The price hike was on expected lines as soon as the government announced rise in import duty during budget.
After the government hiked import duty on mobile phones to 20 per cent from 15 per cent in Union Budget last week, Apple has decided to increase prices of its products accordingly.
The new prices will come into effect from today, said Economic Times quoting the company. As reported, prices of both iphone models and Apple Watches have been revised.
"The iPhone X 256 GB is dearer by Rs 3,000-3,200, to Rs 1,08,930 from the earlier Rs 1,05,720. The starting prices of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s are now higher by Rs 1,100 and 1,350 respectively, to Rs 31, 900 and Rs 42,900, respectively," the report said.
The iPhone 6 32 GB, the cheapest in Apple's stable, will now cost Rs 31,900 vs its earlier price of Rs 30,780. The iPhone 6S 32 GB is now available for Rs 42,900 while the 128 GB version of the phone has now been priced Rs 52,100.
The iPhone X is now available for Rs 95,390 and Rs 1.08 lakh for 64 GB and 256 GB models respectively.
The iPhone 8 is now available for Rs 67940 and Rs 81500 for 64 GB and 256 GB models respetively. Revised prices of other models are: iPhone 8+ 64 GB (Rs 77,560), 256 GB (RS 91,110), iPhone 7+ 32 GB (Rs 62,840), 128 GB (Rs 72,060), Apple Watch Series 3 38 mm (Rs 32,380), 42 mm (Rs 34,410).
The price hike was on expected lines as soon as the government announced rise in import duty during budget. The Indian government has been increasing the import duty on mobile phones to encourage smartphone makers to produce devices in India itself.
