IPhone 6 Plus $29 Battery Replacement Delayed


As the name suggests, Flipkart is offering discounts and cashbacks on a range of Apple products including the latest iPhone X. The sale has also been extended to Apple's other products such as Apple Watch, iPads and Macbooks. Here's a look at the different offers. There is Rs 5000 EMI cashback on EMI transactions. A source at an Apple Authorized Service Provider told MacRumors that they recently got a package with several replacement batteries, with majority being for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The Apple iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus are also available with Rs 5,000 cashback, while iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will get Rs 3,000 cashback for the cardholder. Apple MacBook will get Rs 8,000 cashback.

This makes sense in a way, since Apple would have supplies of its newer phones ready to go as compared to older models.

While iPhone SE (32GB) is priced at Rs. 18,999 during the "Apple Week", the iPhone 8 (64GB) is available for Rs. 54,999, down from Rs. 64,000. This offer is applicable only for the first eligible transaction per card during the offer period.

The new generation iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are also available with discounts.

Similar offers are available on iPhone X having 256 GB which is priced at Rs 1,02,000. The actual cost of the phone is Rs 59,000 on Flipkart. The iPhone 8 64GB is available for Rs 54,999, down from Rs 64,000. Of course, the exchange price discount will depend on the phone that is being traded in for the iPhone 7 Plus. There's also up to Rs 18,000 off on exchange. The cashback is Rs 8,000 on ICICI Bank EMI transactions and it effectively brings the price to Rs 46,490 for the laptop, which is a great deal.

The 32GB variant of the iPhone 6 receives a discount of 8 percent and is now available at Rs 26,999.

Interestingly the iPhone 6s hasn't received any discount and is still listed at its usual price of Rs 34,999.

In December, Apple announced the $29 battery replacement programme to offer out-of-warranty battery replacements to users to retain the performance of their iPhone models.
