Telecom giant Bharti Airtel has started delivering the latest smartphones by Apple, the iPhone XS, and the iPhone XS Max to customers through its “flagship stores”. The company started giving early delivery to select customers who had pre-booked the devices in advance on Airtel Online store. According to the information by Airtel, Ankit Aggarwal from Delhi NCR region was “amongst the first few customers” in India to receive the iPhone XS Max. To mark the occasion, CEO for Bharti Airtel Delhi NCR, Mr. Ravi Negi was present to hand the phone to Ankit.

Interested buyers can head to the Online store and get about 5 percent cash back on EMI options with a payback time of 12 and 24 months. The company is also offering about ‘5X reward points’ for non-EMI transactions if users make the purchase with the help of their Citibank or Axis Bank credit cards. One thing to note here is that the Apple iPhone XS Max with 512GB internal storage is out of stock at the time of writing. For context, the latest flagship smartphones by Apple went on sale on September 28, 2018, with the iPhone XS and XS Max going on sale.

Watch: Apple iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR First Look

Apple has not launched the smaller sibling, the Apple iPhone XR and it is likely that the company may launch it around October end in the Indian market.

In addition to the iPhone XR, the company has also not launched the Apple Watch Series 4 in India. We are not sure about when the company is planning to launch the wearable product in India. The wearable will not come with the ECG feature in India because of certification issues.
