Every year when Apple launches a new iPhone, more eyes wait for the price cuts in the already existing Apple phones. As expected, when Apple launched its newest series iPhone X and two iPhone 8 models on Tuesday night, prices of iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus saw a huge dip, even in India. Given that the new iPhone models will take some time to arrive in India, opting for these affordable options isn’t a bad idea. According to a report by Gadgets 360, the old versions of iPhone have seen a price cut of up to Rs 7,200.As per the report, the iPhone 6s, the 32GB and 128GB storage variants of the smartphone which was earlier available for Rs 46,900 and Rs 55,900 in India, are now being offered at Rs. 40,000 and Rs. 49,000 respectively. On the other hand, the iPhone 6 Plus, the 32GB and 128GB storage variants of the handset which were priced at Rs 56,100 and Rs 65,000 will now be available at Rs 49,000 and Rs 58,000 respectively.
iPhone 7 price has seen the biggest decline among the older models. The 32GB storage variant of the smartphone was earlier available for Rs 56,200 can now be purchased for only Rs 49,000 while the 128GB variant which was priced at Rs 65,200, can now be purchased for Rs 58,000. This means the price of this phone is down by Rs 7,200.
Meanwhile, Apple launched three iPhones including iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus at an event on Apple’s new campus, at the Steve Jobs Theater on Tuesday. Apart from this, Apple also revealed the upgrades for the Apple Watch, Apple TV and Airpod wireless headphones.
If the reports are to be believed, the iPhone X will be available in India at a starting price of Rs 89,000 while the 256GB variant will cost you a little over Rs 1 lakh. Going by this, buying iPhone 7 or iPhone 6 for half the price, would not be a bad idea at all.
