"Industry revenues were further adversely impacted this quarter due to the reduction in worldwide termination rates", Gopal Vittal, MD and CEO - India & South Asia, Bharti Airtel said in a statement.

The user may want to purchase the Apple Watch but may not necessarily want to buy the iPhone. Reliance Jio will take pre-bookings from its website, Reliance Digital Stores, Jio Stores for the Apple Watch Series 3 Cellular. For instance, Airtel divested 83 million shares of Bharti Infratel for Rs 3,325 crore through secondary share sale previous year.

Well, with cellular connectivity, customers don't have to keep their Apple Watch Series 3 paired to their iPhones, which also means you don't have to carry around your iPhones wherever you go just to ensure Internet connectivity on the watch (and to also make calls).

Without naming Jio, Gopal Vittal, MD and CEO, India and South Asia, Bharti Airtel said: "The telecom industry continues to witness below cost, artificially suppressed pricing".

Vodafone also moved an application seeking to place on record some documents it had obtained through the Right to Information Act as well as seeking from TRAI details of the test services run by Jio in the initial months after its launch. Customers wishing to activate their mobile connection with the new watch must first update their iPhone to iOS 11.3 and have watchOS 4.3 running.

Florida Police Use Linus Phillip's Finger To Try To Unlock Phone
Police in Florida have been criticised for allegedly entering a funeral home in a futile bid to unlock a dead man's smartphone. Legally, the detectives were in the right because under the law, there is no expectation of privacy after death.

Bharti Airtel, however, remained India's biggest phone company with 295.78 million customers, while Reliance Jio's subscriber base swelled to 177.13 million, end-February. The new model is now also listed on the Apple website without price.

Jio says users will be able to answer the incoming call on either the iPhone or Apple Watch 3 (GPS+Cellular) as both the devices will show the incoming call at the same time. Now, the cellular variant of Apple Watch is coming to India.

Reliance Jio has introduced its JioEverywhereConnect service that lets users use the same mobile number on their iPhone as well as their Apple Watch 3 LTE. Be that as it may, this won't work amid International Roaming. As mentioned earlier, customers can use the same number on both the iPhone and smartwatch and users can continue to be on any of the Jio's existing plans.

Also, Apple Watch Series (with future software updates) will be able to detect subtle/high changes in heartbeats and warn the user of cardiac arrhythmias, or abnormal heart rhythms. The person you're calling will see your Jio mobile number (This is the same number they will see when you call from your iPhone).
