Apple has increased the prices of its devices following this year’s Union Budget announcement. To recall, the 2018-19 union budget hiked the import duty on phones from 15 percent to 20 percent. This increase in price is seen in almost all of Apple’s devices save for the iPhone SE, which is manufactured in India.

The Apple iPhone X now starts at Rs 95,390, while the 256GB variant now costs Rs 1,08,930. The iPhone 8 Plus now starts at Rs 77,560, while the 256GB variant is priced at Rs 91,110. Similarly, the iPhone 8 64GB and 256GB now start at Rs 67,940 and Rs 81,500 respectively. It should be noted that the iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone 8 were launched at Rs 89,000, Rs 73,000 and Rs 64,000 respectively.

Apple’s previous generation smartphones, the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7, now start at Rs 62,840 and Rs 52,370 respectively. The 128GB variants of the two phones now cost Rs 72,060 and Rs 61,560 respectively. As for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 Plus. The standard 32GB variant of the two phones now starts at Rs 52,240 and Rs 42,900 respectively. The 128GB variants now costs Rs 61,450 and Rs 52,100.

Back in December, Apple had increased the prices of its phones after the government had hiked the import tax from 10 to 15 percent. The reason for both the hikes has been an effort to boost the ‘Make in India’ initiative and increase local manufacturing of devices and components. 

The new budget would also affect the prices of other devices such as TVs, wearables, PCBs and even Cars. To know which device are affected, click here.
