Now Enroll for Apple Upgrade Program Online
The Upgrade Program introduced by Apple a year ago was the most convenient and cost effective way to get one’s hands on the new iPhone every year. The Program has now been taken online, meaning that one no longer needs to physically walk into an Apple store to avail the Program.Advertisement
As MacRumors points out, Apple’s Upgrade Program came into being with the launch of iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, which let people take home a new and better iPhone every 12 months by enrolling in the Program and paying a monthly installment. The installments start from $32.41 for people who own the iPhone S range and $36.58 for iPhone S Plus range. People can also choose to sign up for a 24-month plan which reduces the monthly installments considerably.
The Verge had called Apple’s Upgrade Program as the “best way to buy an iPhone 6S or 6S Plus when it debuted a year ago. Only the people who are subscribed to AppleCare+ can reap the benefits of the Upgrade Program. Taking the program online was a way to ensure that a greater number of people can get enrolled into the Program, regardless of where they stay and whether they have access to an Apple Store nearby.
According to Engadget, the main reason for the Upgrade Program going online is due to Apple’s recently lenient approach on accepting damaged iPhones when it came to exchanging it for a brand new one. After Apple decided to sync the Program with AppleCare+, which is covers broken/ severely scratched mobile screens, the Upgrade Program now allows one to trade a “reasonably damaged” iPhone with a new one.
The Apple Upgrade Program is currently applicable for iPhone users in the U.S. However, it might expand to further parts of the world at a later period, after assessing the response to the online launch.
