Why the price hike?

Apple has increased the prices of the three phones due to a recent change by the Union Budget. An increase in the BCD (basic customs duty) rate and withdrawal of earlier exemption from BCD/Social Welfare Surcharge are to blame for the price hikes.

Hence, the Apple products that are manufactured here in India are not affected by the hike. These include the iPhone 11, iPhone 7 series and the iPhone XR, which are manufactured by Foxconn and Wistron in India. The prices of other Apple products like the iPad, Apple Watch and the Mac range also remain unchanged due to the hike.

In other recent news, Apple’s iPhone XR was recently revealed to be the most sold smartphone in 2019. This was followed by the base variant of the new iPhone 11 flagship series. Apple was also rumored to launch its new compact smartphone this month, likely a successor to the iPhone SE. The new phone, which will likely be called the iPhone 9 or the SE 2, however, could be delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
