Apple announced the pricing of the iPhone 15 series at the launch event on Wednesday, and there is no price hike, at least for some of the models. The standard iPhone 15 is priced at Rs. 79900 for the 128GB variant while the iPhone 15 Plus costs Rs. 89900. Both of these models are available in three storage options - 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. That means, the higher the storage option, the more you pay.
Although the iPhone 15 Pro has not received a price hike in the US and it costs $999, the same as its predecessor, its price has been bumped up in India. The iPhone 14 Pro started at Rs. 129900 for the 128GB model but the iPhone 15 Pro now costs Rs. 134900 for the same. It is available in four storage options - 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max has received the most significant price increase, however, it has also received a bump in storage and that mitigates the price hit a lot. Why? Here's why. Apple has got rid of the 128GB variant of the iPhone 15 Pro Max and now offers 256GB as the base storage option, which now costs Rs. 159900. It is available in three storage options - 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.
