In a new development that could hint at Apple commercially releasing its newest iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in India soon, the technology giant has slashed the prices of its currently selling iPads in the country. The latest price cuts amount to as much as up to Rs.10,000.
As per a BGR report, Apple has even resorted to introducing upgraded storage variants of its current-gen iPads and these are available for purchase across India.
This means that consumers who have wanted to purchase an Apple iPad for quite some time, but were fretting about the high price-tag of the slates, can do so now without having to part with an entire month's worth of savings.
