Now, the device can be available for Rs 59,999, Rs 64,999 and Rs 74,999, a near Rs 10k discount on all variants.
Coming to the iPhone 12 lineup, the 64GB variant will retail for Rs 66,900 instead of the Rs 79,900 launch price. The 128GB variant and 256GB variant, which at the time of launch retailed for Rs 84,900 and Rs 94,900 will now retail for Rs 71,999 and rs 81,999.

Were There Any Other Price Cuts?
This comes after reports in China hinted that the 128GB version of the iPhone 12 would retail for 4799 yuan ($744) on some platforms. This is a massive 2000 yuan ($310) shy of the official price of 6799 yuan ($1,054). As we all know, when the iPhone 13 series arrive, the sales of the iPhone 12 could drop significantly.
This is the risk that many sales platforms can not afford to take. Thus, they activate these price cuts to sell off their remaining stock of the iPhone 12.
Although the iPhone 13 will come with a couple of upgrades this year, its starting price will not rise. However, due to the addition of the 1TB storage version, the high version will cost over $2,000. Considering the pricing, many iPhone 12 users are now getting set for an exchange with the upcoming iPhone 13.
