Now that Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are officially available from authorised resellers, telecom companies are trying to score a big win as well. Airtel and Reliance Jio have new 4G data offers in an attempt to lure iPhone 7 buyers on to their mobile network.

Reliance Jio says the offer is not limited to just limited to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus but also extends to iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone SE. In a statement, Reliance Jio says, “This offer will be available for new iPhone purchases across all Reliance Digital stores and select Apple Premium Resellers (APR) and Apple Authorized Resellers (AAR).”

Apple iPhones are already eligible for Reliance Jio’s ‘Free Welcome Offer’ which gives free data and voice calls till December 31, 2016.
