Flipkart will charge the full amount for pre-booking the iPhone 7 and not a token amount. The prices for the iPhone 7 starts from Rs 60,000 for the 32GB variant, while the iPhone 7 Plus starts from Rs 72,000 for the 32GB variant.

The Apple Watch Series 2 also goes on sale next Friday and it will start from Rs 32,900. The ceramic Apple Watch Series 2 Edition has a steep price of Rs 1,10,900 but it is a stunner. If you are a fitness fanatic, you also have the Apple Watch Nike Plus variant for Rs 32,900.
With the iPhone 7, Apple has moved on from the 16GB and 64GB storage variants.
Apple has also moved on from the 3.5mm headphone jack with the new iPhone 7. Instead, the lightning port will act as the audio connector from now on. You also get a bundled headphone jack adapter in the box.
In addition, Apple has introduced two brand new colors for the iPhone 7- both different variants of black. One is the meticulously produced piano-finish jet black variant and another a matte finish matte black variant.
On the Plus variant, Apple has put an ingenious dual-camera setup. Two lenses. A wide-angle and a telephoto lens to enable high clarity optical zoom, DSLR-like background blur and bokeh effects.
The iPhone 7 is launching at a strategic time in India, just at the doorstep of the festive season. And this is likely to see Apple selling a lot more iPhones in India than it ever did with the previous versions.
