Apple announced three new iPhones this year and the iPhone X was the one that stole the show. For the first time ever, Apple offered a bezel-less phone with a handful of new features including a remarkably accurate Face ID. That apart, the iPhone X arrives with an expensive price tag, especially in India. In the meanwhile, the Reliance Jio bundle is much cheaper and comes coupled with some great cashback offer.
The pre-booking for the iPhone X has already begun at Reliance Digital and jio.com from 27th of October, i.e today. The deliveries for the iPhone X will, however, start from the November 3. Let’s take a closer look at the Reliance Jio and iPhone X bundling offer and make an attempt to deduce the effective pricing for the same,
- iPhone X can be pre-booked from jio.com and Reliance Digital Store. In order to prebook one is required to pay an advance amount of Rs 1,999. The iPhone X with Reliance Jio will also be made available on amazon.in.

- Reliance Digital is offering a 70% cash back offer for the iPhone X. This ensures that the buyers will fetch a maximum of 70% on returning the device after a year, of course, the offer is subjected to the usual terms and conditions.
The iPhone X users will be offered the Jio Rs 799 plan. In this plan, the users will be given 3GB of Data/Day alongside free voice calls, SMS and the complimentary subscription to Jio’s Premium applications. The same plan is offered with a validity of 28 days for the prepaid users. Flipkart is also offering Rs 10,000 discount with the iPhone X but is offering a maximum buyback guarantee of Rs 52,000 (roughly translates to around 58% BuyBack)
