If you are thinking of buying a new iPhone, now is the time to do it.
For a limited time, Apple offers up to $ 100 additional credit if you exchange an old device through its Giveback program. For those who own an iPhone 6, 6 Plus or 6S in particular, it's a good deal: Apple offers twice as much credit as it usually does for these devices.
Only one problem: unlike Apple's standard recovery program, this offer requires the purchase of a new device instead of receiving the amount on a gift card.
Mashable was the first to discover the promotion.
The deal seems to be another clear sign that sales of new iPhones are lagging behind.
Earlier this month, Apple announced that it would no longer report the sales figure of iPhone – or its products – on future earnings calls, which investors have dismissed as a bad omen for sales. iPhone this year.
The Wall Street Journal also announced that Apple had reduced production orders for all iPhone models, charging a low demand.
And Foxconn, the Chinese company that makes the majority of iPhones, would reduce its spending by 20 billion yuan, or $ 2.9 billion, ahead of what an internal memo could constitute "a very difficult and competitive year. ", as Bloomberg says.
Nevertheless, the low demand for new iPhones is good news for those looking to buy one, at least for now. If you are trading an iPhone 7 Plus or an iPhone 8, you could save up to $ 300 on your new phone.
