Apple rolls back iPhone 5S price drop in India

Apple India has rolled back the price drop it had announced on the iPhone 5S last week, multiple sources have told BGR India. Last week Apple India had announced significant price cuts on the iPhone 5S 16GB (from an MRP of Rs 53,500 to an MRP of Rs 44,500) and the iPhone 5S 32GB (from an MRP of Rs 62,500 to an MRP of Rs 49,500).

The cause of the rollback in the price drop is not known at the moment. We have reached out to Apple India to confirm the rollback in the price cuts.


Earlier Apple India had put up September 26 as the launch data of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on its website, which was later pushed to October 17 and then any mention of the launch date was removed from the website altogether. However, we are not hearing any word of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch getting delayed post October 17 though stocks might be limited initially. Apple announced it had sold a record 4 million units of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in the first 24 hours of preorders with delivery dates for some models running into November.

While brick and mortar store owners are left with iPhone 5S stock, which they had hoped to sell after the price drops were announced, the iPhone 5S continues to be available on online retailers for as low as Rs 34,899 for the iPhone 5S 16GB gold variant on Amazon India.
