Apple India has slashed prices of the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 4 as it prepares for the launch of the iPhone 5 in India. The iPhone 4S, which was earlier available for Rs 44,500 is now available for Rs 41,500. Unlike every year when Apple used to bring a 8GB variant of the previous generation model, the iPhone 4S would continue to sport 16GB storage that explains the marginal price drop.
The bigger deal would be the iPhone 4 8GB that has been dropped to Rs 28,300 from Rs 37,900. This would finally make an iPhone with a decent camera and good specifications available at an affordable price. The iPhone 3GS has been discontinued.
Coming to the iPhone 5 launch date, we are still not comfortable with pegging a date as we are yet to get any credible inputs from proven sources. All we can say at the moment is it is likely to launch in November before Diwali. We will keep you posted as and when we get more credible information.
