Mind your language: Microsoft set to swing the axe on 27 languages in iOS Outlook

I got curious after my other post, re Urdu speakers and looked up Apples penetration into the Indian market. They claim 75% of the premium market for smart phones. They have 2% of the overall smartphone market. But as per the El Reg report 5 days ago about the COVID-19 app for feature phones, there are at least 55,000 feature phones compatible with the app. But getting back to the 2% iPhone penetration, there are likely far fewer using Outlook for iOS, so it may actually be a very small market for MS, far smaller than raw numbers of language speakers or iPhone/iPad users.
