As expected, Apple has slashed the price of last year’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, as the company is gearing up to launch its latest iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in India next month. However, what was unexpected was the amount of price cut the devices have received. The price cut of up to Rs 22,000 is perhaps the biggest price cut for an Apple device till date.
The iPhone 6s 128GB variant is now available for Rs 60,000 compared to its earlier price of Rs 82,000. The bigger variant i.e. the iPhone 6s Plus (128 GB) will now be available at Rs 70,000. The iPhone SE has also seen a price cut and is now selling at Rs 44,000, while it was earlier selling at Rs 49,000.
Last year, Apple launched the iPhone 6s Rs 62,000 onwards while the iPhone 6s Plus was introduced at Rs 72,000 and above.
Regarding the specifications, both last year’s iPhones come with 2GB RAM and Apple’s 64-bit A9 chip. Both of them also sport 12 megapixel camera at the back with LED flash and a 5 megapixel front facing camera.
Whereas the iPhone SE is essentially the iPhone 5S on the outside and iPhone 6S on the inside. The smaller 4-inch iPhone SE didn’t receive the kind of response Apple expected given its premium price with fairly outdated design.
Meanwhile, those who want the latest iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus can now pre-order them through stores like iWorld and Unicorn. Customers can just pay Rs 5,000 as advance to book their iPhone which is all set to launch on October 7 midnight or later in some other stores.
Well, iPhone 6s and 6s at this price is a good deal but there has been rumours that iPhone 7 might also launch at the price starting from Rs 60,000 which will create a lot of confusion. The Rs 60,000 variant will most likely be the 32GB model. We will have to wait and see the exact price and if Apple decides to further drop the price of its existing iPhones.
