Once the deal went live at 12 midnight on September 22nd, the iPhone 13 (128GB) was available for Rs 49,999, and with card incentives, the handset was available for Rs 47,999. Flipkart restocked the iPhone 13 a few minutes later, albeit at a higher price. Flipkart raised the price to Rs 52,999 and subsequently to Rs 54,999.
