Apple unveiled its next generation iPhones- the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 pro and iPhone 11 pro max a few days back. The hype has been building ever since and as always, people just can’t wait to give away their money to Apple to get a 2019 iPhone in return.
This time, Apple has ensured that it is arriving in a timely fashion in the world’s fastest growing smartphone and data market. As a result, the much anticipated phones of the year just went live in India and are now available for pre-orders via Amazon India, Flipkart, and Paytm Mall. This release is pretty much in sync with global pre-order dates.
Festive season is on and the company just made its debut for the year 2019 in India. Therefore, it will likely benefit from the side of customers as well as from a number of banking and other offers that’ll go live in the upcoming weeks. In India ,the festive season is a principal season for marketing and e-retailers as well as offline shops. Both are on a race to provide the best options possible to make their goods sell out to new customers.
Starting midnight tonight, the three e-retailers started accepting the pre-bookings for the three new iPhone models. However the actual sales will start from September 27. Distributor Ingram Micro said in a press release on Friday, “Pre-bookings are also live via offline retailers”.
Let’s take a sneak peek into the price options customers have –
