Apple announced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on Wednesday, 9th September, 2015. As is the case every year, they're substantial enough upgrades to the existing iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

What many of us would be dying to know, though, would be the MRP sticker prices on these new iPhones in India. Don't worry - the Indian Geek has you covered. We've been tracking Apple prices for various products for few years now, and our estimates last year were pretty bang-on: we projected that the just-announced iPhone 6 would cost Rs. 53,562, and it ended up getting a sticker price of Rs. 53,500 (at launch). So, we're projecting prices for the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus again. Check them out below.

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus: Gold, Silver, Rose Gold and Space Grey
The projected prices below have taken into account the following factors.
  • Current USD-INR exchange rates, compared to last year's rates
  • Apple's markup for import duties and taxes, when selling iPhones in India
  • Apple's penchant for rounding off the figures, and maintaing constant price difference between it's current-gen product line-up

iPhone 6S
  16 GB     US$649     ₹59,500
  64 GB     US$749     ₹69,000
128 GB     US$849     ₹78,500

iPhone 6S Plus

  16 GB     US$749     ₹69,000
  64 GB     US$849     ₹78,500
128 GB     US$949     ₹88,000

The launch date is yet to be confirmed, but if we're going by Apple's track record of iPhone launches in India in 2014 and 2013, then we'd say that mid- to late-October is a good guess for the launch date in India.

Do let us know if you'll be picking up the iPhone 6S or the iPhone 6S Plus when they launch in India in the comments below.
