  • This is the first time a domestic telecom operator is offering such a hefty cashback

Reliance Jio has launched an official partnership with Apple right ahead of the launch of Apple's flagship iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in India today at 6 PM.

The iPhone 8, priced at Rs 64,000 for a 64GB variant and Rs 77,000 for a 256 GB one, comes to India within a week of its global launch. The fact it just happened to brand new iPhone 8 units is obviously a red flag for Apple, which will investigate the incidents. Moreover, the iPhone 8 duos will come available across 900 cities in India from more than 2000 Reliance Digital outlets. For instance, the iPhone 8 Plus 256GB is priced at Rs. 86,000 and the cashback offer will give buyers back Rs. 52,976. The Citibank Rs. 10,000 cash back offer is material on buys made by means of Jio also. You will need to download MyJio app and use Jio data services for a year to be eligible for this cashback offer, which can be used to buy the next generation iPhone or other electronica gadgets from Reliance Digital stores.

It also does not have support for HDR, which could be something fans will have to consider when they are trying to decide if they should wait for the iPhone X or not.

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. Since then, speculations were made about the availability of the products in India as well. In case you haven't pre-ordered till now, you can still do it. A news has arrived from Taiwan that an iPhone 8 Plus exploded while charging. And after spending a week with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, I realize that the cheaper phones are going to be ideal for a ton of people.

iPhone 8 features a 12 Megapixel iSight rear camera with Quad LED True Tone flash and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).

Customers will have to recharge with a minimum of Rs 799 per month as monthly recharge on Jio's network to avail the scheme.

The iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus are Apple's first smartphones to incorporate laser welding to achieve the most efficient water and dust resistance.

Apple started building its own processors five years ago, and they really have a speed advantage because they control the hardware and the software.

Jio has also announced special tariff plans for both the iPhones.

If you are curious about how to unlock your phone using Face ID or apprehensive about the feature, CBS News has some answers to your questions. 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.
