Apple's iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 have also received price cuts and are now available for starting prices of Rs 39,900 and Rs 29,900 respectively.
Apple’s latest iPhones which are being assembled in India through Foxconn Technology Group in Chennai will hit the Indian shelves sometime next month. The iPhones in the equation are the 2018-released iPhone XR and iPhone XS which could both get significant price drops for being locally assembled.
The Apple iPhone XR will be available for a starting price of Rs 59,900 for the base 64GB model, down from its launch price of Rs 76,900. The 128GB and 256GB models of the iPhone XR also receive discounts and will be sold at Rs 64,900 and Rs 74,900 respectively.
Cashify in partnership with Redington, Ingram and Rashi Peripherals have also announced some exchange offer, where users can own an iPhone XR at an effective cost of Rs 1,999 per month using Axis Bank cards and Citi Credit Cards.
Apple is facing a lower-than-expected demand for not just the iPhone XR but also the flagship iPhone XS and XS Max. This has forced Apple to minimise manufacturing operations for its entire 2018 iPhone lineup that made its debut no longer than two months ago.
The iPhone XR is now available in India in three configurations - 64GB, 128GB and 256GB which can be purchased for Rs 76,900, Rs 81,900 and Rs 91,900 respectively. The “affordable” iPhone is available in six different colours - Coral, Yellow, Blue, (Product) Red, Black and White.
