FM, Arun Jaitley announced that the customs duty on imported mobile phones will be increased from 15% to 20%. Since Apple imports over 80% of the smartphones, the company has decided to increase the prices. This is not the first time, Apple has increased the prices; in December, when import duty on smartphones was increased to 15% from 10%, iPhone prices were increased.
