San Francisco: It is a reality that most of the gadgets that Apple launches every year don’t necessarily make it to India within the first 30 days of the announcement. And while this year is no different, we can surely take heart from the fact that we already have a clear roadmap as far as the India launches for most products is concerned.
First up, the iPhones. The prices of the iPhone 7 range will start at ₹ 60,000 though we await the specific prices of individual models, which will differ for both phones and storage options—you can choose from 32GB, 128GB and 256GB in the jet black, black, silver rose gold and gold colour options. Apple has confirmed that the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus will be heading to India on 7 October, and we should get the final prices of each variant well before that. We also await any potential information about specific operator tie-ups for tariff plans or special schemes, if at all.

The entire wireless revolution for Apple is being led by the AirPods wireless earphones, and these will be arriving with a price tag of ₹ 15,400. While no exact date is confirmed, the availability is tentatively late October.
Then there is the Apple Watch line-up. Now we have the newer Series 2, the first-generation Watch as well as the Nike+ variant. The Series 2 will also be available in sizes of 38mm and 42mm, in gold, rose gold, silver and space grey colour options. Depending on the size and the type of band that you select, the prices of the Series 2 of the Watch start at ₹ 32,900. Apple says that these will be rolling into stores in India in late October. There is also a new ceramic Apple Watch Edition, which is priced at ₹ 1,10,900.
