The iPhone 14 Series in India starts at Rs 79,900 for the base iPhone 14 with 128GB storage and goes all the way up to Rs 1,39,900 for the baseline iPhone 14 Pro Max in India. Notably, only the Pro variants of the phones feature the new A16 Bionic chipset, with the vanilla iPhone 14 retaining last year’s A15 Bionic.
Moreover, according to multiple reports and user feedback today, iPhone 14, especially the Pro variants are particularly hard to get on the launch date today, with retailers even selling the units at a black market premium of high as Rs 10,000 over MRP, so it will be interesting to know how Unicorn and Blinkit manage the stocks owing to a reasonably high demand.
Despite being available only in Mumbai and Delhi currently, the gesture might serve as a catalyst to allow for the purchase of consumer technology products like iPhones, headphones, laptops, etc. using Blinkit.
Delhi and Mumbai users will have to update their Blinkit app on iOS or Android to access the iPhone delivery option.
