Apple has increased the price of its three iPhone models due to an increase in basic customs duty (BCD) rate that was announced in the Union Budget 2020. The company has hiked the price of Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 8.
The price has been also hiked as there was a withdrawal of earlier exemption from BCD/Social Welfare Surcharge. However, other iPhone models that are manufactured in India will not get any price hike. The model includes iPhone 11, iPhone 7 series and Apple iPhone XR. Furthermore, the prices of other Apple products including iPad, Apple Watch and Mac range of devices will remain unchanged.
