Apple has announced discounts on its products in partnership with HDFC Bank in India. The discounts are only valid on the Cupertino-based tech giant’s online store in the country. Apart from the flat instant bank discounts, Apple is also providing additional trade-in benefits on the purchase of the iPhone 14 series and 3 or 6 months of no-cost EMI on all devices. It’s unclear how long Apple is running the bank offer on its official website.
The list of devices that are eligible for HDFC Bank discounts include the iPhone 14 series, iPad Air, iPad 10th generation, iPad Pro, MacBook Air M2 chip, MacBook Pro, Apple Watch Ultra, Apple Watch Series 8, and AirPods Pro (2nd Generation). It’s worth noting that customers need to have HDFC Bank credit cards in order to avail the discounts.
The entire iPhone 14 series comprising the regular, Plus, Pro, and Pro Max variants are eligible for a flat Rs 7,000 instant discount. Apple is also offering an additional Rs 5,000 exchange bonus when buyers trade in their old phone for the new iPhone. However, the exchange value is indicative and depends on the condition of the phone. The total discount after the bank offer and exchange bonus amounts to Rs 12,000.
The MacBook Air with M2 chip and MacBook Pro 13, 14, and 16-inch get a flat discount of Rs 10,000. The iMac 24-inch receives Rs 5,000 instant discount. Coming to the tablets, customers purchasing the iPad Pro 12.9-inch, iPad Air, and iPad (10th gen) can avail discounts of Rs 5,000, Rs 4,000, and Rs 3,000 respectively.
Apple Watch Ultra and Watch Series 8 are eligible for Rs 5,000 and Rs 4,000 instant discounts. Meanwhile, those interested in the AirPods Pro (2nd generation) will be eligible for Rs 2,000 in instant savings.
