The new iPhone 5C and 5S were welcomed in the city by hundreds of fans recently.
However, while many were eager to grab a look, many others were skeptical about the pricing of the phones that were marketed as ‘entry level’ by Apple.
“I have been a part of every iPhone launch and this time is no different. I have decided to buy the 5S even though it costs around `53,000. I am a long term iPhone user and still keep with me all the models from the 3GS onwards,” said Arvind, who was waiting for the launch to get his hands on Apple’s latest offering.
However, Anbalagan, who was accompanying him, said, “I somehow feel it (5C) costs a bit too much. While I do want to see how it looks, I think I shall stick to my 4S for now.”
While the iPhone 5S 16 GB version is expected to be sold at `53,500, the colourful version iPhone 5C 16 GB is expected to be sold at `41,900.
Reliance communications on Friday also announced various monthly plans for users wishing to bundle the phone with Reliance talk plans.
The 16 GB iPhone 5S will be available on the RCom network for a monthly payment of `2,999 and the iPhone 16 GB 5C at a monthly fee of `2,599 with zero up front costs.
