From the “Too Much Encryption Will Kill Apple in India” File

Remember how too much encryption killed BlackBerry, according to the NSA’s general counsel? And how that would mean Apple would be totally slaughtered in countries like, say, India? Writankar Mukherjee, of the Economic Times:

Preliminary estimates suggest Apple sold half a million iPhones in the October-December period in India, said Tarun Pathak, senior analyst at market research company Counterpoint Research.

The sales number is corroborated by two leading trade partners of Apple in India. That figure compares with one million iPhones sold in India in the year to September 2014.

Apple doubled their sales rate in India. Positively slaughtered.
