If possible try to buy the phone during the black Friday sale which is on 24th Nov,23 . You should get a good deal.Even I am planning to get one.

Nothing out of the box. Whatever details were out were eventually accurate. Pricing for iPhone 15 Plus is $899 and as per Zee News it will be ₹74,845 (I highly doubt)
Apple enthusiasts would know, approximately how much should we expect the pricing for 15 & 15 plus in India?

Since the prices are the same as before in USD, there are high chances that the price of the iPhone 15 and the 15 Plus would be the same as before at what the 14 and 14 Plus were sold ie Rs. 79,990/- & Rs. 89,990/- respectively.

There are slight chances of it being cheaper as there are rumors of Made in India iPhones.

Re: The iPhone Thread

Except USB C hardly any reason to upgrade, maybe the 5X optical zoom. One of the weakest iphone launch in recent memory and there presentation style really needs to be changed, even that is rehashed now just like phone designs.

Ideally it should hold on to the current prices of iphone 14 with only pro max getting expensive.

Here pricing is out.

Pro pricing is mind numbing.

I wholeheartedly agree with your points. The other significant change is the new Action Button, but that simply doesn't make any sense to spend so much and upgrade even if you have an iPhone 13 Pro.

13 pro was a good buy till it was available. With this pricing and flipkarts big billion days coming up, we must expect 14 & 14 plus to be dearer by ~20K Will we get BBD sale on 15 & 15 plus as well? I am contemplating moving from Android to iOS and with type C now, it makes a sensible choice. Also, read that all other existing models (13, 14 etc) will also get Type C port.

Apple and their Authorised Resellers never give any discount whatsoever on their latest products. You might find some discounts but that would be approximately 10 months from now and that too not a large amount.
About the Type C port in iPhone 13 and 14, I highly doubt it as why would a manufacturer change the production line after the productís demand is going to be significantly lower than before.

I donít think they offer much discount here in India. The best option to buy an iPhone in India is if you own a Business and purchasing in the name of your firm and then claim GST. The only other option is to buy it from abroad for a much better price.

I guess it sensed the new phones getting launched, and it is now preparing its departure

35% drop is 12 hours without use means some connectivity has gone wrong, either wifi or searching for 5g. For iOS, the probability of a stray app working in background is small.

Re: The iPhone Thread

For those looking to pick the new iPhones i.e. the 15 & 15 Plus, you can expect card discounts of around 4-5k INR on Flipkart / amazon. This is usually the case. However, I would still hold back and see how the 15 fairs in the market; coz depending on that we might see better offers in the coming months. For instance, my friend picked up the 14 128gb in Jan for 65k INR for the Republic Day sale which IMO was a great price back then.

The regular 15’s look like a good update from the 14’s and can be considered those looking to pick one. The Pro’s, not so much IMO.

Im thinking the 15 Pro and Pro Max will be superb upgrades from the 12 Pro Max which I presently use.
Mainly for the Camera capabilities and the Type C port.
Any thoughts?

Re: The iPhone Thread

The price difference between India and abroad is still high, so much for made in india !
