If you are in India and have been waiting to buy new hardware Apple announced at WWDC last month, there's good news. Gadgets 360 has learnt that Apple retail partners across the country have started receiving stock of the new iPad, MacBook, and iMac models.
Pricing for the new hardware had been revealed post-launch, but the shipments never arrived. While there was no word from Apple on the reasons for the delay, Gadgets 360 understands things got delayed due to GST-related issues.
Earlier this month, Apple announced price cuts on its products in India, including the ones announced at WWDC that hadn't yet been made available in the country. Thus, the new iPad, MacBook, and iMac models announced at WWDC 2017 saw price cuts in India even before their launch. So, it seems consumers did get some benefit from the delay after all.
Here's a recap of the India pricing of the new hardware.
