IPhone 8 Plus Battery Swelling Problem Crops Up in Taiwanā€¯

Apple's iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus was launched in India, in partnership with Reliance Jio.

The newly launched phones from stables of Apple will be available for purchase from September 29 onwards at a starting price of Rs 64,000.

Not even a month has passed since the launch of iPhone 8 and iPhone Plus, and there is bad news for Apple. They have been priced at Rs.64,000 for iPhone 8 and Rs.73,000 for iPhone 8 Plus.

Reliance Jio has an offer on both the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus models (iPhone X to arrive in November) giving customers a 70 percent of the iPhone's value. Reliance presently has not committed on any specific time-frame for the availability and delivery of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Realistically, you can expect to get a discount of around Rs 10,000 if you trading in a high-end phone for the new iPhone 8 or the iPhone 8 Plus. They also support wireless charging and are powered by a superior A11 Bionic chipset which Apple claims is 70% faster than the A10 Fusion chipset used in last year's iPhones. Reliance Jio has announced special offers and plans for the buyers of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus smartphones.

Apple also added a new distributor in India to its existing panel of four this year, pointing to the importance it has accorded to the market. The iPhone X comes without a home button, which made customers confused at first.

If you want the iPhone X, wait six weeks and buy it. If you don't like the iPhone, the iPhone 8 or the iPhone 8 Plus don't have anything new that will change your mind.
