Apple Partners Flipkart to Sell iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus in India

Apple Partners Flipkart to Sell iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus in India
Highlights
  • iPhone 7 will start at Rs. 60,000 for the 32GB variant
  • iPhone 7 Plus will start at Rs. 72,000 for the 32GB variant
  • iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will launch in India on October 7

In an attempt to expand the online availability of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones in India, Apple has partnered with e-commerce website Flipkart. For those unaware, until recently, Apple had Infibeam as its only authorised online reseller.

 

The new tie-up with Flipkart will mean the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will be available at the official launch price at the online retailer. The biggest advantage for Flipkart with the partnership will be that it can source the new iPhones from Apple directly, instead of Apple partners. Other retailers such as Snapdeal, Amazon India, and Paytm among others sell the units which they source from Apple partners. These units still carry Apple warranty, so for end users this is unlikely to be a big change. The Flipkart listing for upcoming iPhone 7 series clearly lists other older iPhone models as well, so the partnership is for more than just the newest iPhone units.
