Apple's iPhone XR/XS trade-in offer now has a monthly payment option

Apple's iPhone XR/XS trade-in offer now has a monthly payment option
The 2018 iPhone lineup

Since late November, Apple has been running a trade-in offer which increases the value of older devices by up to $100 when an iPhone XR or iPhone XS/XS Max is purchased. As part of this, the iPhone XR can be purchased for as little as $449 while the iPhone XS series starts at $699 when an older model is replaced.

While this does represent a big discount over their usual retail prices, not everyone is willing to spend so much money on a phone at once. So, in the hope of boosting sales again, Apple has now implemented a monthly payment option. As part of this, the iPhone XR can be acquired for $18.99/month while the premium iPhone XS models start at $29.99/month for 24 months.

This latest option collects no interest and requires a credit check prior to signing the contract. It’s also worth noting that it isn’t available online. Instead, consumers must arrange this deal at one of Apple’s multiple retail stores.

Despite being advertised as a ‘limited time’ deal since the very beginning, Apple’s trade-in deal is about to enter its third month of availability. And going by this latest extension, it appears Apple has no plans to end it just yet. Especially considering the weak sales the company has faced since the 2018 iPhone series launched last quarter.
