By Ankita Garg: The iPhone 14 has received a big discount during Amazon’s Independence Day sale, which has started for Prime members. Those who don’t have a subscription to Amazon Prime will be able to access the Great Freedom Festival Sale event on August 4. Here are all the details.
iPhone 14 gets discount during Amazon Independence Day sale, deal explained
During Amazon Great Freedom Festival sale event, the iPhone 14 is currently listed at Rs 66,999, which is down from its original price of Rs 79,900. So, users are getting a discount of Rs 12,901. With SBI bank cards, the price effectively drops to Rs 66,249. So, the total discount that a consumer is getting is Rs 13,651, which is inclusive of the bank and some flat discount offer. This price is for the 128GB storage model. But, is it worth buying now that the iPhone 15 could launch next month? Let’s find out.
Buy iPhone 14 or wait for iPhone 15?
If you can pay a high price and want new features, then I would recommend you to wait for the iPhone 15 as it will likely launch next month in India and other markets. So far, leaks have suggested that the upcoming iPhone 15 will get a massive upgrade in terms of camera, chipset, front design, battery, and back finish. But, nothing is officially confirmed yet. Do keep in mind that the new iPhone will likely be pretty costly. Apple is tipped to price the iPhone at around Rs 80,000, just like the previous iPhone 14 model. Hence, if you want new upgrades and don’t mind paying a high price, then it would be worth waiting for the iPhone 15.
But, if your budget is low, go for the iPhone 13 instead of iPhone 14 as both of them are technically the same phone with almost no changes. There is a satellite connectivity feature, which the iPhone 13 lacks, but this feature is not supported in India. The rest of the areas in terms of camera, chipset, display, design, and more are similar. So, it absolutely makes sense for you to buy the iPhone 13 if you can’t spend a high price on the iPhone 15 smartphone.
The iPhone 13 is currently selling in India with a starting price of Rs 61,999 via Flipkart. But, you can get it at an even lower price as Amazon and Flipkart will be running an Independence Day sale starting August 4 for everyone.
