Apple seems to have discontinued the iPhone XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4 to make way for newer devices like the iPhone 11 Pro Max and Apple Watch Series 4. Both the iPhone XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4 have quietly been taken off the Apple online store – there’s no more a ‘buy’ option available in case of both these devices. Come to think of it, that’s not very surprising. The iPhone XS Max and the Apple Watch Series 4 were the most expensive products in their categories – and their successors, aka the iPhone 11 Pro Max and the Apple Watch Series 5, have been launched in India at similar prices.
Apple has launched the iPhone 11 Pro Max in India at a starting price of Rs 1,09,900 for the base variant with 64GB storage, going all the way to Rs 1,41,900 for the top-end variant with 512GB storage. Apple has launched the Apple Watch Series 5 in India at a starting price of 40,900 for GPS, while the GPS+Cellular variant has been launched at a starting price of Rs 49,900.
Note that even though Apple has taken off the iPhone 11 Pro Max and the Apple Watch Series 5 from its online store, you can still buy them from third-party online stores (as well as offline stores) - until stocks last that is.
As is generally the norm, Apple has revised the prices of its other iPhones in India post the iPhone 11 launch. Apple has also revised the price of the Apple Watch Series 3 in India similarly. Making both these devices a lot more affordable to buy in a market that is notorious for being the most expensive in the world to get a new Apple product.
The iPhone XR which was launched at a starting price of Rs 76,900 for the base variant with 64GB storage now starts at Rs 49,900 in India. The 128GB variant of the iPhone XR which was launched at Rs 81,900 will now sell for Rs 54,900. Interestingly, the 256GB model of the iPhone XR seems to be discontinued in India. The iPhone XS is also getting a Rs 10,000 price cut immediately after the iPhone 11 launch. The iPhone XS now starts at Rs 89,900 (previously Rs 99,900) for the 64GB variant while its 256GB variant will now be available for Rs 1,03,900 (previously Rs 1,14,900).
While the GPS model of the Apple Watch Series 3 now starts at Rs 20,900, the GPS+Cellular model of the Apple Watch Series 3 will now sell for Rs 29,900 in India.
