iPhone 7 for just Rs 19,990 under 12-month contract, here’s everything you need to know
Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have now gone on sale in India. To lure customers, e-commerce sites are offering various cashback and exchange offers on buying the new iPhones. Not to be left behind, telecom operators are also offering interesting deals. Airtel has announced that it will be selling the new iPhone 7 through its online and retail stores for a price tag of Rs 19,990 under a 12-month contract. However, you will have to opt for Airtel Infinity plans to avail this offer. Here’s everything you need to know about Airtel’s offer.
You can buy the new iPhone 7 from Airtel for as low as Rs 19,990. With monthly plan starting at Rs 1,999, you also get free unlimited local and national calls, 5GB 3G/4G data and more.
At Airtel, the 32GB base variant of iPhone 7 is priced at Rs 59,998 and under the offer, you will have to pay Rs 19,990, which is the initial downpayment. The phone will be made available under Bajaj Finance with zero percent interest scheme. You will then have to choose between Airtel Infinity plans priced at Rs 1,999, Rs 2,499 and Rs 2,999 per month. Coming to benefits, the Rs 1,999 plan will get you 5GB of 3G/4G data along with unlimited local + STD calling, even on national roaming. The Rs 2,499 plan gives you 10GB of 3G/4G data, whereas the Rs 2,999 plan gives you 15GB of 3G/4G data per month. You also get free access to Wynk music and movies under any of the plans.
For 128GB and 256GB iPhone 7 you will have to pay Rs 29,490 and Rs 35,990, respectively. In case of the iPhone 7 Plus, downpayment for 32GB variant will cost you Rs 30,792, whereas the 128GB and 256GB will set you back by Rs 37,292 and Rs 43,792, respectively. After the completion of one year, you can either return the iPhone 7 or purchase it by making ‘balloon payment’ of Rs 24,000. If you calculate for one year, you end up paying roughly Rs 80,000, if you choose the entry level plan of Rs 1,999 per month. It’s not that bad considering the benefits, but Reliance Jio’s offering is even more enticing than this. If you want, you can also upgrade to the next iPhone after the 12 month tenure is over, something similar to what AT&T and other carriers in the US offer.
For users who don’t want to go for the Infinity Plans, they can directly purchase the iPhone 7 which starts at Rs 60,000 and goes all the way up to Rs 80,000, oriPhone 7 Plus which is priced at Rs 72,000 for the base variant and goes all the way up to Rs 92,000. Airtel customers who buy the new iPhones from Airtel stores will be given 10GB 3G/4G data every month, for a period of 12 months.
Reliance Jio, on the other hand, is not only providing home delivery of iPhones, but also offering free annual plan worth Rs 18,000 to the buyers valid till December 31 2017. The offer is not only applicable on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but also on the iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus as well.
