Recently Apple unveiled its flagship iPhone 12 series. With the launch of new iPhones, the Cupertino based brand permanently slashed the prices of older models including the iPhone 11, iPhone XR and even the iPhone SE 2020.
E-commerce portals Flipkart and Amazon are conducting Big Billion Days and Great Indian Festival sales from October 16th and 17th respectively. Now the former has teased the discounted prices of the iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone XR and iPhone SE 2020 during the sale period. Amazon also revealed the discounted price of iPhone 11 base variant.

After Apple’s official price cut, the iPhone SE 2020 that debuted earlier this year now starts at Rs 39,900 for the base variant which is Rs 2,600 lower than the launch price. However, as a part of the Big Billion Days Sale, the smartphone will carry a starting price tag of Rs 25,999. Flipkart says that it is offering 39 percent off but we found that the sale price is calculated on the launch price of Rs 42,500.
Last year’s flagship iPhone 11 Pro 64GB gets a price drop of Rs 19,900 making it retail at Rs 79,999 instead of Rs 99,900 during the sale period. It’s worth noting that Apple has officially discontinued the iPhone 11 Pro but it will be available for purchase from e-commerce portals and third-party sellers, at least till stocks run out.
As for the 2018 flagship iPhone XR, the smartphone will be available from Rs 37,999 instead of Rs 47,900. This makes it cheaper by Rs 9,900 during the sale.
Apart from the revealed sale prices, customers shopping on Flipkart can also avail additional discounts in form of bank offers including 10 percent discount on SBI cards, no-cost EMI and PayTM cashback.
Coming to Amazon’s iPhone 11 price during the Great Indian Festival sale, the base variant i.e. 64GB will be available for Rs 47,999. This is Rs 6,900 less than the recently revised price of Rs 54,900. Buyers will also be eligible for exchange offers, no-cost EMIs and 10 percent instant discount on HDFC bank cards.
Separately, Apple is also running a Diwali offer through its newly-launched online store from October 17th. The brand is offering free AirPods to customers purchasing the iPhone 11 starting at Rs 54,900. Apple hasn’t revealed which generation AirPods it will bundle with the smartphone but it seems like a good deal even if they are 1st gen AirPods that are priced at Rs 14,900.
