The new 2018 iPhone series is just one day away from being shown to the world. Pre-orders for the new iPhone XS, XS Max and XC will follow soon, so you can be one of the first users of the latest smartphones from Apple in the hands. However, before you skip the pre-order page, check that you can even update from your current iOS or Android phone.
The purchase of a smartphone in 2018 is a little different than in the iPhone history as well as the history of most smartphones. In the past, carriers have subsidized the full price of the phone, so that users pay only a fraction of the total cost while entering into contracts that typically take two years. Now customers pay the entire bill for iPhones, but how they do it depends on them.
How your current upgrade plan works
If you've recently purchased a phone, either through Apple or your wireless service provider, and you have not done it Pay completely, when you first get it, you're likely to in a financing plan. These plans reduce the cost of the iPhone over 24 or 30 months. Some of these plans can only be for the phone alone with mobile service (as with Apple iPhone payments), while the majority are connected to an upgradeable plan.
Example: For an upgrade plan, if a phone costs $ 1
If you're a part of Apple's iPhone upgrade program and want to upgrade to a new 2018 model, you'll need to pay 12 full months of payments to your Citizens before you can upgrade to a new device One loan. Your account must be in perfect condition at the bank, and you must have AppleCare + for the entirety of the loan. ( See full terms.)
Some iPhone X owners now have to wait or pay more
Because the iPhone X was released in early November last year (pre-orders for it began in late October), most Customers who have bought one have not paid more than 11 months of their contract before 2018 iPhone pre-orders open.
For example, if you bought the iPhone X directly when it came out with the Apple iPhone upgrade program, you will need to pay a one month payment on the Citizens One loan before you can pre-order the new device. For those of you who bought it in November or later, you need to get more money out of your pocket before you pre-order a new one.
Method 1: Check the Upgrade Status Apple or Your Mobile Service Provider
Apple and All Phone Providers have their own way of telling customers how to check their iPhone upgrade status. However, if you're part of the iPhone upgrade program, it's easier to verify your eligibility. The following method also shows you how many payments you need to make before upgrading your device.
If you have not used the iPhone Upgrade program, contact your wireless service provider. You can call them or check your status in one of their shops, but the following methods are more convenient.
- AT & T: Call * 639 #, and then follow the link that was sent to your phone. You can also log into MyAT & T to verify your eligibility.
- Sprint: Sign in to Sprint with your Sprint account information.
- T-Mobile: Log in to your T-Mobile account online or in the app. If you are authorized to receive a new phone, you should see an "Upgrade" button. (Further details.)
- Verizon: Enter your phone number in Verizon's Upgrade Checker. You'll probably need to enter your Verizon account password to continue. (Texting # 874 can also tell you if you can upgrade.)
Method 2: Try to order online at the Apple Store
This works both ways. You can do this easily if pre-orders for the iPhone XS, XS Max or XC are available, or you can now do it with any iPhone available online at the Apple Store (without, of course, making a purchase). It's probably best to test it first with an iPhone you do not want because pre-orders can sell out very quickly.
