Apple announces price cuts for iPhones in India


The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are now available for pre-order, starting at $699 for the 64 gigabyte (GB) version of the iPhone 8, and $799 for the iPhone 8 Plus.

This problem is similar to that of the current Touch ID, in that too many attempts results in a prompt for the passcode. So, the cost of production of the top Apple iPhone X with 256 GB of internal memory is 413 U.S. dollars, and in Russia this device will be sold in nearly 100 000.

It begs the question that, given all these must-have features in the iPhone X, why would someone choose the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus instead? "If you don't stare at the phone, it won't unlock". During the interview, Federighi explained that seeing Face ID in action is "pretty miraculous" while adding that "it just works". The pre-orders will begin from 12 am. The first variant 32GB of iPhone 6s, as well as 128GB variants too, were previously born cost Rs. 46,900 and Rs. 55,900 respectively in India, rather they are currently being available at Rs. 40,000 and Rs. 49,000, respectively. The new iPhones come with few design tweaks and upgraded innards. Apple has decided to wave off the high price of iPhone SE and make it the cheapest and affordable smartphone ever sold by the company. The new iPhone X has removed the home screen button and has put up a face recognition technology to unlock the iPhone. The cameras of iPhone 8 is capable of shooting 1080p videos in 240 frames per second.

If you are going for the entry-level variant, which offers 32GB, it can save you a lot of money.
