New Delhi: Apple's newest iPhones, the iPhone 5s and the cheaper iPhone 5c will be officially available in the Indian markets from November 1, just in time before Diwali. Apple had announced the India availability about two weeks ago.
The Apple iPhone 5s will come in gold, silver or space grey for Rs 53,500 for the 16GB model, Rs 62,500 for the 32GB model and Rs 71,500 for the 64GB model. The iPhone 5c will come in blue, green, pink, yellow and white for Rs 41,900 for the 16GB model and Rs 53,500 for the 32GB model.
iPhone 5s cases will be available in beige, black, blue, brown, yellow and red for Rs 3,200 and iPhone 5c cases will come in blue, green, pink, yellow, black and white for Rs 2,300. The iPhone 4S 8GB model will be available for Rs 31,500 from November 1.
The iPhone 5c has a 4-inch Retina display and is powered by Apple's A6 chip. It also has live photo filters and a rear cover that lights up. The iPhone 5c also includes a new FaceTime HD camera. Apple says the iPhone 5c is made of hard-coated polycarbonate body with a steel reinforced frame for a sturdy feel. Apple has also created soft, matte, microfibre-lined cases for the iPhone 5c.
The Apple iPhone 5s has a fingerprint identity sensor built into the home button. Apple says the iPhone 5S is the "world's first and only smartphone" with a 64-bit chip.
The new iPhone 5s also introduces Touch ID, the rumoured fingerprint sensor for the iPhone. Built into the home button, Touch ID uses a laser cut sapphire crystal, together with the capacitive touch sensor, to take a high-resolution image of the user's fingerprint and use that to unlock the device. The Apple iPhone 5s also has a 4-inch Retina display.
The Apple iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c are available in India via Airtel and AirCel along with authorised Apple resellers.
