iPhone 12 free AirPods offer from this week
While Flipkart will continue to sell the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini at lower prices, Apple will start its own bundle offer on its online store. If you buy the iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Mini from the Apple online store, you can get a free pair of AirPods. The offer starts from October 7 and will last until November 4 on all iPhone 12 models purchases.

For your knowledge, the iPhone 12 Mini starts at ₹59,900 on Apple’s website while the iPhone 12 starts at ₹65,900. Apple is essentially giving an discount of ₹14,900 only of you bundle any of the AirPods variants with your purchase.
Hence, you can get the standard pair of AirPods with the case for no extra cost. The wireless charging case variant will make you pay ₹4,000 extra. If you want to get the AirPods Pro, you will get a discount of ₹14,900 but you need to pay the rest of the amount.
Do note that the iPhone 12 series does not ship with a charger in the box, hence first time buyers will need to purchase the charger separately in the box.
