On the eve of the iPhone Xc and Xs unveiling, Americans signal they would borrow to buy them

iPhone Xs, Plus, or whatever Apple has named them, represents no less than 28 million Americans in total. About 30% of the surveyed had no idea that their credit score will be checked if they choose to finance their new iPhones, which is saying something about the debt culture sweeping the nation, and the lengths one would go to get shiny new things.It turns out that the amount of surveyed who would take money they don't have to get the expensive new
The expected prices of the 2018 crop are $749 for the 6.1" LCD iPhone, $899 for the iPhone Xs, and $1049 for the Xs Plus, Max, or whatever it's titled. Add up to $200 extra for the eventual 512GB models, and debt might be a tempting solution to get Apple's finest this year, especially if you are living paycheck to paycheck.

Most carriers will let you pay in installments which is almost like paying off a loan.

I will NEVER borrow money nor lease a phone. It's a phone. Not a house or a car.

Hmmm how about saving money? I've saved some bucks and waited to see what's the new lineup's offering, if they don't infatuate me I shall go for the 8+. Save money people! Loans are bad if you can't handle them.
