Apple has unveiled new three iPhones in San Jose, California. Apple’s 2018 line-up comprises of iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. But the price of the new iPhone XS series (Rs 99,900 for the base variant) and even the iPhone XR, which will start at Rs 76,900 in India, means that not everyone can afford to upgrade to the newer variants.
However, the older iPhones have seen a price-cut in India and there are several cashback and exchange offers going on as well. Keep in mind that Apple has officially reduced prices of all older iPhone models in India, and on many of the e-commerce sites the newer MRP might not be reflected.
