Online seller Flipkart is back with another electronics sale, focusing on Apple’s products such as the iPhone and MacBook, as well as accessories. The sale, which ends on 26 April, offers direct price cuts, cashbacks, specific bank offers and exchange offers on Apple products. But barring the deals on iPhones, iPads and Apple Watch, we didn’t find any irresistible offer on the Macbooks or accessories. Here are some deals worth checking out.
Apple iPhone 7 (32GB)
Rs47,999 (earlier price Rs60,000)
The iPhone 7 with 32GB storage is available at Rs47,999 after a discount of 20%. Flipkart is also offering an exchange offer where you can save up to Rs19,000 more on your old smartphone. This potentially brings the price down to Rs28,990. This deal is available on older iPhones up to iPhone 6s Plus and Android devices such as Google Pixel, Nexus 6P, LG G4 and OnePlus 3T. The offer is valid on gold, black, jet black and rose gold colour variants of the iPhone 7. This iPhone runs the A10 chip, iOS 10 and offers a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1,334x750p.
Apple iPhone 7 Plus (128GB)
Rs70,899 (earlier Rs82,000)
The 128GB variant of the iPhone 7 Plus is now selling at a discount of 13%. The deal is valid on only black, jet black and silver variants. There is an exchange offer too on older smartphones and you can save another Rs19,000 on it. The exchange offer is applicable on all smartphones that are eligible for the iPhone 7 offer. The iPhone 7 Plus has a 5.5-inch (1,920x1,080p) display and it is powered by Apple’s latest A10 chip. The smartphone comes with dual 12-megapixel cameras with an aperture of f/1.8 and optical image stabilisation.
Apple iPhone SE
If the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are too big in terms of sheer size, you can consider the iPhone SE which offers a much smaller 4-inch screen with a resolution of 1,136x640p. The phone was launched at Rs39,000, and after a few price cuts in the last few months was selling at Rs26, 999. In the ongoing Flipkart sale, it is available at Rs20,999 and you can save up to Rs19,000 more here too on exchange with all older smartphones mentioned earlier. The iPhone SE has the same design language as the older iPhones such as iPhone 5s, but runs on a more powerful A9 chip which has been used in the likes of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
Macbook Pro 13
The Macbook Pro 13 is available at a 5% discount on Axis Bank credit cards. You can also save up to Rs15,000 on exchange with old laptops. This is the non-touch bar variant and runs on Intel Core i5 processor with 8GB RAM and offers 256GB SSD. It has a screen size of 13-inch display with resolution of 2,560x1,600p. It weighs just 1.3kg and has a bigger touchpad than the predecessor.
Apple iPad Pro (32GB Wi-Fi)
Rs46,455 (earlier Rs49,900)
The 9.7-inch screen size variant of the iPad Pro with 32GB internal storage is selling at a discount of 6%. But there is an additional discount of 5% on Axis Bank credit cards. This means you can buy the iPad Pro for Rs43,960. The iPad Pro has a 9.7-inch Retina display with resolution of 2,048x1,536. It is one of the slimmest and lightest tablets in the market with a thickness of just 6.1mm and weight of 437g. It runs iOS 10 and supports Apple Pencil as well.
Apple Watch 38mm
Rs18,900 (earlier Rs25,900)
Flipkart is offering a 27% direct price cut on the first generation 38mm variant of Apple Watch. There is another 5% off on Axis Bank credit cards. It is a stylish looking watch with woven nylon straps and a metal case made of Series 7000 aluminium. It has a digital crown on the side which functions as the home button. You can also control it with voice command using Siri. It runs the latest Watch OS 3 and can be used to keep track of activities, exercises and calories burned.
Beats Solo 2 headphone
Rs10,199 (earlier Rs18,000)
The 43% discount on the Beats Solo 2 wireless headphone for Apple iPhones, iPads and iPods has brought its price down considerably. If you add the 5% extra discount on Axis Bank credit cards, you can get it for less than Rs10,000. It is an over-the-ear headphone with built-in noise cancellation feature.
