Vikas Chadha, CEO of Jumbo Electronics, anticipates strong demand for the iPhone 15, citing the allure of new colors, finishes, and upgrades that are likely to attract both early adopters and those considering a switch to the iOS ecosystem.

Rajat Asthana, COO of Eros Group, is banking on the incremental changes in features, including USB-C charging, a new titanium casing for the iPhone Pro, the faster A17 chipset, improved camera capabilities, and a new action button. These enhancements are expected to generate significant interest among Apple loyalists who haven't upgraded their devices in several years.

Retailers are gearing up for the iPhone 15 launch by offering a range of promotions and incentives to entice customers. Jumbo Electronics plans to introduce trade-in offers, allowing customers to exchange their old phones for significant discounts on the new models. They will also provide financing options such as equated monthly installments (EMI) and buy-now-pay-later plans.

Consumers in the UAE have shown a preference for flagship and high-end products with top-notch specifications, and this trend is expected to continue with the iPhone 15. Retailers anticipate that the Pro models, particularly the Pro Max, will be in high demand due to the substantial enhancements they offer.

As the new iPhone models hit the market, older generations are expected to see price drops. Jumbo Electronics CEO Vikas Chadha estimates price reductions of 7 to 12 percent for older iPhone models, while Rajat Asthana expects drops of 10 to 15 percent. However, more significant price reductions may take some time to materialize.
