be whether the iPhone 4 units will come pre-installed with iOS 7 considering many existing iPhone 4 users have complained that the device becomes slow and laggy after updating it to iOS 7.
