The iPhone 7 is finally out in India and it’s now the telecom industry’s turn to churn out various offers. Chief among them is Reliance Jio which has announced that it’ll be giving a year’s worth of service for free to all new iPhone owners.

Reliance Jio’s 12-month complimentary service will encompass free voice calling, 20GB of 4G data, unlimited LTE access at night, 40GB of WiFi data, unrestricted SMS, 30 ISD minutes, and a Jio apps subscription worth Rs 1250. The scheme covers not just the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but also the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and iPhone SE.

Furthermore, the Rs 1499 plan only gets activated after Jio’s current Welcome Offer expires on 31 December this year.
