Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program is now available online, meaning that users are no longer required to visit a retail store to avail Cupertino's smartphone upgrade service.
iPhone Upgrade Program Makes Its Way Online
With the launch of iPhone 6s later last year, Apple took the wraps off its iPhone Upgrade Program as well, which allowed users to grab the latest iPhone on the carrier of their choice while having the convenience of paying off the device's cost in 24 easy monthly installments. But that's not all, users also got the luxury of upgrading to a new iPhone every year, something which would require them to break a carrier's contract otherwise, subsequently paying a penalty for doing so.
The iPhone Upgrade Program gives you an easier way to get a new iPhone every year, and the security and protection of AppleCare+. You’re even free to choose the carrier and rate plan that work for you.
Today, Apple is taking things up a notch and is bringing the iPhone Upgrade Program online, which means that users aren't required to visit a physical retail store in order to get things rolling. We firmly believe that this is a smart move from the Cupertino giant, as it will, hopefully, lure in more people on the iPhone side of the fence.
While the iPhone Upgrade Program might not end up saving you a lot of money, but you have the added advantage of AppleCare+ onboard. The plan will set you back $129 if you buy it separately, and it covers a bunch of things on your iPhone.
With AppleCare+ included, you get up to two years of hardware repairs, software support, and coverage for up to two incidents of accidental damage (AppleCare+ for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is $129 when sold separately).2 If you have questions about using your iPhone or just want to know how to set up email, we’re here to help.
In other words - AppleCare+ is absolutely gold for those who are buying an iPhone for the first time, ensuring that things are covered well every step along the way.
