Apple has just launched the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus in India, and for the sensible Indian customer, it means that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 are up for grabs at much more affordable prices than before. The largest Indian Telecom Airtel has come up with new offers for the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.
It is to be noted that the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus were launched in India in September last year with exclusive offers from JIO 4G network. And now exactly one year later, it seems like Airtel is a little late to the party.
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus offers on Airtel:
Airtel is targeting the Indian customers who are on the lookout for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and do not want to burn their pockets. The iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus are now available at Airtel’s own stores where you can get them for a feeble down payment of 7,777 Indian Rupees. There is a catch though. If you buy your new iPhone 7 or the iPhone 7 Plus from Airtel you will have to sign a 24-month contract.
The monthly postpaid bill for the offer is 2499 Indian Rupees per month. This amounts to a total of 67,753 Indian Rupees. For 2499 per month you get 30GB of Airtel 4G data and free calls local, STD and free incoming when roaming. Airtel is also including Airtel Secure which protects your device from physical damage and cyber theft.

The total cost of getting an iPhone 7 32GB from Airtel is 67,753. The iPhone 7 can be had on Flipkart for as little as 38,999 Indian Rupees.
