Apple launched its latest series of iPhone 7 in India and in other parts of the world, but the price of the premium may not be suitable for many. For these buyers, there is an alternative to stay a part of the Apple ecosystem.
The flagship Apple's 2014 iPhone 6, received a generous drop of prices in India, especially on Flipkart - one of the largest platforms for e-commerce in the country. With the latest discount on the iPhone 6, the 16GB variant costs as low as Rs 33,990 instead of Rs 36 990. But this is the right discount and additional offers and cash back in exchange that make it sweeter deal.
