Last week, Indian government had announced the hike in custom duties on imported phones. As a result of that, Apple has announced the price hike for its iPhone devices in India.

The low-cost iPhone SE is being manufactured locally, so it won’t be affected by this alteration. But other iPhone models saw the surge of roughly Rs 2,000 or 3% depending on the current price.

This change in custom duty is for all electronics products. So, not just Apple iPhone but Apple Watch prices have also been changed.

Indian government has increased the basic customs duty on all mobile phones from 15% to 20%. So most of the imported phones will see hike in price.It is also worth to note that the government had already increased the duty to 15% from 10% last year in December. Indian government wants to push the locally manufactured devices with this move. I am not sure if companies will go with local manufacturing in place of importing products.
