Other than offering discount on its phones, Apple is also looking to manufacture its smartphones in India at Bengaluru and Chennai. "It is unlikely it can go back to the earlier MRP regime for iPhone XR in India now, since it will then be hard to attract consumers after this drop", said an executive. The iPhone XR carries an MRP of Rs 76,900 in India, though post the discount, it is available at Rs 59,900. After things settled, and in order to compete with companies such as Huawei, the Cupertino tech giant reduced its iPhone XR prices in China. The prices for non-HDFC Bank customers will be Rs. 64,900 (earlier Rs. 81,900) and Rs. 74,900 (earlier Rs. 91,900) respectively.

The latest water resistant phone, iPhone XS and XS Max were launched in September in India at 13% mark-up price from the previous model.

Before we get to the details of today's price decrease, you'll be intrigued to know that the reason Apple's removed 3D Touch on the iPhone XR has to do with the gadget's display.

The HDFC cashback is valid for both debit and credit card holders, and if you don't have an eligible card yet, you can pick one up to avail the discount on the iPhone XR. - Apple's 25% off saving deal is a 'short-term promotional offer, ' with no official mentioning as too when/if the promotion will end. The iPhone has proven to be a tough sell in the price-sensitive market.

Messi Is Not God! - Pope Francis
During the summer of 2013, Messi and the rest of the Albiceleste squad took in a meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican. Speaking about Messi's skill, Pope Francis said: "Of course, he brings happiness, but he isn't God".

The price cut isn't yet live on Apple.com but is reportedly being offered in authorized reseller stores in the country.

Apple Inc has cut prices of one of its latest iPhones in India by around one-fourth, sources said, as the US tech giant looks to boost sales in the world's second-biggest smartphone market following a similar move in China. This price range also puts Apple's lowest priced iPhone in direct competition with Samsung's newly launched Galaxy S10 flagship, along with OnePlus and other Chinese flagships.

But with a share of just 1 percent of India's entire smartphone market, Apple responded a year ago by revamping its sales and distribution strategy.

While consumers rejoice over this price cut, Apple has sent a loud and clear message.
