Apple has cut prices of one of its latest iPhones in India by around one-fourth, sources said, as the U.S. tech giant looks to boost sales in the world's second-biggest smartphone market following a similar move in China.
The price of the 64 GB iPhone XR has been reduced by at least $259 due to a price cut and a credit card cashback campaign, two people with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Thursday.
"Apple is going to change their game," one of the people said, adding the company could also adjust prices for other devices depending on their demand.
On Apple's India website, the price of the 64 GB iPhone XR was unchanged at just over $1,100, but is on sale for less than $860 at stores, the people said.
Prices for the two other XR variants have also dropped, they said. The XR is the cheapest series among iPhones Apple launched last year.
The change in pricing of the iPhone XR is a short-term promotional offer, an industry source said.
Apple did not respond to a request for comment.
The price reduction comes after iPhone prices were lowered in China for the second time this year, as Apple wrestles with a prolonged sales slowdown in the world's largest smartphone market partly due to a slowing economy.
In India, Apple's iPhones are up against the more competitive pricing of rival handsets from South Korea's Samsung and China's OnePlus.
"The focus of this entire (price cut) exercise is to win customers who would have thought of going to Samsung or OnePlus, to make them think whether they can spend some extra money on an iPhone XR - it's more bang for the buck," said Rushabh Doshi of tech research firm Canalys.
Samsung's latest Galaxy S10e is priced at about $800 while the OnePlus 6T starts around $550.
Apple's share of India's $400-plus smartphone segment stood at 23 percent in 2018, behind both Samsung and OnePlus, showed data from Hong Kong-based tech researcher Counterpoint.
But with a share of just 1 percent of India's entire smartphone market, Apple responded last year by revamping its sales and distribution strategy.
Apple also plans to increase local production in a move that could help it limit the impact of a China-U.S. trade war. The company will soon begin assembling its top-end phones through the local unit of Hon Hai Precision (Foxconn), Reuters previously reported.
