Even if the exiting iPhone 5S is the latest and most expensive Apple handset you will be able to buy until November this year, its price has seen a huge drop to Rs 32000 now. Over a week ago, we were telling you about the iPhone 5S and 5C getting their costs slashed to as low as Rs 36500 and Rs 23500 owing to the imminent arrival of the iPhone 6.
But these details on the iPhone 5S and 5C smartphones was soon followed by news that supply shortages could lead to the availability of the two new iPhone devices being pushed back to mid-November in spite of the official announcement declaring their release date as October 17 for India. It’s not just fans here who are feeling the disappointment, but those in the list of initial launch countries have also been asked to have a little more patience, especially if they’re after the iPhone 6 Plus.
At the moment, Amazon India appears to have the best offer on the 16GB iPhone 5S though we’re talking about the gold version here. At the time of writing this post, we found Flipkart to have the cheapest deal of Rs 23839 on the 8GB iPhone 5C as long as you don’t mind the color blue. If you’re not really in a hurry to buy a new handset, let the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch Apple smartphones come and then you might be able to get the brand’s last year’s offerings at even lower rates.
In other news related to Apple, an unnamed Saudi Arabian man has allegedly asked for an iPhone 6 as dowry from his sister’s suitor. This is the first time that Cupertino will be establishing its official retail presence in the Middle East and directly supplying its devices to authorized retailers. So the would-be groom will luckily have to pay a little less than usual for the iOS smartphone since its sales won’t involve middlemen.
