Apple has rejigged the pricing of its iPhone and Apple Watch models in India following the customs duty hike announced last week during the Union Budget 2018. With this move, Apple becomes the first mobile company to increase the iPhone and Apple Watch prices to keep up with the new tax regime. An increase of up to 3.6 percent has been levied on the iPhone models while the Apple Watch prices have been revised to up to 8.3 percent. However, the price of iPhone SE, which is now assembled in India, remains the same.

While presenting the Budget 2018 last week, FM Arun Jaitley delivered a shock to the mobile phone companies in India by raising the customs duty to 20 percent from 15 percent, which was hiked from 12 percent in December last year. Post the customs duty hike, the mobile phones and other electronic products, which are not manufactured in India, are set to see a price hike.
