Apple iPhone 7 launches in India October 7, and the final prices for the devices are already here. Apple has announced the prices for the iPhone 7 on their official India website. The starting price of the iPhone 7 will be Rs 60,000.
According to Apple’s website, iPhone 7 32GB will retail at Rs 60,000; the 128GB version at Rs 70,000, and the 256GB version at Rs 80,000. The iPhone 7 Plus on the other hand will be priced at Rs 72,000 for the 32GB variant; Rs 82,000 for the 128GB version, and Rs 92,000 for the 256GB phone.
Both versions of the iPhone 7 are running Apple’s new A10 Fusion chipset which the company claims will allow gaming at a console-level. The 4.7-inch iPhone 7 comes with a 12MP rear camera with a bigger f/1.8 aperture and Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS). The 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus features Apple’s first dual camera array, which couples a wide-angle lens with a telephoto lens – giving users 2X optical zoom when needed and the ability for 10x digital zoom.
The iPhone 7 also ditches the physical home button in favour of a redesigned home button with haptic feedback. The battery in both devices has also been increased from the previous generation. The new phones will be available in five colour options – Black, Silver, Gold, Rose Gold and Jet Black. The Jet Black colour for the iPhone 7 will only be available with the 128Gb and the 256GB versions of the phone.
Apple has done away with the 3.5mm headphone jack with the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. To connect your headphones, a user now needs to use an adapter, or use the Earpods that are shipping with the phone that will connect through the lightening adapter. The phones can also be connected wireless using Apple’s recently unveiled AirPods.
Price of the iPhone 7 32GB is Rs 2,000 cheaper than the what the iPhone 6S was introduced in India for, and this time you’re getting double the space as well. Apple announced the price for the new AirPods as Rs 15,400, and will be sold separately. EarPods with Lightning Connector are set to be priced at Rs 2,500, while the headphone jack adapter is priced at Rs 900. Apple is bundling the EardPods and adapter in the box.
Apple also recently announced a price cut for the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus as well with Rs 22,000 price drop for the 128GB models. Apple iPhone SE also got a price cut in India and now the 64GB version costs Rs 44,000.
