Apple is offering 50% off the AirPods in India when you purchase an iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Plus. The company is providing this discount amid the country’s festive season and ahead of Diwali.

Additionally, new users will get a free Apple Music subscription for six months.

Get the AirPods for 50% off or upgrade to AirPods Pro 2

As a part of the offer, Apple is bundling third-generation AirPods at 50% off with the iPhone 14. AirPods 3 retail for Rs 19,900 in India, but thanks to the ongoing deal, you can save Rs 9950. Even better, Apple is allowing customers to upgrade to the AirPods Pro 2 with MagSafe by paying the difference amount. So, you only pay Rs 14,950 for the AirPods Pro instead of Rs 24,900.

The offer runs through November 14 and is available on Apple’s online store and retail stores. It is not available on iPhone 14 units purchased through authorized Apple resellers and third-party e-commerce sites.

If you are more interested in buying the iPhone 15 series, there’s no Diwali offer on them. But you can get an instant discount of Rs 6,000 on the Pro models and Rs 5,000 off on the non-Pro lineup provided you use an HDFC credit card for the transaction.

It is typical of Apple to run a Diwali offer on its online store in India during the festive season. In 2022, the company provided discounts of up to Rs 7,000 on orders over Rs 41,900. And a year before that, the company bundled a free pair of AirPods on the purchase of select iPhone models.

You can get the iPhone 14 at lower prices from other retailers

Apple’s offer might seem attractive at first glance. But you can get the iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Plus at significantly lower prices than their MRP through third-party retailers, Amazon and Flipkart.

iPhones are in high demand during the festive season in India and are heavily discounted during this period.
