in India, according to a report in GSMArena
– a technology portal. The new warranty clauses allow iPhone users to get their devices diagnosed, repaired and checked around the globe and will be covered under Apple’s warranty terms and conditions.
offers international warranty on almost all its product. iPhones were kept out of international warranty till now. With new warranty terms at place, the company is expected to honour the warranty terms irrespective of the geography or the country of origin.
However, only the factory-unlocked versions of the iPhones are eligible for international warranty. Carrier-locked models still does not get international warranty, even if the user manages to unlock them.
The move might significantly spike the imports of iPhones in India from abroad as the devices cost significantly cheaper in other markets such as the US, than in India.
