Apple is on the verge of producing the latest iPhone X/XS in its Chennai plant, in India. We’ve just heard this news, and the American multinational technology company headquartered in Cupertino is already lowering the pricing of the iPhone XR in India. When officially announced in India, the pricing of the phone was INR76,900 ($1,117). Today, the phone has received an effective price cut of INR17,000 ($247) in the country.
Starting from tomorrow, the phone will start selling in India at a discounted price. The iPhone XR with 64GB of internal storage will now retail for INR59,900 ($870) in India. Whatsmore, the customers who are wedded to the HDFC Bank’s debit/credit card will hold an additional10% cash back. Well, this is an interesting move from Apple to skyrocket its sales as the total discount on the iPhones now sums up to INR24,500 ($356). The iPhone XR with 128GB of internal storage will set back at INR64,900 ($942). The HDFC customers can enjoy the phone at INR58,400 ($848), on the other hand. The top-tier 256GB variant of the phone will cost at INR74,900 ($1,088) for the regular consumers, while the phone will set back at INR67,400 ($979) for HDFC Bank customers.
In our opinion, it is one of the best moves that Apple has ever made. The Indian consumers can now buy the latest iPhones for as low as INR 53,900. Apple may bring down the pricing of the iPhone XS/XS Maz as well for making the iPhone sales more competitive in India.
