After launching iPhone XR and iPhone XS premium phones, Apple India has dropped the price of its older smartphones, including iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus. The official Apple website reflects the new price list.
Interestingly enough, the website has removed the prices for models like iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone SE. It is worth noting that Apple has reportedly discontinued select handsets including iPhone X, iPhone 6S and iPhone SE in the US. The company is unlikely to discontinue its older smartphones in India anytime sooner considering older iPhone models are more popular than the new ones. Moreover, Apple locally assembles iPhone SE and iPhone 6S models in India.
