Apple is all set to launch the iPhone 11-series today. The keynote will begin at 10:30pm IST, which is when Apple will officially reveal the prices and availability of the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Ahead of the launch event, India Today Tech has learnt that the iPhone 11-series will go on sale in India on September 20. Additionally, we also learn that Paytm Mall will be one of the platforms where the iPhone 11 phones will be available with cashback offers.
Industry sources have told India Today Tech about the iPhone 11 India launch details. It looks like the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max will be available in the country exactly 10 days from now on Friday, September 20. This is reportedly also when the new iPhones will be available in the US to coincide with the reopening of Apple's iconic Fifth Avenue store in New York City. As per some reports, pre-orders for the new iPhones will begin on Friday, September 13. The iPhone 11 models are expected to be available via Apple Authorised Resellers and e-commerce platforms in India.
Paytm Mall will sell the iPhone 11-series and we are told that the platform will offer cashback of Rs 10,000. We are also told that this cashback offer will be applied on all products Apple plans to bring to India, which could also include the Apple Watch Series 5 and possibly a new entry-level iPad.
