We have a good news and a bad news for all Indian Apple Fans. The good news is that the latest iPhones viz. iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C can now be preordered via eBay India. And the bad news is that it is not even close to cheap in any sense. In fact seeing the price, the quote of new iPhone 5C being the cheaper version of iPhone seems to be a cheap joke. And about the iPhone 5S price in India, well you definitely do not want to hear.
iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S price in India has been listed as follows.
iPhone 5C 16GB price in India – 41,900INR
iPhone 5C 32GB price in India – 53,500INR
iPhone 5S 16GB price in India – 53,500INR
iPhone 5S 32GB price in India – 62,500INR
iPhone 5S 64GB price in India – 71,500INR
The cheaper version still costs more than the iPhone 5 at present. iPhone 5 has been discontinued as per our knowledge as they both seem to bear the same specs. And the iPhone 5S price in india as expected seems to take away everything you might have planned for with your money. No doubt the technologies iPhone’s brand new version are packed up with is really amazing and so is the price.
The shipping of iPhone models in India will be starting from 1st October 2013.
Update : iPhone 5S and 5C official Launch Date has been scheduled for 1st November, 2013.
We would like to make it clear that there is no any official announcement on this. The price has been officially announced. Now it’s totally up to if you want to consider going for that hefty price.
iPhone 5S is no doubt the most advanced smartphone. This time Apple brings three major improvements over its predecessors other than all those small tiny miny tweaking. iPhone 5S price in india may be hefty but it is also the first smartphone running on a 64 bit processor. Being the first of this kind along with the premium build quality offered by Apple the price is self explanatory. It comes with ahighly improved ccamera and not to forget about the TouchID. The iPhone 5S is available in three color variants i.e. Gold, SpaceGrey and Grey.

Update : Official price has been updated in the beginning of the article.
Based on Apple claim which said that by the end of 2013 iPhone will be available in more than 100 countries, we expect it to be available by December in all Apple stores in India. About the pricing we have always seen great price cuts in iPhone models and seeing the price at present (in eBay), we might say that it will something less than that. At that price it would be very hard for Apple to do business of the new iPhone variants especially for iPhone 5S. That is the reason we asked to wait till you get any official comment on this as you might get a lower price than the scary price tag which we are seeing at present.
