Apple is kicking off a massive discount on the iPhone XR in India that will bring the device down to just ₹59,900 ($870). That's a staggering ₹17,000 ($250) discount from the phone's retail price of ₹76,900 ($1,120). What makes this particular deal even better is that HDFC is getting in on the action, offering an additional 10% cashback on top of the discounted price.
That effectively brings the price of the 64GB iPhone XR down to just ₹53,900 ($780), which is a fabulous deal. The promotional price extends to all three variants of the iPhone XR, and you'll similarly be able to avail the HDFC cashback on all three models. The deal will go live from Friday, April 5, and will be valid until stocks last.
Here's the breakdown of the new pricing:
|Category||MRP||New price||For HDFC customers|
|iPhone XR (64GB)||₹76,900||₹59,900||₹53,900|
|iPhone XR (128GB)||₹81,900||₹64,900||₹58,400|
|iPhone XR (256GB)||₹91,900||₹74,900||₹67,400|
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. I'm partial to the Regalia for the airline benefits and low markup on international spends.
This is Apple's most aggressive move yet in the Indian market, and it's clear that the company is positioning the iPhone XR against Samsung's Galaxy S10e, which retails for ₹55,900 ($810). The discount will be a huge driver for iPhone XR sales in the country, and should give Apple some much-needed momentum in the premium segment.
