Apple iPhone 4S is set to launch in US & other six countries tomorrow, October 14th. 22 more countries will be getting iPhone 4S by October 28th.

Apple iPhone 4S in India has confirmed that Apple will be officially launching iPhone 4S in India by November or December this year. Currently Airtel & Aircel are offering unlocked iPhone 4 for about 34,000 INR for 16 GB model & 40,000 INR for 32 GB model. Besides Airtel & Aircel, a third carrier will be getting iPhone 4S. But that third carrier is not Vodafone. The third carrier can be BSNL, Idea, Reliance or Uninor.

The iPhone 4S, which goes on sale in the US and a handful of other countries on Friday, is scheduled to be launched in India before the end of this year, credible sources told BGR India. These are the same sources who had informed us about the reverse subsidy model and that the iPhone 4 will be sold factory unlocked weeks before the official announcement from Apple and the two carriers – Aircel and Airtel. Currently, we are looking at a November launch, which might get delayed to December, depending on demand from countries where the iPhone 4S will be available before India. However, they are confident the launch will happen in 2011 itself.

The iPhone 4S will be launched by November this year. The launch might get delayed till December. But, it’ll be in 2011 itself. It’s the first time that Apple will launch an iPhone in India within two months of its global launch. With iPhone 4S, an 8 GB iPhone 4 model will also be launched in India which will be priced under 30,000 INR. The 16 GB & 32 GB models of iPhone 4 will be discontinued. Also iPhone 3GS 8 GB model will be available for consumers, which is currently priced at about 19,500 INR. The approximate iPhone 4S pricing details are as follows:

  • 16 GB – Rs. 35,000
  • 32 GB – Rs. 41,000
  • 64 GB – Rs. 48,000

iPhone 4S has already crossed the pre-order mark of a million units with AT&T. Pre-orders began on October 7th & iPhone 4S was sold out within 24 hours. AT&T, Verizon & Sprint will be shipping iPhone 4S starting tomorrow.
