Highlights of the Story

  • Apple has hiked the Indian retail prices by at least 5% for each product.
  • This is the second price hike for iPhones in the country this year.
  • Prices of flagship Galaxy S20 series have been increased by up to Rs 5,000.

Not only Apple, other manufacturers such as Xiaomi, Realme, Oppo, Vivo and event Korean tech giant Samsung has raised the prices of its smartphones in India to counter the GST rate hike announced by the Indian government.
