why won’t you get warranty? Apple has international warranty no matter where you purchase the device from

Don't get me wrong, but apple on current scenario doesn’t worth your money. If you are going to spend 96k, then buy S24 ultra which is available on 98k on offline market in India. One of my friend purchased S24 ultra this weekend just, and its actually feels different! But again its your money, that's just my personal view, nothing to demote you. Also, in few days iphone 16 will be released. And shifting  from android to apple is a hard task as you have to compromise a lot of things which we taken for granted in android. One thing I can say is that if you are buying an expensive phone, then go for offline, you will find huge discount. Warrant claim is an important issue, in case something went wrong you’ll be in borehole. Please don't take my comment otherwise.

If its your first apple device you need to know lot of tips and quirks to affectively use it. ( knowing that you are medium android user so far, a mere 15% perfirmace wont matter to you with 15pro) I suggest to buy 14pro max and save rest. 

I am sure you enjoy the savings as well as your first apple device. 

Check with your frnd , whats the price for 14 pro max there. Should be cheapest

My honest opinion is to wait out for this year if you have a decent phone... With apple pushing AI this year's phone should have better AI capability on chip

Nahh man, you ain't a 'medium segment' (android) person if you even passingly considered paying for a device which in India.. coats more than sone of the decent two-wheelers do.

You already up📈 there.

Apple Inc. officially words its warranty policy like a grey area. So it is not like there is ZERO chance of warranty support in India, for devices bought in other markets
'Technically' the support facilities in market "XYZ" can choose to refuse support for devices bought from 'ABC'.. or anywhere outside "XYZ". But that does not really happen in India at-least.

Basically only you can make this decision, irrespective of what we/others say.

It is your money, your willingness, your excitement and also your aspirations.. so if they later make you feel contended about it, why not.

Else, a hundred thousand INR can do a lot of things elsewhere too.

Recently moved to iphone 15 from OnePlus 7, iphone is a pathetic phone and software is very very bad, optimised, to ease of access.

Porting from Android was even more pathetic, think of porting back to android (I think they won't even bother supporting it).

Many features are not available, inbuilt calculator doesn't even show history, think of other features based on this.

In android if I press hold any icon it directs to settings here there is no concept as such.

Multi app usage like rotating between apps is very hard. In android during OTP page I used to navigate between apps, now i have to improve memory to remember the code🤣.

Keyboard is next level pathetic, auto corrects to very incorrect words.

Many many issues if you are an android lover.

Still using OnePlus parallelly and posted this msg from OnePlus.
