Official: iPhone 5s price = Rs.53,500 and iPhone 5C price = Rs.41900

Apple earlier announced that the iPhone 5s would come to India on November 1 but price was a mystery.

Finally there is a solution to the mystery. The prices are out.

iPhone 5s 16 GB: Rs. 53,500

iPhone 5s 32 GB: Rs. 62,500

iPhone 5s 16 GB: Rs. 71,500

iPhone 5C 16 GB: Rs. 41,900

iPhone 5C 32GB: Rs. 53,500

All prices are inclusive of all taxes.

iPhone 5s colors = Gold,Space Grey and Silver

iPhone 5C colors = Blue, Green, Pink, Yellow and White

The prices are much higher than expected(Thanks, Dollar rate) but I am sure Apple will sell more units than the number of units sold of iPhone 5(250,000 approx)

Airtel and Rcom has started taking pre requests for the phone at selected outlets.

Rumor: iPhone 5S coming to India before November 1

Apple sold 9 million units of iPhone’s in the first week – (Thanks China). This time Apple seems to be showing some love to India.

According to Aptronix, a brand new Apple reseller in Juhu, Mumbai, the iPhone 5S is most likely to come out before Diwali.

The reason here is simple and obvious. iPhone in India is a prestige possession and people spend big bucks in India only during festive season. Diwali is India’s biggest festival. Apple would not want to lose out on this opportunity.

According to other rumors, Apple is all set to open up 100 stores in stores in 2 tire and 3 tire cities in the next 6-9 months to cater to the wealthy people in those cities.

Pricing, however is not yet known. If tech pandits are to be believed the iPhone 5S would cost Rs.50000+ but according to our sources(do not wished to be named) the iPhone 5S would come out at the same rate the iPhone 5 came out in India (Rs.1000 – 2000 difference might be there but will not cross Rs.50000). The iPhone 5C is expected to cost around Rs. 39000.
