IPhone X users spend $999 on a phone they can't answer

IPhone X users spend $999 on a phone they can't answer

According to those familiar with the iOS roadmap, Apple had planned to completely overhaul the homescreen of the iPhone - replacing the grid of icons that now confronts users.

But Apple boss Tim Cook said the X model had "surpassed our expectations and has been our top-selling iPhone every week since it shipped in November". Whereas the 256GB model was previously retailing at Rs.1,05,720 and it is now priced at Rs 1,08,930.

"This measure will promote creation of more jobs in the country".

The priciest iPhone ever features A11 bionic chipset under the hood, a 5.8-inch OLED edge to edge panel, no fingerprint sensor and Face ID to compensate for the lack of it.

Apple confirmed the new prices of iPhones and informed retailers the price increase would be effective starting 8 AM today.

Last December too, when import duty on smartphones was increased to 15% from 10%, iPhone prices in India were increased. The iPhone 8 Plus is available for Rs 67,990 for the 64GB variant, which is pretty lower than the revised price of Rs 77,650.

Nearly all iPhone models are affected by the second price hike from Apple, with the average increase being 3%.

It's not very hard to believe this news as Apple is making massive efforts for 2018 and a number of reports regarding Apple's other products are looming in the landscape.

Both the iPhone 8 Plus models have experienced a 2.8% price hike. The 32GB variant of iPhone 7 essentially gets a 3.1 percent hike in price.The iPhone 7 with 128GB storage will cost Rs 61,560 compared to the earlier official price of Rs 59,910. The price of iPhone X will now be Rs 95,000 for its 64GB variant. The prices of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s have also increased significantly. iPhone 6 will now be priced at Rs 31,900 while iPhone 6s will cost Rs 42,900.

The Apple Watch will also be costlier by roughly 7.9%, as customs duty on smartwatches and wearables too have been hiked in the Budget.
