Following the Union Budget 2018, announced last Week, Apple has hiked the overall prices of most of its product in India. The effect came after Indian Government increased the customs duty on imported phones from 15 to 20 percent to encourage ‘Make in India’ program.

The recent changes apply to all Apple products that are manufactured outside of India. Having said that, iPhone SE, which is assembled domestically remains unaffected by the price change.
