Apple is expected to launch a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch variants of the iPhone 6 this year. The new iPhones will feature some design changes including curved edges, a power button on the side rather on the right top-corner and elongated volume rocker instead of the circular volume buttons. Apple is also said to be using Sapphire for the display, which will make it nearly indestructible. It could also introduce features like optical image stabilization and higher storage capacities on the bigger iPhone 6. Also Read - Patna High Court issues tender to buy iPhone 13 Pro for all judges

The 23 percent drop in iPhone 5S price might be tempting but should you buy it? Considering the iPhone 6 is just around the corner and keeping in mind the precedence of earlier iPhone launches, we could expect the iPhone 6 to be available in India ideally around Diwali. Whenever Apple introduces a new iPhone, it also slashes the price of the older generation iPhone.

Unless you are desperate to to buy a new iPhone right now, we suggest you wait it out. Not only would you be able to decide between the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 5S, but you will also be likely to get the iPhone 5S at a better price than what it is currently available for, in case you believe the iPhone 5S is good enough for you.
