Bad News For Apple Lovers, iPhone Prices Increased In India

| Published on December 18, 2017

Bad news for iPhone lovers in India, the prices of Apple mobile phones have raised around 3.5 per cent with immediate effect due to the increase in custom duty on phones brought from outside India. The duty, which was earlier 10 %, has been increased to 15%. The iPhone SE is the only exception because of the reason that it is assembled in India. The new price list effective from December 18 is below:


iPhone 6 32 GB: Rs 30780
iPhone 6s 32 GB: Rs 41,550
iPhone 6s 128 GB: Rs 50,660
iPhone 6s Plus 32 GB: Rs 50,740
iPhone 6s Plus 128 GB: Rs 59,860
iPhone 7 32 GB: Rs 50,810
iPhone 7 128 GB: Rs 59,910
iPhone 7 Plua 32 GB: Rs 61,060
iPhone 7 Plus 128 GB: Rs 70,180
iPhone 8 64 GB: Rs 66,120
iPhone 8 256 GB: Rs 79,420
iPhone 8 Plus 64 GB: Rs 75,450
iPhone 8 Plus 256 GB: Rs 88,750
iPhone X 64 GB: Rs 92,430
iPhone X 256 GB: Rs 1,05,720

The prices of these phones have increased on the MRP of the phones and it is possible that the sellers will take the advantage of this by giving the old phones at updated prices. iPhones are usually not sold at MRP in the Indian market because they are available at some discounted prices except the special cases like that of iPhone X.


It is also expected that other brands will also raise the price due to the hike in custom duty. This also means that even if smartphone companies don’t increase the prices of the existing phones, the new mobile launches from the companies which manufacture outside India may cost more. According to a research, Apple imports around 88 percent of the phones that it sells in India, so the tech company did not have any option but to increase prices after the government’s decision to increase import duty on mobiles and other electronics.
