Apple’s officially released the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in India and several other countries including Greece, Russia, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Iceland, and Qatar. The former’s 64GB model goes for Rs 64000 and 256GB option for Rs 77000. The latter opts for Rs 73000 and Rs 86000 price tags, respectively.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are being sold via both online and offline outlets. On the online side of things, Flipkart is offering up to Rs 15300 off upon exchange, Rs 3000 more than usual. There’s also a 1-year Buyback Guarantee valued at up to Rs 33000 in exchange for a Rs 99 fee.
Amazon India is promising to strike off up to Rs 10000 off in exchange for older smartphones, plus an extra Rs 3000 on exchanging any iPhone. It’s also bundling in Jio’s 70% buyback scheme and a Rs 8000 cashback for Citibank cards. However, both deals can’t be combined and are available on separate listings for each iPhone 8 variant.
Consumers can choose to avail the Reliance Jio and Citibank offer through the brand’s site, Reliance Digital, and Jio Stores. The 70% buyback is based on the cost of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus excluding taxes. The amount will be handed over after a year in the form of vouchers. Moreover, buyers will have to stick to a Rs 799 or above plan for 12 months.
