Every Autumn Apple introduces its new iPhone lineup to much fanfare about the upgraded hardware, which usually includes a faster processor and more storage, and sometimes an upgraded camera or display. Regardless of what new features are included, they always come with a price hike. This year's lineup, in addition to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, includes the 10th anniversary iPhone X, which features Apple's first OLED display and tops out at a whopping $1149. At the other end of the spectrum, the least expensive iPhone 8 will still set you back $699.
The announcement of T-Mobile's Jump device upgrade program has made some waves in the wireless market. Now AT&T has launched Next, which promises to allow smartphone and tablet owners to get an annual upgrade. For the most part, iPhones are now subsidized by AT&T in exchange for a two-year contract.
The subscriber pays $200 up front for the 16 GB iPhone 5, contributing to the purchase price. When it's time to upgrade, the old device is owned by the customer and the process starts all over again. AT&T Next operates differently. Participants in the program will pay monthly installments to cover the cost of the phone. There is no down payment at the beginning of service.
There's only one thing better than upgrading your iPhone, and that's getting money back for the old one you're replacing. If you're looking to selling the iPhone there are several options available. Totem has established a comprehensive service that streamlines the process and promises competitive pricing.
Simplicity means a lot, because it can take time and effort to post a used iPhone on eBay or Craigslist with no guarantee of payment or pricing. One advantage of HelloTotem.com is a quote up front of exactly what Totem is willing to pay. Accepting the quote puts the process in motion and a pre-paid mailer is sent to your address.
But wait, there's more! There are still some details about the iPhone 3G S that were not announced at the WWDC keynote speech. In fact, we're betting that even more information will be revealed when the new model actually hits the streets on June 19th.
Apple did not mention the specifications of new hardware in the iPhone 3G S on Monday. Turns out a T-Mobile site in the Netherlands has verified that the RAM has been doubled to 256 MB.
During the keynote address at WWDC 2009 Phil Schiller, the senior vice president of Apple's worldwide product marketing, revealed the new iPhone 3GS. The new iPhone model has the same design as the iPhone 3G, however the S stands for speed.
The new model will be faster and have a higher storage capacity. Apple also announced that an 8GB version of the iPhone 3G will sell for $99.
