Apple iPhone 6s offers
The iPhone 6s (32GB) variant will set you back by Rs 46,999, and you can also avail up to Rs 23,000 off on exchanging your old smartphone, which will bring down the price to Rs 23,999. Sadly, the maximum discount is applicable on the iPhone 6s Plus model, and to get that discount and buying the iPhone 6s would mean a downgrade. The iPhone 6s (64GB) and iPhone 6s (128GB) variants are priced at Rs 59,390 and Rs 79,999, but there are not discount or exchange offers on them. Flipkart also sells iPhone 6s Plus, but there are no deals and discounts on it.
Apple iPhone 6 offers
The iPhone 6 (16GB) variant is usually priced at Rs 36,990, but with flat Rs 5,000 off from Flipkart, you can get it for Rs 31,990. Additionally, you can also avail up to Rs 20,000 off as exchange discount, bringing down the price to Rs 11,990. Ironically, the maximum discount is applicable on iPhone 6s Plus, and it makes no sense to downgrade to get an older generation phone for less. Interestingly, the iPhone 6 (64GB) on Flipkart is priced at Rs 58,7000 whereas the iPhone 6 (128GB) variant is priced at Rs 50,824, but there are no flat or exchange discounts on these SKUs. The iPhone 6 Plus is also sold by Flipkart, but there are no deals on it.
