“Apple has raised prices of all of the iPhone models except the iPhone SE”
Last week, the Indian government increased the import tax on several electronic devices like mobile phones, televisions, cameras and more. The tax was increased from 10 percent to 15 percent, a move which was expected to result in the price hike of smartphones and other devices. Now, as expected, Apple has increased the price of all iPhone models in India except the SE. The pricing of the iPhones has been increased by up to 4.3 percent, with the highest bump being on the iPhone X.
