Older iPhone models see price cut after iPhone XS launch; iPhone 6, SE likely to be discontinued1 min read . Updated: 13 Sep 2018, 06:00 PM IST
The iPhone models receiving price cuts are iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus
While Apple unveiled the three successors to previous year’s iPhone X, its previous generation smartphones — iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus — have all received price cuts in typical Apple fashion.
Unlike the US market, where the iPhone X was entirely discontinued, the Indian variant of the iPhone X will also get a price cut like its older siblings.
Apple iPhone: Price cuts
Starting with the “latest" outgoing version of iPhones, the 64GB version of the iPhone X now sells at ₹ 91,900 while the 256GB version sells at ₹ 1,06,900 — a price cut of roughly ₹ 4,000 and ₹ 1,000, respectively.
iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus
The iPhone 8 lineup will now sell at ₹ 59,900 for the 64GB model, while the 256GB version will sell at ₹ 74,900. The iPhone 8 Plus, on the other hand, will sell at ₹ 69,900 for the 64GB variant and ₹ ₹ 84,900 for the 256GB variant.
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, released in 2015, have seen a price drop as well. The iPhone 7 now costs ₹ 39,900 for the 32GB variant and ₹ 49,900 for the 128GB variant while the iPhone 7 Plus now sells for ₹ 39,900 for the 32GB variant and ₹ 49,900 for the 128GB variant.
iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus
The oldest of the lot, the iPhone 6S is selling at ₹ 29,900 for 32GB variant while the 128GB variant now costs ₹ 39,900. The taller sibling, the iPhone 6S, now sells for ₹ 34,900 and ₹ 44,900 for the 32GB and 128GB variants, respectively.
What about the iPhone 6 and iPhone SE?
Apple India’s official website has no mention of prices of the iPhone 6 and iPhone SE, so it will be fair to assume that Apple is discontinuing the two devices. However, official confirmation is yet to be received from Apple on this matter.
