  • Apple Cuts iPhone XR Prices by 25% in India

The 10% cashback on iPhone XR is available only on HDFC Bank Debit and Credit Cards.

While this is not a permanent price drop or MRP change on the iPhone XR, Apple said that it is a limited term promotional offer which starts on Friday, April 5. Apple's authorized e-commerce partners like Flipkart and Amazon India are already offering the iPhone XR models at a discounted rate. iPhone XR, 64 GB variant, for example, is available at Rs 69,499 or at Rs 7,499 less than its MRP. iPhone XR 128 GB models are available at Rs 74,999 - Rs 6,901 less than its stated MRP of Rs 81,900.

Now, a report from Reuters is claiming that after China, Apple has also reduced iPhone XR prices in India. The HDFC cashback will be offered to customers who swipe the complete amount in one go. Prospective buyers can also avail no-cost EMI loans from Bajaj Finance and HDFC Bank Consumer Loans. The iPhone XR was launched in October as the most "affordable" iPhone of 2018.

"To see the stadium, watch the stadium and play with the stadium, for me is an fantastic experience". Now we need to touch the glory of lifting trophies", he said.

As for the pricing, the iPhone XR 64GB variant is now available for Rs. 59,900 on Amazon.in following the price cut.

The latest water resistant phone, iPhone XS and XS Max were launched in September in India at 13% mark-up price from the previous model. The iPhone XR is powered by Apple's A12 Bionic chipset. There's a single 12MP camera at the back whereas for selfies there's a 7MP sensor at the front. The discount definitely makes the iPhone XR an attractive proposition especially against newer 2019 Android flagships like the Galaxy S10 series and the upcoming Huawei P30 Pro. The company will soon begin assembling its top-end phones through the local unit of Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd (Foxconn), Reuters previously reported. As a result, iPhone XE would feature a 4.8-inch OLED display with a notch, just like the other modern-generation iPhones, with an edge-to-edge design and Face ID.

The price reduction comes after iPhone prices were lowered in China for the second time this year, as Apple wrestles with a prolonged sales slowdown in the world's largest smartphone market partly due to a slowing economy.
