- iPhone 7 Plus starts in India at Rs. 72,000
- You will need to pay Rs. 10,000 to jump to the next storage variant
- Apple has slashed prices of older iPhone models as well
Apple on Thursday updated its website to reveal the price in India of the entire iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus lineup.
The iPhone 7 Plus starts at Rs. 72,000 for the 32GB variant, compared to Rs. 60,000 for the iPhone 7 variant with same storage, a price tag that was revealed by Apple last week. The price jump to the next storage variant remains at Rs. 10,000, which means you can get your hands on 128GB iPhone 7 for Rs. 70,000, while Rs. 80,000 will get you the 256GB smaller iPhone. The 128GB iPhone 7 Plus will cost Rs. 82,000, while the top of the line 256GB iPhone 7 Plus will cost Rs. 92,000.
As announced earlier, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will go on sale in India from October 7. While some retailers have been taking unofficial pre-bookings for the latest iPhone models, with the price of the entire iPhone 7 range revealed, the official pre-bookings can now begin in earnest.
Apple has also slashed the prices for iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE. With the 64GB model discontinued, the 128GB variant of the previous generation 6s and 6s Plus is now effectively Rs. 22,000 cheaper than last week at Rs. 60,000 and Rs. 70,000 respectively. The base 32GB models (up from 16GB previously) have a new price tag as well, at Rs. 50,000 for the iPhone 6s and Rs. 60,000 for the iPhone 6s Plus, an effective price cut of Rs. 12,000 each, and you also get double the storage.
The 64GB iPhone SE will now be available at Rs. 44,000, a price cut of Rs. 5,000, but the price of the entry-level iPhone SE remains unchanged at Rs. 39,000. This variant also sticks out like a sore thumb as the only iOS device listed on Apple’s website that still ships with 16GB of storage.
While the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone 5s have reached ‘end of life’, to use Apple’s terminology, as we reported earlier, they will continue to be sold until stocks remain. There’s no word on any official repricing of these models yet, which have been removed from Apple’s website, but we will update you as and when we receive any information from our sources.
