IPhone 2018 Release Date: Rumored to Come out in September?

Company also increased prices of Apple Watch by up to Rs 2,510 according to information available on Apple website

There has been an increase of up to 3.6 percent in the prices of iPhone models and up to 8.3 percent for Apple Watch variants.

Meanwhile, Apple has also come under fire from the US Department of Justice after admitting to deliberately slowing down older iPhones.

The 64GB variant of Apple iPhone 8 will be available at Rs 67,940, instead of Rs 66,120, whereas its 256GB variant will now be sold at Rs 81,500 as compared to Rs 79,420 earlier.

Cupertino tech giant Apple seems to have landed in the soup as the $1,000 iPhone X owners are now complaining that they are experiencing screen delays on incoming calls. More exactly, some users are reporting that, at times, they cannot answer incoming calls. "There is also another issue I found with proximity sensor while in a call".

The price of Apple Watch Series 3 Global Positioning System (38mm) will be increased to Rs. 32,380 from Rs. 29,900, and the Apple Watch Series 3 Global Positioning System (42mm) will now cost Rs. 34,410 instead of Rs. 31,900. The Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS, 38mm) now comes with an MRP of 32,380, up from Rs. 29,900.

The increased tariffs are meant to encourage smartphone companies trying to cash in on India's lucrative market to manufacture their products in the country.
