Sam's Club is offering a $100 gift card to members who purchase an iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max next week.

Apple has finally unveiled the new trio of iPhones and though it has just been less than a day, analysts have already started crunching the numbers to make sale forecasts and it seems as if the underdog will steal the show.

On the iPhone X and iPhone 8, users were first required to open a relevant app to allow their iPhone to scan for NFC tags.

However, in order to qualify, you'll need to buy an iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max on an installment plan, which means you'll need to pay for it monthly over a set period of time you define with your carrier.

Apple India's official website has no mention of prices of the iPhone 6 and iPhone SE, so it will be fair to assume that Apple is discontinuing the two devices. However, official confirmation is yet to be received from Apple on this matter. The iPhone X is water resistant of up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes.

Apple iPhone 8 iPhone 8 Plus 64GB is now available at a new price of Rs 69,900 as compared to its previous price tag of Rs 77,560. iPhone 8 Plus with 256GB in-built storage will now retail at Rs 84,900.

Unlike the USA market, where the iPhone X was entirely discontinued, the Indian variant of the iPhone X will also get a price cut like its older siblings. However, DigiTimes has a fairly good track record when it comes to forecasts, so we may see iPhone XR touching these figures by the end of the year. While there was no reason given for the withdrawal of the model, it is evident that manufacturing costs for the iPhone X didn't drop enough over the last 10 months.
