Apple announced the new iPhone XS, XS Max, iPhone XR and Watch Series 4 last night. What that means is Apple will stop producing any more of iPhone X, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE in the US but Indian users will still be able to buy the older iPhones for reduced prices starting from Rs 29,900 for the oldest iPhone available.
The biggest price cut comes from the 32GB variant of the iPhone 6s Plus which is now available at Rs 34,900 instead of its previous MRP of Rs 52,240. The 128GB version of the same now receives a similar price cut and is now available at Rs 44,900. The cheapest available Apple device is the iPhone 6s which now seems for Rs 29,900 for the 32GB version and Rs 39,990 for the 128GB storage variant.
Higher-end variants like last year’s iPhone X starts for Rs 91,900 while the iPhone 8 Plus comes for a new starting price of Rs 69,900. The iPhone 8 is now Rs 10,000 cheaper than the iPhone 8 Plus and Rs 10,000 costlier than its previous generation iPhone 7 Plus.
Putting things into perspective, the iPhone 8’s 256GB version is priced around the base variant of the new iPhone XR. The highest iPhone XR version sells for Rs 91,900 which is exactly what the iPhone X would sell for in India. While the 256GB variant of the iPhone X comes in at Rs 1,06,900, the newer iPhone XS and XS Max are priced at Rs 99,900 and 1,09,900 for the base 64GB version.
