Apple gets the message, slashes iPhone XR prices from Friday

The report further states that Foxconn in India could manufacture the Apple iPhone XE. For the mass market, it introduced the iPhone XR, which is larger than the iPhone XS (but smaller than the iPhone XS Max) and uses an LCD instead of an OLED screen.

Apple, in collaboration with HDFC Bank, has dropped the prices of iPhone XR, 64 GB variant, by ₹17,000. The price cut comes on the heels of a similar move by the Cupertino firm in China. Apple just slashed prices on its cheaper flagship phone, the iPhone XR, which is available in the USA at $749, by around 25%, as initially reported by the Economic Times. Apple is known for surprising us every time it launches new phones, so let's be open to new developments that would occur before the company makes the iPhone SE successor official. The iPhone XR (128GB) which was launched at Rs 81,900 will be available for Rs 64,900. Thankfully, for those who were longing for the offer to come online and spare them a visit to a retail store, the limited period price cut on the iPhone XR is now live on as well. Earlier there were mostly cashback offers, no-cost financing and exchange programmes.

Apple Inc has cut prices of one of its latest iPhones in India by around one-fourth, sources said, as the US tech giant looks to boost sales in the world's second-biggest smartphone market following a similar move in China.

Accoding to the report, Wistron, which past year announced plans to invest Rs 3,000 crore in the Narasupra industrial sector in Karnataka's Kolar district, started Apple operations with assembling low-end iPhone SE and later iPhone 6S. The change in pricing of the iPhone XR is a short-term promotional offer.

But with a share of just 1 percent of India's entire smartphone market, Apple responded past year by revamping its sales and distribution strategy. However, according to analysts, Indian market is the most expensive to buy the iPhone range.

With flagship iPhones being manufactured in India, it is expected to bring the skyrocketing prices of Apple devices a little lower as it would avoid 20 percent import duties, and 30 percent of local sourcing.
