So, Apple announced the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch on 9th September, 2014 at California, in the US. For the Apple Watch, we'll have to wait till early 2015 in the US; definitely later than that in India. Apple has confirmed the Indian launch of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus for 17th October, 2014 (See screenshot grabbed by GSMArena from Apple's website). We decided to put out some possible estimates on the expected cost of the two models, in their various storage configurations.
We've taken the following into consideration:
- The launch prices of the iPhone 5S, 5C and the reduced-cost 8 GB iPhone 4S on 1st November 2013
- The full, off-contract prices of the iPhones
- US taxes, at 8.1%
- The exchange rate for INR vs USD at Rs. 62.21/$ on launch day of iPhone 5S (1st Nov 2013) and an estimated Rs. 60.999/$ for the iPhone 6 launch
