According to a data by Redsheer, the sale is expected to grow by over 60 percent this year, as e-commerce firms are looking to woo customers from tier 2 and 3 cities, apart from big metros, alongside new consumers who have come online due to the aggressive push by telecom major Reliance Jio in increasing data access. The same offer is available through the Amazon and Jiostore. Consumers placing the pre-orders for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plsu on or before 26th September, Flipkart will deliver the phone by 30th September.

Other players are also offering 4-5-day sale events, that starts on September 20, will go on for 9-10 days.

In a bid to get iPhone users to stay on with Amazon, the e-commerce major is working with Reliance Jio to offer 70% value of their existing iPhones when they upgrade to a new model next year. Other purchasing options include no cost EMIs, 10 percent additional cashback on purchases made through HDFC Bank credit or debit cards, and the Jio 70 percent buyback offer.

Jio will also offer an exclusive tariff plan for the two Apple smartphones. Under its Rs 799 plan, postpaid Jio users will get 90GB of data per month along with free subscription to Jio's premium applications.
