Navi Mumbai: The newly launched iPhone 8 and 8 plus will be supporting Hindi dictation, the tech giant’s Chief Executive Tim Cook said on Friday.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will be available for Rs64,000 onwards. “We got a new keyboard for India and we now support 11 local languages. The iPhone now takes dictation in Hindi," he said in a video message.

The message from Cook was played at an event at Reliance Jio’s corporate headquarters here, where the Mukesh Ambani-led company announced a slew of offers for the latest series of iPhones. Jio launched a buyback scheme, offering a 70% discount for customers to upgrade handsets after a year.

“We promise a 70% buyback for iPhone 8, 8+ and 10, after one year," Jio’s director, and Ambani’s son, Akash Ambani, said at the launch. This offer can be availed by customers opting for a plan of Rs799 per month or above.

“This offer not only makes the device much more affordable but also enables customers to upgrade to newer models after utilising the buyback schemes," a company statement said. In a video message, Mukesh Ambani said Jio’s partnership with Apple will deliver “best value" and a better customer experience.
