Buying an iPhone just became pretty Affordable

iPhone 5C 27,280 32,500 41,000 N/A

While some of you may know the iPhone 5C has gotten a 8GB model offering few months ago, what you might not know is that its not only the 16 GB iPhones that have got cheaper but the prices have come down evenly across all models.

In India its not usual for the sellers to drop the prices of the last gen iPhones in the anticipation of the new one, it usually happens after the next one arrives to the sellers, its only few years when Apple launched iPhone 4 worldwide, Indian carriers launched iPhone 3Gs at that time, and few months later when the iPhone 4 was launched in India the iPhone 3Gs price didn’t fall but iPhone 4 came at a higher price point. But due to the rallying performance of Apple sales in the past 2 years, and iPhone 5S going sold out in the first few weeks of its launch, the sellers are expecting a similar performance from the upcoming iPhone.

Cons for going for the iPhone 4S

  • The price difference from the bigger and faster iPhone 5C with same storage capacity is not much
