Apple iPhone XR, iPhone 8 series and iPhone 7 series and Apple Watch Series 3 get a price cut in India


Apple introduced iPhone 11 XS, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max at an event in the U.S. few hours back. At the event it also announced price cuts for iPhone XR, iPhone 8 series, and Apple India has also reduced the price of the models in India. This is the first official price cut on MRP for the iPhone XR since the launch last year, even though it was offered at cheaper rates with bank offers earlier this year. The iPhone XR 64GB and 128GB versions are now Rs. 27,000 cheaper.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus 64GB versions have received Rs. 20,000 price cut, after a price cut last year. There is a new 128GB version for both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. iPhone 7 series have also received a price cut, but the iPhone X series has not received any price cut. Apple Watch Series 3 has received Rs. 8000 price cut, after the price cut last year.

Even though Apple sets a standard MRP, some third-party retailers sell the smartphones at cheaper rates. So you can get it online at cheaper even after this price hike. Check out the change in price below.
