While Apple’s brand is successful in most countries, there is one place where Apple hasn’t fared so well: India.

Even though they are available now, the vast majority opt for cheaper Android phones.
Bloomberg has a report on Apple shifting its strategy, including the introduction of official Apple Stores in the country. They are also working on improving iPhone apps and technology, such as Maps and Siri, to work better in India.
