So the iPhone 7 just came out at a whopping ₹63,000. I have been there, when I think I need an upgrade to my phone which never gives up on me but sometimes your life needs an upgrade by buying experiences and not things. You could either make calls or fly to an exotic location, offering you priceless memories. Here is a list of places to fly to instead of a shiny new Apple.
