iPhone 6s, 6s Plus And iPhone SE Get Price Cuts Of Upto Rs. 22000
After the huge success of the iPhone 7 prior to its official launch in India, Apple India is trying to sell off it’s old stock of the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and the iPhone SE which was launched early 2016. The price cuts are significant, however, understanding the reasoning behind it, even more so.
One of the main reasons for the price cut, is the launch of newer variety of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, which was announced along side the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus which will now be available in only a 32GB storage and 128 GB storage capacity seem to haver a newer-gen of the same chip which is said to be more battery efficient and a higher quality of the Nand Flash.
Apple India has discounted the current stocks of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus by upto Rs. 22000 (for the 128 GB iPhone 6s Plus) to eliminate the existing stocks. Apple will sell the new variants with the 32 GB and 128 GB capacities for renewed pricing when it launched in October alongside the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Apple iPhone 6S (128GB) which is currently priced at Rs 82,000, will now be available at Rs 60,000 after a price drop of Rs 22,000. The iPhone 6s Plus (128GB) will sell at Rs 70,000 post the Rs. 22000 discount. The iPhone SE on the other hand just gets a discount of Rs. 4000 on the 64 GB variant. However the price cut is on official prices, while most sellers are already selling the iPhones at similar prices on websites like Amazon (see below.=)
If you don’t care about a more efficient chip, now is a fantastic time to buy the iPhone 6s or 6s Plus. Else, hold on for the officially renewed iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
