Apple has confirmed the official pricing of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C in the Indian market, and the availability of the devices would be from November 1st, and the phone would be available at the official retailers and authorized stores, such as the iStore from Reliance. The availability of iPhone 5S & 5C via RCOM is confirmed already as they are preparing for the launch, and the pricing would be as given below.
Apart from RCOM, Airtel would be the network provider through which one would be able to purchase the new iPhones. The iPhone 5S would be available in the Gold, Silver (White) and Space Grey (Black) colors and these are the normal color options and there would be no extra charge for the gold color one. The iPhone 5C is a color-special device which has most of the features similar to that of the iPhone 5, and thus you get to choose from the five colors – Blue, Green, Pink, Yellow and White.
