In addition to the Silver and Space Grey variations, the iPhones also come in Gold and Rose Gold colors.
With an import duty of 12.5 % on smartphones as compared to the 1% on its components, one can see why Apple, alongwith so many other global brands, are so eager to start manufacturing in India. Until then, you’ll have to make do with the exorbitant pricing unless you intend to buy an iPhone from outside India, which comes with its own headaches of course.
There are a lot of smartphones out there between INR 62,000 to INR 92,000 but the Apple iPhone has always demanded a premium price tag although it remains to be seen how loyalists react to this news.
Will you be getting an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus anytime soon?
