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. Additionally, Amazon.in is offering no-cost EMI offer to customers of major banks in India, including HDFC Bank credit card holders. "The MRP on our website does not change", Apple India said in an email. Apple has finally made a decision to drop the selling price of all the three variants of iPhone XR in India which includes, the 64 GB model, that will now be sold at Rs 59,900 instead of earlier price of Rs 76,900, while the 128 GB will now be sold at Rs 64,900 from Rs 81,900 earlier and the 256 GB model will be sold at Rs 74,900 from Rs 91,900 earlier.

The iPhone XR is the most affordable iPhone in Apple's latest lineup, the other two being iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. Apple India, of late, is running similar schemes in association with channel partners and finance companies too. Apple usually slashes the price for any of its models at the time when it launches new smartphone models.

The 128GB storage model of iPhone XR will be available at a price of Rs 64,900, though the effective price will come down to Rs 58,400 for HDFC credit and debit card users.
