I just got an email that says I am eligible to upgrade now with the Apple upgrade program. It has photos of the new red iPhones. I have done the Apple upgrade program twice...each time on launch day so I got my iPhone 7plus on launch day...I wonder why it has me eligible now? Anyone else get this? I'm not going to upgrade as I am debating switching to Verizon and I would do that when I switch but not yet.

Interesting. Which carrier do you have? I'm currently on version and know I'm available for an update. But I don't know. And I'm not sure if this apple payment plan I'm on via Verizon is considered part of the Apple upgrade program? To be honest, I don't recall reading anything about the Apple Update Program? But I received an email as well. Is this what your email looked like?

OK
Sounds similar to the next program with at&t you can always upgrade early just pay off the remaining installments due.

I didn't get that email, but I checked on Apple.com to see if I was eligible. Since I have the 128GB 7+, I have to pay $249.98...or just wait for the iPhone 8...

After this months payment: $208

It looked somewhat similar but the subject was that I am eligible to upgrade and had a paragraph or two about that at the beginning. I have ATT now

I guess it makes sense if one can upgrade after 6 months. I'll just wait until the year is up and then upgrade and maybe switch to Verizon for the next phone:). I am so tempted by that gorgeous red color though!!

Yeah. But sounds like you have a good plan if you want to switch carriers. Plus, that pretty RED phone might be less money by the time you make the switch from AT&T to VZW

Oh I'll get the 8 instead! I like the new stuff! The red is tempting! If it had a black front I would be even more tempted! I can stick with ATT now that they gave us tethering too! I was about 3 hours from switching;)! Hopefully there will be a red 8! Or something fun! Stopped by the store to see it and it is pretty:).

Apple has really good marketing A few months before the new phone release they just change colors to promote sales and upgrades , amazing what red can do
