Apple has lowered the starting price of its iPhone 8 and iPhone XR models by $150.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone XR now start at $449 and $599, respectively.
Will iPhone XR price drop?
Coinciding with the introduction of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, Apple is dropping the price of the iPhone XR to $599. That’s a $150 price cut compared to its original price of $749. Meanwhile, the iPhone 8 will stick around at $449. That’s down from $599.
Why did iPhone XR price drop?
Apple had to increase the launch price of the new iPhones last September due to depreciation of the rupee against the dollar and 20% import duties since it does not manufacture its flagship models in India. However, Apple will not change the sticker price or maximum retail price (MRP) of the iPhone XR in India.
Will the current iPhone Price Drop?
The best thing you can do right now is to wait to buy a new iPhone. Apple is expected to introduce new models in September, which means it will drop the price of older phones. If you don’t need the latest and greatest, you can save money by buying this year’s model at a discount.
Is it good to buy iPhone XR now?
The XR is a great phone, great hardware with great software, it’s what Apple is known for. Now if you already have an iPhone X, then no, it’s not worth it because in some ways it will be a step down, you’ll trade the OLED display for an LCD and 2 rear cameras for just one.
