Browse This Page

By now you must be aware of the Indian pricing of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Apple’s latest phones that launched in India today, 3 weeks after the US launch, are not only heavier than the previous iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but are also heavy on your pockets.

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus come at a starting price of Rs. 62,000 and Rs. 72,000, respectively for the 16 GB version. At these prices, the newest iPhones cost more in India than any other country.

If one translates the Indian pricing of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to US currency, here’s what you get.

iPhone 6s iPhone 6s Plus
16 GB $955 $1,110
64 GB $1,110 $1,265
128 GB $1,265 $1,415

The same 16 GB iPhone 6s model costs $649 in the US, which means customers in India will be shelling out $306 more for the iPhone 6s 16 GB. Similarly, the base model of the iPhone 6s Plus costs $749 in the US whereas you’ll have to pay $351 more in India.

The extravagant prices in India is likely to bring down sales for the latest iPhones. But pre-bookings for the latest devices do not seem to show any such signs. Many retailers, both online and offline, have offered major offers for the latest iPhones. Airtel is offering free 4G data on purchase of the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, while Vodafone is offering freebies worth Rs. 8,885. These offers are only some of the many promotional campaigns being seen around India.

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus may be the most expensive phones in India, but that didn’t stop fans from lining outside Apple reseller stores across the country to get their hands on the latest device. Apple CEO Tim Cook even expressed his thanks on Twitter. The excitement for the phones is still as high as ever. So, it could be that customers are willing to overlook the mighty price tag so that they can enjoy all the new features that come with the new phones.

Custom duties are same every time they release their phones. They release at same price in USA. They constantly increased prices of their phones to 10,000 bucks with each upgrade. They started with 34,000. Iphone 5S was 53000. Do you think custom increases their duties as per their new release? Hell no

That's why in India people don't usually buy iphones. Cause they prefer value for money phones ( like s6 edge) than overpriced ones.
