HDFC debit and credit cardholders can get the phone even lower as they will be eligible for an additional 10 percent refund, bringing the effective cost to Rs 53,900.

Meanwhile, the 128GB and 256GB models will also be available under this offer. The 128GB will be priced at Rs 64,900, while the 256GB variant of the iPhone XR will set it back by Rs 74,900. Compared to its original price of Rs 81,900 and Rs 91,900, respectively, this seems like a very good deal.

For HDFC Bank credit and debit card users, the 128GB iPhone XR will be available at a price of Rs 58,400, while the 256GB model can be had for as low as Rs 67,400.

Please note that the money back offers are valid for HDFC credit and debit card users, opting to pay the full amount in one go and even those opting for a 12 or 24 month EMI option.

While prices are not yet low enough to be cheap, Apple’s decision to cut prices comes at a good time in terms of competition. The new prices put the iPhone XR directly in the price mix of the Samsung Galaxy S10e and the Google Pixel 3.
