The Easiest Way To Upgrade To The Latest iPhone: Get a new iPhone every year with the Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program.
The Easiest Way To Upgrade To The Latest iPhone

You’re eligible to upgrade to a new iPhone once you’ve made 12 payments. Just trade in your current iPhone and start a new plan. It’s that easy.

When you join the iPhone Upgrade Program, AppleCare+ is included in your monthly payments. And now you have the option to expand your coverage to AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss for an additional cost. Simply choose the coverage that’s right for you.

Low monthly payments

You don’t have to pay for your new iPhone all at once. You can simply pay over time. The full cost of your iPhone and selected AppleCare+ coverage is spread out over 24 months with 0% interest. And you can upgrade once you’ve made the equivalent of 12 payments.

Works with your carrier

You’re buying directly from Apple. Which means no more financing your iPhone through your carrier or committing to a multiyear service contract. Your new iPhone will work with your carrier, so you won’t have to make any changes to your rate plan. And if you ever decide to switch carriers after you activate your iPhone with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon, you can easily do that, too.
