I don't think so. There are only a few kiosks that have this product. I know that Delhi, Gurgaon and Noida has one kiosk each in one of their shopping malls.

You can visit their website for kiosks in your city. If not then you could look at finding the product online and applying it yourself, using youtube videos as reference.

Hi

I have a June 2016 iphone 5s 16 GB, running on ios 9.2

Is it worth upgrading to iOS 10?
Does it make the phone slow and also impact the battery ?

I use my phone for calls, messaging and booking cabs and also browsing the internet.

I would like to have a good battery life. Will iOS 10 improve that ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi. The performance is in no way compromised. The notifications have quite a lot of changes.

No big difference in battery life either. Go ahead with the update.

Battery life is slightly better than 9.3.x (the last version of iOS which I was using). You can upgrade without any concern.

Thank you so much for the update.
I also don't like the look and feel of the new iOS. Maybe I will just have to live with it.

Thanks.

Got a new 4G SIM today. The problem still continues :( I guess I need to visit service center soon. As a last resort I will try to install iOS 10.1. Currently the phone is running on iOS 10.0.x

Any one using the I Phone 7 plus here? How is the performance? Planning to upgrade from my humble moto g3. Was planning to buy from the US (currently here in Houston) and there is a big shortage of the matt black 128 gb handsets.

Hey, I have a 7 plus 128 GB. Been using it for over 2 weeks now. Have to say I'm fairly impressed, with the performance, camera and the battery life.

The camera is the highlight though, simply steals the show.

A couple of examples of the portrait mode.

This was the first image clicked using the phone.

A picture of a friend of mine.

I've been astounded by the results you can achieve using the portrait mode and it is definitely a highlight of the phone.
Go ahead with your purchase. I myself had to wait for 20 days after launch for the Jet black colour. Although the matte black was available here still.

I switched to the 7 Plus from the 6 Plus and it was a massive leap forward. Performance is simply lightning quick, but the improvement is in the camera, particularly the low light performance and the portrait mode. All in all, a super upgrade. Go for it.

Hello All,

Any idea when Apple Watch Series 2 would be available in the Indian market. The watch was launched on October-7th but still no sign. I even visited exclusive Apple resellers but they too don't have a date when the watch would be available.

I think it's already available here in kolkata. The other day I saw the Nike version on display at the apple store.

I am using a 7plus and a 7! There is a perceivable difference in the speed of 7 plus though both seem to be the same hardware.

Awesome experience with both!!

Isn't that already expected as both have a difference in RAM capacity. 7 Plus has 3GB RAM as compared to 7's 2GB.

My iphone 6 + slipped out of my hand at an airport parking and fell face down and the screen is completely shattered

Any idea what would be the screen replacement cost? Also, is there any other non-Apple options which are cheaper?
