Apple iPhone 8, X for Rs 64,000 onwards in India

Apple enthusiasts in India will be able to get the latest iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus from September 29 — a week after they start retailing in the U.S — while the top-end iPhone X will debut here on November 3.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will be available for Rs 64,000 onwards whereas the iPhone X starts at Rs 89,000.

Consumers have more reason to cheer as the Cupertino- based company has also slashed prices of previous generation handsets — iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus — by as much as Rs 8,300.

The latest instalment from Apple will compete head-on with the ‘Note 8’ of Samsung that will be available in India from September 21 for Rs 67,900.

The iPhone X, which marks the 10-year anniversary of the launch of the first iPhone, will make its way into India from November 3 — the same day as the US.

Packed with features like facial recognition and super retina display, the iPhone X is the “biggest leap forward since the original iPhone”, according to Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Consumers looking for more affordable options in the Apple ecosystem can opt for iPhone 7 (32GB) that will now be available for Rs 49,000 (cheaper by Rs 7,200) or iPhone 7 Plus (32GB) for Rs 59,000, a reduction of Rs 8,300.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (available in 64GB and 256GB variants) will reach countries like the U.S on September 22 but will be available at Apple resellers in India from September 29, Apple said in a statement.
