IPhone XR to become cheaper for Indian consumers starting tomorrow - conditions apply

Apple iPhone XR prices go as low as Rs 59,900, HDFC users get additional discounts

It has mostly given cashback offers on flagship models, and this time Apple will also run a limited period cashback offer from Friday on HDFC Bank cards, offering 10% cash back.

The Rs 91,900 256GB variant will cost Rs 74,900 for non-HDFC customers and Rs 67,400 for HDFC customers. However, the price cut has been introduced for a limited time frame - 'till the stock lasts'. "The MRP on our website does not change", Apple India said in an email.

Apple, in collaboration with HDFC Bank, has dropped the prices of iPhone XR, 64 GB variant, by ₹17,000.

The iPhone XR was widely expected to do well in price-sensitive markets like India as despite its slightly lower price tag, it offered nearly the same set of features as its bigger and more expensive iPhone XS sibling. Apple India, of late, is running similar schemes in association with channel partners and finance companies too. As for the pricing, the iPhone XE's top-end model could launch at $600 ( roughly INR 41464).

The second storage variant of 128GB is selling at Rs 64,900 for non-HDFC customers and Rs 58,400 for HDFC customers.

Foxconn, Apple's primary global component manufacturer, will begin production of iPhone X models temporarily and could scale production in its Chennai production facility if initial trials are successful. Globally, iPhone shipment dropped to 208.8 million units in 2018 from 215.8 million units in 2017, said IDC. Apple is already manufacturing iPhone 7 in Bengaluru. If it's legitimate, the part was likely stolen from a Foxconn factory, and it tells us a few things about the iPhone 11's design. The shift in strategy with cheaper Phone XR models could be a fresh start for Apple in the country that favours cheaper Chinese smartphone makers like Xiaomi and OnePlus.

In what may come as a great deal for those looking to buy an iPhone, Apple has announced a promotional offer on one of its newest smartphone.

On the other hand, a Mumbai based trailer Mahesh Telcom is coating the new iPhone XR price to be around Rs.59,500, which makes the iPhone XR price cheaper than the price what ET has reported. "It is unlikely it can go back to the earlier [maximum retail price] regime for iPhone XR in India now, since it will then be hard to attract consumers after this drop".
