Apple, which officially launched its creative flagship devices, viz the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus way back on 9 September in the United States, now seems to have remembered its loyal user base in India. The Cupertino-based company has finally announced pre-bookings and release date of both its latest iPhone smartphone offerings in the country.
According to an Indian Express report, people looking at buying the 4.7in iPhone 6 and the 5.5in iPhone 6 Plus can pre-order both the smartphones starting 7 October.
The Indian Express report also states that people can expect to see both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in brick-and-mortar retail stores in India starting 18 October.
What is the price of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and Where to pre-order?
Prospective buyers can pre-order the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus from e-commerce site Grabmore which is offering free shipping. Click here to navigate to the e-shopping portal now.
On the portal, a 16GB variant of Apple's iPhone 6 is priced at Rs 55,000 ($893, £558), whereas the iPhone 6 Plus 16GB variant has a price tag of Rs 60,000 (£608, $974).
For buyers preferring higher internal storage, there is the 64GB iPhone 6 that has a price tag of Rs 63,000 (£639, $1023) and the iPhone 6 Plus costing Rs 68,000 (£690, $1104).
Grabmore is also offering a 128 GB iPhone 6 for Rs 68,000 (£690, $1104), and the iPhone 6 Plus for Rs 74,000 (£750, $1201).
With Apple already battling increased demand and lower stocks in countries such as the US, buyers in India looking at buying Apple's latest creative flagships by walking in to physical retail stores post 17 October should expect comparatively lower stocks of both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
However, a positive side in the above scenario would likely be that the newer stocks of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will not bend in user pockets. There have been various reports that suggest users have found that Apple's smartphones bend when kept inside trouser pockets.
