I placed my order for iPhone 11 around 2 am this morning and had got a free airpod and now I see, it is gone. So it may be an instant hit indeed.

They did actually and for quite sometime. I got mine too. And they clearly mentioned "offer available till stocks last".

Itís a 18W fast charger which needs to be bought separately. You can buy it from any Apple store for around 27xx. The cable supplied in your 11 box will suffice.

I bought the fast charger when I purchased the phone last year. 18 watts, but really good enough and a must buy. The 5 watt charger is a pain.

I only see a 20W power adapter there. I guess that should suffice?

Also, need an extra cable to be kept in office. I guess Belkin should be good enough or are there better ones?

20W should be even better, get that PPS (is this for the SQ Priority Passenger service?). Belkin is good enough as they are making the MagSafe Wireless chargers for the 12 series also or check for the same cable from Apple itself and get that. Both should be cool.

Cheers

I don't think that was the case, I leisurely explored Apple India site's iPhone 11 page till 1 am, keyed in my iphone 6s details for trade in and got the options to select airpod for free or airpod pro and airpod wireless case at some 4-8k extra. (There was also an option for free engraving on airpod wireless case and airpod pro). Apple quoted a decent 7k for my old phone as compared to Amazon and final payment of 47k after exchange was the deal for me. But I really have my heart set on iphone 12 mini as I hate big phones and love the old iPhone SE type candybar form factor of new iphone 12 series so reluctantly did not go through the transaction payment and slightly regret now thinking if I made a right call

Anyways, congratulations to those who got this deal. Excellent VFM I feel for a very very competent phone

1- You can use any compatible wireless pad, Qi wireless chargers works fine.

2- Unless it has apple supported wireless charger, it will take almost same as normal apple charger.

3) I believe Qi chargers do work

4) Being apple it should but I haven't used it

My first Iphone & Airpods. Have been using Android phones till now. Had some queries:

1) How can I charge Iphone wirelessly? Seems I have to buy a wireless charger separately. If yes, which one should I buy?

2) How much time the Phone takes for full charge from Wireless Charger?

3) Can AirPods PRO be charged Wirelessly?

4) Do AIRPODS PRO work seamlessley with Macbook Air?
1)You need a wireless charger for it, I have a Mophie dual charger, it can charge two wireless devices at the same time.

2)Its not a fast charger so it takes a couple of hours for my 11Pro, haven't checked the exact time frame.

3)Yes Airpods pro can be charged wirelessly using the same charger for the iPhone.

4)Yes they do, I dont have a mac, but a friend uses them with a Mac.

I read on this thread that the Belkin cable is better & stronger than the ones provided by Apple. Hence, going for it. Btw, I have no idea what SQ Priority Pass is.

Also guys, please suggest a Power Bank (not too heavy) which supports fast charging.

Thats quite a decent amount for 4-5yr old iPhone 6s. Mine is 4.5yr old, I guess I'll just keep it as a spare phone since I recently changed its battery. There's a problem with the screen, not sure if anyone here has had any experience getting their screen changed at their doorstep by Cashify or someone. Don't mind doing it if costs around 4k.

6S is the last one with the headphone jack. So a bit of a rare kind. I'll keep mine for a while at least

I wasn't aware of this. I had the fastest sale on OLX with my 128 iPhone 7 this time. Though wasn't a big increment over Apple's quoted exchange price of 11000 ( got 12500), but the transaction was smooth with a well informed buyer, who bought it for personal use. Wiped my phone clean and all and not much to data mine , incase someone wants to do it, as the phone was lying around as a spare with no data in it. All set for the 12 mini now , but I will most probably wait for Christmas/Republic day sale on Amazon/Flipkart and then take a call.

Is the below Mi Power Bank 3i any good? Needed one specifically for my upcoming iPhone 11. The Power Bank claims to support 18W fast charging. Or are there better ones like Anker,etc? If so, kindly provide a link.
