While the internet is flooded with speculations on the possible price of the new iPhone 5C 8GB, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has silently chopped off $100 from all variants of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. The App Store in the U.S. lists iPhone 5C 16 GB at $549 now (it was $649 yesterday), iPhone 5S 16 GB is available at $649. The decision was taken at a time when the iPhone maker introduced an 8GB variant of iPhone 5C in fewer countries, like Australia, China and few other European markets.

The 8GB variant of iPhone 5C is yet to be introduced in the U.S. and many other countries though, it’s evident that Apple is trying to intensify the competition by lowering the price of 8GB iPhone 5C price up to $500. However, it’s quite unlikely that Apple would ever introduce an 8GB iPhone 5C in the U.S. but emerging markets – the likes of India and China, hold a greater potential for the iPhone 5C 8GB variant.

Apple could price tag iPhone 5C 8GB in India at Rs. 30,000 or higher, and the 16GB variant of iPhone 5C would be available at approximately Rs. 35,000. This will make iPhone an affordable affair for those who like to adopt latest technology trends and are failing to find any strong alternative for the Samsung Galaxy S4 or Note 2 at the same price.

The new price strategy on the iPhone, especially the iPhone 5C, could prove a game changer for Apple – at least in emerging markets like China and India. Apple recorded a 400% jump in the sales of the obsolete iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S in India and with the new price tags on the latest iPhone 5C 8GB the company is looking forward to grow at the cost of Samsung.

On the iPad offerings, Apple has ditched iPhone 2 but announced that the iPad 4 would be available at a discounted price of $399 onwards. The 16GB WiFi version of the iPhone 4 would be available at $399 while the 16GB Wi-Fi +Cellular model would be price tagged with $529.
