Bottom line

The iPhone’s price is in no way justified and won’t be affordable for many buyers due to this reason. After paying over 1 lakh INR the buyer gets only 64GB of storage which is not at all satisfactory. But, actually that is the thing which makes Apple different from other brands in the market. Since the starting, Apple has never released any mobiles in the mid-range budget category and has always been affordable only by the rich. Over time, this has helped Apple and its logo achieve a premium feel. Now, people are willing to pay a premium for the smartphone regardless of whether it provides enough storage or exceptional battery life because it has become a status symbol and Apple is successfully exploiting this mindset to grow its business and profit. Of course, the quality of the smartphone is supreme but it is overpriced.
