According to the reports, the Apple iPhone 5s is available at a market operating price of Rs. 22,500. But, the smartphone can be purchased for even lower price at some retail outlets.

Presently, the iPhone 5s 16GB is available at as low as Rs. 21,948 via e-commerce online service Flipkart whereas Amazon India and Snapdeal are offering it at Rs. 21,499; while Infibeam (the only Apple authorised online retail partner) is selling it at Rs. 21,899.

The iPhone 5s has received the second big price cut in four months. Back in September, the iPhone 5s received its first price cut post the launch of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and was made available at Rs. 35,000 for the 16GB variant, with the 32GB model priced at Rs. 40,000. To recall, the iPhone 5s 16GB price went down to Rs. 26,990 at an online retailer in September.

With the latest price cut, the iPhone 5s price in India is probably amongst the lowest in the world. In the US for example, an unlocked iPhone 5s is still USD 450 (approximately Rs. 30,000).
