Airtel will start taking pre-orders for the Apple iPhone XS and XS Max smartphones starting at 12:01 AM on September 21. According to the company's website, Airtel Thanks members can pre-order the device tonight and the telco will take pre-bookings until 11:59 PM, September 24. Airtel also stated that the 'pre-booking is a privileged access only for selected Airtel customers.' As mentioned, all the Airtel Thanks members will be able to see a banner on My Airtel app. In addition, Airtel would be offering offline delivery for the pre-booked users. This essentially means that Airtel users can walk into any of the designated Airtel retail outlets to pick up their device likely to be available on the same day as the retail launch. Furthermore, Airtel Online Store also has some launch offers lined up for both the smartphones.
