With the same price cut, the iPhone 6s Plus (128GB variant) will now be available at 70,000, the sources said, though there was no official confirmation from Apple.
Apple’s 4-inch smartphone iPhone SE, which was launched in March this year, also got a price cut. The 64GB version of iPhone SE, available for Rs.49,000, will now be available at Rs.44,000.
