IndianExpress.com had earlier reported that the iPhone 6 will be coming to India by October 18 at a price of around Rs 55,000. E-commerce players like Grabmore.in are already taking pre-orders for the iPhone 6 from Indian customers.
Another interesting aspect of any new iPhone launch is the price cut on earlier models. That is where usually Apple rakes in a lot of volume.
