  • Apple in 2019 and the case of the expensive iPhone

    jdgaz said:
    Apple users will very likely remain and grow their apple purchases. The ecosystem and the reliability / security continue to draw converts. Phones simply last longer than they used to. 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.
    What does this say about the Apple Upgrade program now?  Should we there be a new option with lower monthly payments and a longer upgrade period?

    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...
