The expert explained the sharp drop in sales of the iPhone 14 in Russia

MOSCOW, 14 Oct – PRIME. Sales of the new iPhone 14 in Russia this year have decreased by 4 times compared to sales of the iPhone 13 last year due to the lack of a guarantee from Apple and high prices, Eldar Murtazin, a leading analyst at Mobile Research Group, told RIA Novosti.

According to him, there is nothing new in the new models, besides, “the official market has ended, since parallel imports in the Russian Federation.”

“That is, this is the lack of a guarantee from Apple, and we see that there is no trade-in and installment plan with normal conditions. Based on this, we get rather sluggish sales. Well, plus it’s all expensive for consumers. The concept has changed, people have become more rational, so sales fell four times. In general, the market has changed very, very much,” Murtazin said.
