The sub 50k pricetag was tempting. As such I don't think I would need the Air Pods. But what really did the trick was (includes EarPods, Power Adapter) on Amazon! Telling my folks at home that those things have to be purchased separately would have been a bit embarassing. What was the HDFC offer you got from Apple India Store?

Btw, have also ordered a Spigen Ultra Hybrid Case which will arrive tomorrow (1 week before the phone)

The HDFC offer was till 16th Oct. It was a flat 6% cash back which is ~ INR 3.6k. So that would have made the price INR 51.4K.

They removed it and added the air pods offer.

This year FK, Amazon and Apple have come up with some amazing offers. I actually did not expect the offers to be this good.

1. iPhone SE ~ 26K and 21.2K after exchange
2. iPhone 11 (128GB) ~ effectively 47-49k
3. Air Pods - Free

I am not sure where you saw that as I just bought one in the early hours of October 16 and got the instant discount + cashback (Rs 1,750+Rs 1,250 respectively) on a deal price of Rs 52,999 for the iPhone 11 128GB (Red).

Ideally I'd like to buy from Appario as Amazon owns a stake in it. However, I see that Darshita has a 90% positive rating over 15,000+ reviews and the order is fulfilled by Amazon and eligible for a 10-day replacement so should be fine.

Default The iPhone Thread

Ordered iPhone 11 Red 128 GB this evening for INR 52,249 from Amazon after HDFC Card discount. Had recently got the AirPods as my Birthday gift so did not make sense to go for the Apple Online Store. Have also ordered matching red Spigen ultra hybrid case.

It appears to be a good deal because as far as I recollect, I had got my iPhone X for about INR 68,000 sometime last year August/ September.

Hi! Please check the bottom of this screenshot. I could be missing something.

EDIT: Correction. I see the lower half of the page mentions that HDFC discounts are available. Apologies, did not see that.

One Plus phones are sold on Amazon by Darshita Electronics since quite sometime, so, I would not worry if I were you.

Just checked and that is strange indeed! It looks like they have changed the terms so that now the instant discount, and not the cashback, is available on the 64GB model and neither perk is available on the 128GB model.

That's a shame. It was good while it lasted! I guess the demand is through the roof.

Whoever is buying from Amazon.in, must be a little watchful and careful while buying. So you don't miss an offer OR you place an order assuming you're availing the order.

Some iPhone 11 variants do get the HDFC 10% (limited to ₹ 1750) off, but Not any cash back bonus. Some 128GB variants or some colors get neither. Please see the images below. This is as of 17 Oct, 1:22am.
Do watch out when buying..

Nothing I can see that is a cause for worry. Darshita Electronic order are fulfilled by Amazon and also has a higher rating than even Appario (Amazon's own managed shop).

Not really, the 6% flat off HDFC bank offer was effective only until 16 October 2020. This was mentioned along with the offer. The 'free AirPods with iPhone 11' offer only started today 17 October 2020.

Yeah, it's a shame that they added the fine print and made these exclusions. Both the instant discount and the cashback were available on the iPhones, without any caveats, for a couple of hours at least after the sale started at 12 am on October 16. Don't know when they made the changes. I guess one more reason to become a Prime member and get in on the sale a day early!

I read that iPhone 11 has fast charging support but comes with a weak 5W charger! Are any of you buying the 18W Fast Charger or is it 30W? If so, which one & from where? I assume USB-C to Lightning cable would also be needed.

The cable is already supplied with the phone. I use a 12W iPad charger. There is one 20w adapter available in the Apple website listed for 1.9k. Ideally, use their products when the device is new.

Just Ordered AIRPODS PRO @ Rs. 18,000 (Flipkart at Offer Price)
& IPHONE XR 64GB @ Rs.30,434 ( Flipkart at Offer Price plus Exchange old phone(-6500) )

My first Iphone & Airpods. Have been using Android phones till now. Had some queries:

1) How can I charge Iphone wirelessly? Seems I have to buy a wireless charger separately. If yes, which one should I buy?

2) How much time the Phone takes for full charge from Wireless Charger?

3) Can AirPods PRO be charged Wirelessly?

4) Do AIRPODS PRO work seamlessley with Macbook Air?

I too ordered Airpods PRO. Got it for 16249\-. Listed price was 17999\-, but had an additional discount of 10% on SBI credit cards. Now that's a steal.

Fingers crossed, hope Flipkart deliver good product.

My friend logged in all night and there was no offer. To relieve him of his misery I contacted Apple customer care and they said the response to their Diwali offer was overwhelming, and is now closed. Only in India can they treat customers so badly. They didn't have it up even for a second, and closed it.
