Apple has not managed to create its magic with the 2019 iPhone lineup, but the least expensive variant of the trio – the iPhone XR – has earned more hearts than its siblings. If you are also considering the iPhone XR for its new form factor, its specifications and its configuration, it may be time to get one, because an unofficial price reduction on the Popular iPhone has been announced.
Apple has not yet confirmed the price drop in its stores, but the information comes from the Mahesh Telecom retailer, based in Mumbai, via a tweet, which indicated the new prices of the three variants of the iPhone's storage. XR. According to the retailer, the 64GB variant of the iPhone XR is available at 70,500 rupees, or 6,400 rupees less than its usual price.
If you're looking for more storage, the 128GB and 256GB variants of the iPhone XR are also available at a discounted price of 75,500 Rs and 85,900 Rs, respectively. The initial price of the iPhone XR was Rs 76,900 and Rs 91,900 for the high-end variant.
It is unclear whether Apple will officially announce the price cut for its iPhone XR in India, but a quick study shows that online retailers like Flipkart are also selling the iPhone XR at its introductory price. It is also unclear whether offline retailers other than Mahesh Telecom are selling the new iPhone at a discounted price.
The price cut on the iPhone XR comes shortly after the announcement by Apple's CEO, Tim Cook, when calling the company's first-quarter results, which suggested price adjustments on new iPhones in markets where prices were exorbitant. Could iPhone XS and iPhone XS Plus benefit from similar price reductions? Only time will tell.
But the iPhone XR is a more popular choice for consumers and a price drop, even if it's not major, is a welcoming move. Affordable pricing compared to the iPhone XS series without compromising too much on key specifications makes the iPhone XR a worthy package. All this contributed to the iPhone XR becoming Apple's best-selling iPhone last November.
