Yesterday we revealed the likely drop date for Apple’s latest iteration of the iPhone to be September 18 (let the countdown commence), and for many of you iPhone 6 owners who upgraded during the last round, the news might have given you a serious case of FOMO. According to Apple Insider, 20 percent of iPhone users have the latest handset — that’s one in five. We’ve got some good news, folks. Sprint just rolled out a new promo plan that allows iPhone users (yes, even iPhone 6 users!) to upgrade EVERY. YEAR. It’s called the iPhone Forever plan and this is how it works.
Just make sure you have the iPhone 6/6 Plus before September 10. Then, trade it in before December 31 in order to lock in their special promotional upgrade rate of $15 a month for the following year (the iPhone Forever plan’s monthly rate is usually $22). And success! You’ll have the 6S! (ha, see what we did there?) Something to keep in mind though, these prices only apply to the 16GB options — so if you really love your apps and photos, prepare to shell out a little more.
Early upgrade plans aren’t new, but Sprint’s plan is the first that was created exclusively towards iPhone lovers. T-Mobile users, your phone company has a similar JUMP! On Demand deal that’ll let you jump from the 6 to the 6S for $15 monthly installments. AT&T Next allows users to upgrade early in 12, 18 or 24 month increments, which they implemented prior to the release of the iPhone 6 and doesn’t always guarantee you’ll be able to trade in right when the latest iPhone handset drops. And Verizon’s Edge plan lets you pay off your early upgrade for $27 per month.
