New iPhone 6 out of reach for most Indians

Price of newly-launched Apple smartphone is equivalent to nearly two years worth of the country's median income.

    Apple has launched its iPhone 6 in India, but many people there prefer less advanced mobiles as they simply cannot afford to buy the new smartphone.

    Only 12 percent of people in India currently use smartphones, where the price of an iPhone 6 is equivalent to nearly two year's worth of the country's median income.
