Although, iPhone SE pricing stays intact since it is manufactured in India itself.

Apple iPhone X will now be priced at Rs 95,390 for 64GB variant while the 256GB variant will be priced at Rs 1,08,930.

Apple has increased the price of its iPhones in India after the government raised customs duty on imported smartphones to 20% in a bid to push local manufacturing.

"This measure will promote creation of more jobs in the country".

"iPhone X surpassed our expectations and has been our top-selling iPhone every week since it shipped in November", CEO Tim Cook says.

Just last month the Union Cabinet had allowed 100% FDI that made it easier for companies like Apple to open its stores in India. A second post, stating the problem also affects the iPhone 6, has had over 300 people click the button in agreement; many comments replying to this post cite the iPhone X as having the issue. The first hike in iPhone prices was announced in December previous year after the Indian government increased the customs duty to 15% from 10%.

The news comes as Apple is widely-tipped to ditch flashy new features planned for its upcoming iOS 12 update.

The bigger iPhone 8 Plus gets a dual 12MP camera setup, whereas the iPhone gets a single 12MP shooter with improved optics. The iPhone 8 with 64GB storage will now start at Rs 67,940 in India up from the Rs 66,120 price it had in December 2017. The new prices for 32GB variant of iPhone 7 Plus are Rs 62,840 and Rs 72,060 for the 128GB variant.

The iPhone 6 (32GB) variant is now priced at Rs. 31,900 which was previously sold for Rs. 30,780.

The majority of iPhones will sustain a surge of roughly Rs 2,000 or 3% depending on their current price.

The revised prices are also applicable for Apple Watch's Nike+ edition. The iPhone 6S will now be sold for Rs. 42,900 while it was sold for Rs. 41,550.

As for Apple iPhone 7, it now starts at Rs 52,370 for the base variant and goes up to Rs 61,560.

As for the Apple Watch models, the price hike is quite prominent.
