With the latest iPhones slated to arrive early next month, Apple is looking to clear out inventory of its older models. It first started by making the iPhone 4 available at just Rs 21,000 for the 8GB model and now, the 4S model has been given the same treatment. The handset is being offered officially at Rs 31,500 with 8GB of storage.
The reduction amounts to Rs 7,000 when compared to the MRP which stands at Rs 38,500. Online retailers are currently selling the 16GB variant at around Rs 36,000. There’s no word on whether the iPhone 5 will receive a reduction and it’s currently selling at Rs 45,150 with 16GB and Rs 49,907 with 32GB.
By the looks of things, Apple seems to be implementing a step process to clear stock by first cutting the price of the iPhone 4 and now the 4S and probably the 5 in the near future. The iPhone 5S and 5C recently went official for India and the company as well as carriers has also divulged the retail price for both handsets.
The 16GB 5S is tagged at Rs 53,500, while the 32GB and 64GB choices will sell for Rs 62,500 and Rs 71,500, respectively. Coming to the 5C, the 16GB version will go on sale for Rs 41,900 and the 32GB model for Rs 53,500. Both, Reliance and Airtel will carry the devices.
