Apple iPhone 8 was launched in India by Akash Ambani, Reliance Jio's chief of strategy.

The new iPhones - iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone Plus, were launched at an event in India today. During the iPhone 8 launch event, Apple CEO Tim Cook also spoke via a video stream. The iPhone 8 Plus is priced at Rs 73,000 for the 64GB variant and Rs 86,000 for the 256GB one.

I was glad to see most of the technology inside the iPhone X is also inside the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

Apple has launched iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in 64 GB and 256 GB variants in Space Grey, Gold and Silver. Buyers of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus can go for upcoming Rs 799 plan that provides 90 GB of data, free SMSes, subscription to Jio apps and free calls.

Flipkart offers on iPhone 8 models incorporate trade markdown of up to Rs. 23,000 on the 64GB and 256GB stockpiling choices for the two cell phones. However, users would have to use the Jio SIM card to avail of this scheme and will be required to pay the company's monthly plan of ₹799 for one year.

To start with the buyback guarantee, Jio has announced that Reliance Digital will offer a special 70 percent buyback on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. We're excited to be building so many new relationships in India, including tens of thousands of developers across the country now writing apps for iOS. The iPhone X comes without a home button, which made customers confused at first. This is unless you plan to get the iPhone X in November. Airtel and Vodafone have also been listed as authorised sellers for iPhone 8 series. You still will be left with a lumpsum amount to upgrade to your next iPhone 9 or 9 Plus. The new iPhones, successors to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus feature an all-new glass design, a better camera, powerful chipset and wireless charging.

Earlier this month, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were revealed during the 10th Apple anniversary. Reliance Digital also offers the Citi Cashback of Rs 10,000 on an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus purchase. Unlike the Note 7, however, there aren't any reports of fires from Apple's new smartphone and the problem doesn't appear to be widespread. For now iPhone 8 Plus owners should watch their phones for signs of swelling when charging just to be safe until we know more. It is possible that you don't like that Pixel phone you are using (although everyone loves the Pixel phones so chances are low that you don't like it).

Customers will have to use their Citibank debit or credit cards on or before September 29 6pm to avail of the offer.
