The report, citing anonymous sources, added that Apple’s India sales team is currently undergoing a restructuring phase. Despite CEO Tim Cook’s bullish progress reports on Apple’s Indian operations, it appears that the iPhone maker has made little ground in its bid to significantly grow market share in the country, which is still at 2%.
The telecom industry is about to get shaken up, as Apple Inc.’s ( AAPL) newest iPhone containing revolutionary new SIM-card technology that allows customers to switch between carriers at will is expected to debut this fall.

Apple Inc. has lost a trio of pivotal executives in India in recent weeks as it struggles to boost iPhone sales in the world’s fastest-growing major smartphone market, people familiar with the matter say. Apple’s Indian sales team is now undergoing a restructuring, one of the people said. The executive exodus is a symptom of Apple’s persistent malaise in India, where high tariffs inflate the price tags of imported gadgets such as the iPhone and consumers gravitate toward cheaper alternatives from the likes of Xiaomi Corp. and Samsung Electronics Co. Instead, the company resorts to marketing iPhones that are a few generations old and doesn’t manufacture its latest models domestically, thereby incurring import levies.
Being an Apple fan is an expensive hobby. Earlier this week, Apple refreshed its MacBook Pro lineup, and as The Verge pointed out, the most expensive model now costs just shy of $6,700.

For a hundred years, microphones consisted of a relatively large membrane whose vibrations were converted to electrical impulses.
