    Hi Bharat dats great news dat apple is finally launching their products quicker in India. But the cost factor still remains. I want to get the iphone 5 32gb but since its gonna be priced at roughly 56k. So can I purchase an iphone from Singapore or us factory unlocked where prices are marginally cheaper and will I get 1 year of international warranty and can I add the apple care plan to my phone procured from abroad but using in India. My main concern is warranty if I won’t get warranty if purchased from abroad then will have to give in to the high apple pricing.  What to do ??

    • amankatyal

      @GauravSampat apple does not give international warranty to Iphones .the warranty is limited to the country of purchase . It happened with me for my 4s .i had to get it replaced from usa .however , international warranty stands for all other apple products excluding i phone.

      • GauravSampat

        @amankatyal thanks for the info but I’m still hearing stuff dat if u purchase factory unlocked then u can avail international warranty and any idea about apple care plans for iphone ???

        • amankatyal

          @GauravSampat bro , my phone was a 4s factory unlocked purchased in jan2012 from us 649$.i am giving you a first hand experience.i had issues with my screen . i tried everything, but no apple store will entertain any phone from outside india .they have T&C which clearly state that warranty is limited to the country of origin . apple care is only an extended warranty for another year , it also gives you an option to upgrade your phone ,when the next model comes ,at a very nominal cost . So you are better off spending a bit extra and buying it from here only .unless there is a price difference of approx 8k , u must not take a risk for such a high end product.

        • @amankatyal @GauravSampat    incorrect, A factory unlocked iPhone brought from a country and an Official Apple Store will be under warranty anywhere in the world where there is another official Apple store. India does not have an Official Apple store, only franchisee and Reliance co branded stores hence the policy is different . Also an iPhone bought in India will not be under warranty anywhere else in the World. Such is Life!

        • amankatyal

          @Bharat Nagpal  @amankatyal thanks for the reply Bharat , so that clears the point …that in India ,they do not entertain foreign i phones .The apple stores in India seem to give an impression that they are run by Apple itself. thanks for clearing the doubt .but they do attend and replace faulty units bought from India itself .So that actually is what the customer eventually wants …an after sale service .But with my experience , I had a factory unlocked phone from usa ,bought from apple store usa , no apple store attended my concern here in delhi …kamla nagar/cp/select city . lucky i had someone visiting usa , and there the phone was replaced in 10mins. 
          now desperately waiting for i phone 5 release . i was getting a canada bill phone @43000 but i rejected the offer ….only because i am banking on your blog . Till now , no other site has confirmed a 26th oct release… hope your info is correct !!!1
