Apple has officially slashed the price of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus smartphones in India by up to Rs. 22,000 in India. It has also slashed the price of iPhone SE by Rs. 5000 in the country. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus smartphones were launched in India starting at Rs. 62000 and Rs. 72000, respectively back in October last year. The iPhone SE was launched in India this April starting at Rs. 39,000.
The price of the iPhone 6s 128GB model is now Rs. 60,000, down from the launch price of Rs. 82,000 and the iPhone 6s Plus 128GB model now costs Rs. 70,000, down from the launch price of Rs. 92,000. The iPhone SE 64GB model now costs Rs. 44,000, down from the launch price of Rs. 49,000.
Even though Apple sets a standard MRP, some third-party retailers sell the smartphones at cheaper rate. Online retailers are yet to start selling the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone SE phones at the new price.
The new move might be due to the arrival of the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones that will launch in India on October 7th starting at Rs. 60,000. Apple is also removing the 16GB and 64GB variants of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus smartphones, which will be available only in 32GB storage and 128 GB storage options from next month.
