Has the time finally come for you to get rid of your old iPhone? Replacing it can seem like a big and daunting task. But you’ll certainly appreciate the upgrades once they’ve been made, so don’t hesitate to get into the swing of things. There are some things you’ll want to know to do before you get started though. That way, you won’t make as many mistakes or get overwhelmed by the project. Read on to find out how your upgrade can be made as smooth as possible.
Know the Differences Between the Newer Models
What’s defined as a new model will of course depend on which iPhone you have right now. If you’re still using a 6, an iPhone 7 might represent a decent enough improvement, and that’ll mean you can save some money because the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X are considerably more expensive. It’s worth comparing the specs of these phones to find out which is right for you.
Keep the Same Number
One of the most stressful things about getting a new phone is having to tell everyone that you have a new number, but what if you didn’t have to do that at all? Switching from ID mobile can now be done without changing your number, and the same applies when you buy a new iPhone. You can transfer the number across with the help of the service you use and it could hardly be easier.
Think About Size and Space
The practical things are often the things that matter most when it comes to buying a new phone. The size of the phone is up to you because the iPhone comes in a regular smaller size and a ‘Plus’ size that’s obviously bigger. So you need to decide which you value more; the greater screen real estate or the more portable and easy to handle size? On top of that, you will need to think about the memory space you have available. You’ll obviously pay for more of it.
Compare Deals First
Before you commit to making any purchases, you should compare all the deals that are out there. If you buy your iPhone directly from Apple, you will probably not get the best deal. The bargains tend to come from other retailers, so these are the offers you should probably be comparing.
Finalise Your Payment Plan
There are many ways to buy a phone. You can pay nothing at all up front and then pay more each month. Or you can buy your phone outright straight away and then pay a small amounts for your texts, calls and data each month. It’s up to your to decide which payment method is best for you.
For many people, the process of upgrading their iPhone can be stressful and unnecessarily trying. That doesn’t have to be the case though. As long as you take the right steps, buy from the right people and make use of the guide above, you’ll be able to make the process streamlined and painless for you.
