They don't ship to India I think. You'd have to get it shipped to US and tell someone to either courier it or get I themselves. Not sure about custom charges.

Hey there,

Did you get a chance to update your iPhone (is it a 6/ 6 +?) with this one? Any initial impressions? Am downloading this one for my iPhone6 at the moment.

I hope this one has the call/ wifi signal drop bugs squashed once and for all!

Cheerio,
-Shivang Gandotra

Ive been using the iPhone 6 for a week now and it is first class.
8.3 is great.

I ve also upgraded my iPhone 4S to 8.3 and so far it works fine. That 4S is just kept as a backup phone because I don't really need two phones...

The option to switch between LTE, 3G and 2G has been put back on the 8.3. Fantastic! Also, the Wi-Fried issue seems to have been taken care of so, the 6 is running at its all time best. Dont know if its just me but, post the 8.3 update, been getting a bit more battery backup as well.

Post the 8.2 upgrade, my iPhone 5 was working very slow. So I am a bit skeptical whether to upgrade to 8.3 or not.
Any inputs will be really helpful.

I just upgraded my 5C to 8.3 from 8.2 . Feels a wee better. Though it was a bit sluggish just after the upgrade. 2G selection option is good to have. Overall its good to upgrade.
