My daughter will be in Hawaii later in in the month; and is very keen on buying an iPhone 8 from the AppleStore there.
However, as she does actually live in NZ; there are a couple of questions:
1. I believe that the modern iPhones these days have the same cell-phone chipset regardless of country of purchase, so it should work over here with no major issues; is this correct?
2. Warranty. Apple's Warranty states something along the lines of "Apple may restrict warranty service for iphone ... to the country where Apple ... originally sold the device".
Has anyone had recent experience with warranty service in NZ with an iPhone purchased in-store in another country?
Does anyone know if AppleCare purchased in NZ would provide coverage for an iPhone originally purchased in-store in another country?
