iPhone X call delay problem gets Apple's attention

Hundreds of iPhone X owners can't answer incoming calls (sometimes), Apple is looking into the issue

The price hikes, effective immediately, come less than a week after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government said it was increasing import duties on mobile phones.

According to those familiar with the iOS roadmap, Apple had planned to completely overhaul the homescreen of the iPhone - replacing the grid of icons that now confronts users. The 256GB variant of the phone has now been priced at Rs 1,08,930, which was selling for Rs 1,05,720.

After the hardware malfunction of iPhone 7, seems like a new hassle has appeared for Apple. The iPhone 8 (64GB) has now been priced at Rs 67,940 while the 256GB variant will cost Rs 81,500. A few days ago, Apple offered free repairs to iPhone 7 owners who complained that their phones had no cellular service even when cellular coverage was available. Similarly, Apple iPhone 7 Plus price starts at Rs 62,840 and goes all the way up to Rs 72,060. If you are looking to buy an expensive new iPhone without spending a premium on them unnecessarily, booking one right now on Amazon is a sensible choice. Apple Watch Series 3 Global Positioning System 38mm is now available for Rs 32,890, up from Rs 29,000.

ASIO takes possession of 'Cabinet Files' from ABC
The filing cabinets were bought for "small change" and sat unopened for several months until the locks were forced with a drill. ABC revealed Wednesday it had thousands of Cabinet documents that had been found inside surplus government filing cabinets.

Apple has reportedly notified suppliers that it will cut its iPhone X production target for the first quarter of 2018 by 50 percent to around 20 million units.

The latest price increase comes weeks after similar price increase on iPhones was announced back in December 2017. Although, Apple didn't increase the pricing of the Apple Watch that time, but now we will be experiencing that too. The 128GB model of the iPhone 7 is now available for Rs. 61,560 up from the previous price tag of Rs. 59,910. While the base 64GB variant of the phone will now start from Rs. 95,390 instead of Rs. 92,430.

As for the Apple Watch models, the price hike is quite prominent. A second post, stating the problem also affects the iPhone 6, has had over 300 people click the button in agreement; many comments replying to this post cite the iPhone X as having the issue.
