Look, that's a 5G antenna - so not usable. But i think because of its presence, the regular signal is also far better. And the same can be seen in my phone

Thanks Swaroop.

As far as I remember, it could be used for upto 5-6 devices. Just go to their website and search for whatsapp transfer software, you’ll find all the details.

I bought an iPhone 11 for my sister, here in US.

She might need a wall charger as currently she is using an android device.
Is this good? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...X9EWVXLJ&psc=1

Also, could you please let me know, what minimum accessories one would require for this phone?

Please advise!

Usually, antennas are specially designed for the frequency they're supposed to support. Considering this one is for 5g mm waves, my guess is that it won't help in the reception of the usual 2G/3G/4G signals, not 100% sure though. However, If it looks like the below image in real life too, for me it's a little too ugly for an otherwise beautiful device

Right! So, any suggestions for an compatible earphone OR is it better to purchase a USB-C to 3.5mm dongle?

Ever since iPhone 8 plus, I have moved to Bluetooth earphones and recently to TWS ones. The freedom it brings is addictive, and there are some decent stealthy ones as well. If your sis is no audiophile, I'd suggest going for a Bluetooth solution over wired ones. Have enough budget? Don't look anywhere other than the Apple AirPods.

Its always good to have Indian pin, like I learnt the hard way - especially while traveling or in office (Mine was British). Picked up an original charger from Apple India paying 1900 bucks

Bluetooth and if possible air pods. Immense convenience.

Or wait for some more time. Apple announced Airpod max . Its the best thing ever and glides into the Apple ecosystem smoothly. Haven't read enough about noise cancellation and sound quality but sure it will be great.

Apple has launched AirPods Max. Available in 5 colours, Space Grey, Silver, Green, Sky Blue & Pink they are priced at INR 59,900.

This article mentions
Quote:
AirPods Max have been announced globally and will begin shipping around the world and in India on December 15.

The AirPods Max are fitted with custom 40mm dynamic drivers from Apple and its proprietary H1 chip. The headphones have a total of nine microphones, eight of which also assist the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) function to block noise from all directions. It has a single-button press Transparency mode similar to what Apple's true wireless stereo (TWS) earphones, the AirPods Pro, also feature. The wireless headphones connect using Bluetooth v5.

The wireless headphones claim to deliver up to 20 hours of listening time on a single charge with ANC enabled. According to Apple, five minutes of charge time provides around an hour and a half of listening time.

I use this
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...&psc=1&fpw=alm
Multiple ports for multiple devices including PD port

Due to cable instead of pins, no plugspreading issues which chargers have.

And since its an AC 2 prong cable, you can replace it for 50rs in India with a generic indian pin one
