For prepaid Jio users, the 12-month contract will come with validity period of 28 days, whereas for postpaid users it will be according to their bill cycle.

Apple's iPhone X may not be widely available until well into 2018, with production delays and huge demand to blame for the hold up.

Buyers can opt for a buyback offer from Jio for Rs 99 while buying Apple iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus which allows them to have 70 per cent of the cost of the back after 12 months.

Customers can avail this offer at Reliance Digital or Amazon India as well as MyJio app, and Jio Store.
