Apple waranty is global mate.



Ive been told that while the warranty is global, that’s just for failures etc. I’ve also been told (by Apple themselves) that a phone purchased in a different country than the one you’re taking it into for warranty work will under certain circumstances have to be sent back to that country for repair or replacement. In the case of this non standard IPhone I’d say they have zero stock in uk stores. You may have to prove you’ve paid import tax.

Applecare is certainly not global for iphones, some people have successfully managed to get past this but it’s a huge risk considering a replacement is close to £600.

Many insurance companies also drop into the small print that your phone must be uk purchased, that’s worth checking too.

I have spent quite some time speaking to AppleCare UK, I’d recommend anyone thinking of this to do the same if you generally purchase their cover. Likewise if you insure your phone check that this would be covered under your premium.

Quite a few providers are launching dual sim (esim) before the end of the year, basically when Apple release the iOS upgrade to switch on the ability to use esim. You’re not stuck with one esim, you can switch up to 10 I believe. For me this is far superior than having to carry a few SIM cards. If I can get my main contract sim on the esim then for me, it’s even better than taking a risk with the dual sim Hong Kong version. Your experience or requirements may be different.

This. They'll honour the global warranty, but won't have tools, expertise or replacements to fulfill that locally with a geographically specific variant.

It just means you'll have to wait a few weeks, which may or may not be worth the saving to you.
Never had an issue with apple global warranty, that is one of the reasons to choose Apple products. They will cover you in any official store
You won’t get your screen replaced under warranty, which is probably the most common reason for iPhones to need to go back to the store. AppleCare specifically isn’t global for iPhones and iPads. It’s only valid in the country of purchase.

Theyve moved the goalposts over the years, which is a shame.

Not for HK version. They've done this on purpose to remain dual sims for Asian market.

They do its called a note 9
If import duty is charged then this would be more expensive than buying it in the UK. Cold for me.

Sure PayPal only Insured up to £500
I don’t understand why anyone would want dual sim, what’s the point? You can just put diversion on a work phone to send to you normal phone . Why 2?

Two SIM cards, i.e. 2 operators, gives better network coverage. I can use my EE contract mostly but have a Vodafone PAYG SIM for the odd time I’m in a remote area with no EE signal.

I’ll probably stick with EE and get an O2 PAYG SIM for the O2 perks like early concert bookings etc.

I also like the option of using a work SIM in my personal iPhone which will hopefully give me full control. Sure, I can just divert my work phone to my iPhone X but what if I forget to cancel the divert when I’m off work? I’ll still get work calls, possibly forwarded overseas, and won’t be able to cancel them if I left my work phone behind. Having a second SIM solves that problem.

Most people won’t appreciate or need two SIMs but for some it will be really significant.
This is obviously a different model iPhone to that normally sold in the UK but it appears to be better in some respects: two physical nano SIM slots plus support for CDMA networks as used by some US carriers. I can’t see anything that would cause it to have poorer performance in the UK as it appears to support the same carrier bands: techwalls.com/iph…es/

Debatable whether the benefits will be useful to many people or whether the lack of eSIM would be any detriment long term.

not with iPhones!!


Hi all,

I just thought I would share my experience when I buy iPhones from the US. There has never been a problem with taking the phone to a store in the UK to get it fixed. If the phone can’t be fixed, then they can’t give you a UK replacement but they do hold over country versions of the iPhone in the UK so you normally have to wait a couple of days and then go back to get the phone changed. I don’t know if this would apply for Hk as I have only had experience of the global warrenty for phones I purchased in the US. Also they don’t ask if you have paid the relevant taxes etc. Just thought I would share in case it helped anyone as this is something I have experienced and there were no issues at all.
