    The Apple iPhone 15 series, which includes the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max, is now available in the Indian market. These cutting-edge gadgets are available for purchase through a variety of channels, including the official Apple online shop, Apple's brick-and-mortar stores in Mumbai and Delhi, and a countrywide network of approved retail partners.

    What makes this launch so noteworthy is that the iPhone 15 series will be available in India on the same day that it will be available in more established areas such as the United States and Europe, a break from the traditional staggered rollout plan.

    Indian IT Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar celebrated this achievement by sharing his thoughts via a post on X (formerly known as Twitter). He remarked, "Today marks another milestone for India. It's a remarkable accomplishment thanks to PM Narendra Modi's visionary PLI Scheme. Apple's latest #MakeInIndia iPhone 15 is now accessible throughout the country on the day of its global launch. This means Indian consumers can access the latest products without any delay."

    Chandrasekhar also expressed confidence that 'Made in India' iPhones will soon be available in international markets, concluding with, "Congratulations to Team Apple."

    The iPhone 15 series is priced in India as follows: the iPhone 15 starts at Rs 79,900, the iPhone 15 Plus starts at Rs 89,900, the iPhone 15 Pro starts at Rs 1,34,900, and the top-tier iPhone 15 Pro Max starts at Rs 1,59,900.

    Apple is offering attractive discounts to HDFC Bank cardholders, rendering these flagship devices even more accessible. Those inclined towards the pro models can enjoy an instant savings of Rs 6,000 on eligible HDFC Bank cards. Likewise, prospective buyers of the iPhone 15 or iPhone 15 Plus can avail themselves of an instant discount of Rs 5,000 on eligible HDFC Bank cards.

    Furthermore, Apple has devised a trade-in program to maximize savings. Customers have the option to trade in their old smartphones and receive instant credit toward the purchase of their new iPhone. Apple, for example, is providing up to Rs 67,000 in trade-in value for the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

    This launch not only demonstrates Apple's commitment to the Indian market, but it also demonstrates the success of India's 'Make in India' effort. Apple is ready to have a significant effect not just in the Indian smartphone industry, but also on the world stage, as tech aficionados throughout the nation eagerly embrace the latest iPhone 15 series.
