He also emphasizes that what is more important for Apple right now is customer loyalty and satisfaction, and on that ground Apple is passing with flying colors. Due to which we have impressive retention rate – that means if you are an iPhone user you barely switch to another device.
Apart from this, he said “India and China are the two biggest market for the company.” As Chinese smartphone market is experiencing a slowdown, and people are migrating to apple from android at a higher rate.India has also emerged as a key market as it recently got the LTE services, due to which iPhone will be of more use there.
