Prices of Apple iPhone 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max and others go up by Rs 1,300 due to basic customs duty

The iPhone 11, XR and 7 are unaffected by the price hike, as are MacBooks, iPads and the Apple Watch.

Just when we were wondering about when Apple would launch a low-cost iPhone, Apple raised the prices of most of its phones in India by Rs 1,300 due to the new Basic Customs Duty (BCD) rate.

As per a report by The Economic Times, the basic customs duty (BCD) rate was announced during the recent union budgets along with the withdrawal of earlier exemption from BCD under the Social Welfare Surcharge.
