Highlights

    • Apple will now provide international warranty on all their iPhone devices
    • iPhone X to go on pre-order in India on October 27
    • iPhone X cheaper in the US compared to India

Apple on Wednesday announced that all its iPhone smartphones will now come with one year of international warranty. This means that Apple will honour its iPhone warranty in every country even if the users don’t have Apple Care on their smartphones. Interestingly, the international warranty will only be valid on iPhone devices which are factory unlocked, and not carrier locked. Previously, the company only provided international warranty on products without SIM cards including the MacBook, iPod and iPad products. Now people can get the iPhone devices from where they are cheap without worrying about the warranty.

People could previously also get international warranty by purchasing Apple Care for the smartphone, however, that would drive the cost of the device up but in turn, end up getting much more protection. This offer of the international warranty applies to all the iPhone devices bought after October 25.

Additionally, the Apple iPhone X will be up for pre-order starting October 27 in India. However, after getting the news that international warranty will be available on the iPhone, we recommend that you get the iPhone X from the US as the company has priced the 64GB base model for Rs. 89,000 in India whereas it is selling for $999 (Approximately Rs. 65,000) in the US.
