iPhones don’t require any introduction. The first iPhone started a revolution in the smartphone industry and the revolution still continues. iPhones have become so iconic that they have a unimaginably large following all around the world. From the build quality to user experience, these beautifully crafted Apple iOS devices have always been a game changer of their time. But there is something more that attracts people towards iPhones; It’s the AppleCare warranty and after sales services offered directly by Apple or it’s partners. And this kind of a direct warranty backed by great after sales service was something, we Sri Lankans were not fortunate enough to experience.
Well, that was the story till few days ago. Yes, the long wait is finally over. Dialog Axiata, Sri Lanka’s largest and fastest growing mobile network, has become the first and only authorized partner and service provider for Apple iPhones in Sri Lanka. This unprecedented feat backed by Dialog’s proven track record of customer service has opened new pathway for Sri Lankans to experience Apple’s latest innovations without any hassles or worries about warranty and service.
It is also remarkable that Dialog was the first network to launch mobile 4G – LTE service in Sri Lanka and users of latest iPhone devices have the opportunity to experience super fast internet speeds thanks to Dialog 4G. Unlike any other manufacturers, Apple selectively approves mobile service providers to offer 4G-LTE connectivity to iPhones; and Dialog has now been officially approved as an LTE service provider too.
Dialog is now selling the beautifully designed iPhone 5S and the colourful iPhone 5C devices along with iPhone 4S devices. All iPhones retailed through Dialog will carry 1 year AppleCare warranty too. Following is the list of colour options available at Dialog for iPhones:
