iPhone 6s failed in Russia?
If you remember the hype there was around the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus a year ago (up until the end of December), we know that these smart phones were not available in Russia, even the “gray” sellers — they are flying like hotcakes. And the demand does not fall even after several weeks after the start of sales, and in the official online Apple store send was only for 5-7 weeks. What we are seeing now?
In the Russian online store of the company, which this summer received a noticeable upgrade, free shipping iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus offer within one working day. And if earlier the deficit was at least a model with 128 GB of internal memory, now in abundance and they. You can choose any configuration of smartphone and receive your purchase the next day.
So, the popularity of the iPhone 6s in Russia was incredibly small in comparison with indicators of the same “six”. But at the same time, Apple could implement a record number of new smartphones in the first three days of sales. Why are the statistics different?
The fact that 6s and 6s Plus are not popular not because it’s “intermediate” model. Apple for a long time does not change the prices of their smartphones, and forcing them to do it and a major retailer. In the end, in the reports for October 2015 iPhone 6s cheaper to buy… Yes, on the grey market.
In conditions of difficult economic situation, the Russian users are not willing to pay 60 to 80 thousand rubles for smartphones. And while Apple will not begin to reduce prices (or not there will be a new iPhone), the demand for the iPhone 6s in Russia will remain low.
