Apple is offering customers in India the chance to pick up a free pair of AirPods when they buy a new iPhone 11. Available via the newly opened Indian Apple Store, the deal will kick off on October 17 as Apple celebrates Diwali.
However, as the Times of India points out, this isn't likely to be the only deal in town once Diwali kicks into gear. With that in mind, it's probably worth keeping an eye on deals offered by carriers – especially as they try to move iPhone 11 inventory following the iPhone 12 announcement.
Apple rarely offers discounts on products but instead chooses to bundle other items in as a way to sweeten the deal. AirPods are often a prime example of that, as is the case here.
