Apple Hikes iPhone Prices in India

Apple has decided to hike the maximum retail price of the entire iPhone range in India. The increase price could be the result of increase in excise duty on mobile phones imported into India, which was increased to 12.5% from existing 6% in the recent Union Budget.

According to media reports, all the iPhone ranges like iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models will become costlier by Rs.2,500. With this hike in the Apple smartphones the iPhone 6 will now start at Rs.56,000 instead of Rs.53,500 for the 16GB variant, while the 64GB and 128GB iPhone 6 variants will now be priced at Rs.65,000 and Rs.74,000 respectively.

Likewise, the 16GB iPhone 6 Plus will now cost Rs.65,000, with the 64GB and 128GB variants costing Rs.74,000 and Rs.83,000 respectively.

Not only the new iPhones, there is an impact on the older models of the iPhones. The 8GB iPhone 5c is now priced at Rs.33,500 and the iPhone 5s will now start at Rs.47,000 for the 16GB variant and Rs.51,500 for the 32GB variant.
