Apple India slashes ‘official’ prices of iPhone 5s 16GB and 32GB model

After announcing the next generation iPhones last Tuesday, it seems that Apple has now lowered the prices of the iPhone 5s 16 GB and 32 GB models,according to Mumbai based  retailer Mahesh Telecom.

At its event at the Flint Center, the Cupertino tech-giant had announced that the 16GB and 32GB variants of iPhone 5s will remain available in the market, along with iPhone 5c 8GB. However, there was no word on the revised prices of the these models at the event.

The iPhone 5s’ 32GB model has been lowered from ₹62,500 to ₹49,500 while the  16GB model has come down from ₹53500 to ₹44500, according to a tweet by Mahesh Telecom’s twitter handle.

Interested buyers can, however, purchase the iPhone 5s 16 GB for as low as around ₹37000 at Amazon India, while the same model retails for  about ₹36000 at Flipkart.

There is no word whether or not Apple will start a buyback offer for iPhone 5s, like it did for iPhone 5c earlier this year. However, the 8GB iPhone 5c can be purchased for ₹24,000 via online retailers without the buyback offer.

Apple, on September 9, posted on its India website that iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be launched in the country on September 26, later changing the date to October 17. However, it then removed the launch date from the India website altogether and has since not given an official statement regarding the rollout of the new iPhones in the country.
