We used to crave for a new phone every year or two due to changes from 2G-3G-4G, extended battery life, and larger screens. We need not chase the technology anymore. Now a 1000 hand set is really a 4 year investment. Or about 20 bucks a month.
Using the entry level XS + Apple Care ($999 + $199 = $1,198) as an example:
Option 1: Two year payment of $49.91 - free upgrade after one year (current program)
Option 2: Four year payment of $24.95- free upgrade after two years?
Not sure that would work out since Apple Care would run out half way through...
