Apple Could Soon Let You Purchase iPhones, iPads Via New Hardware Subscription Service

Apple wants to change the way you purchase and upgrade your devices, with the company reportedly planning to launch a hardware subscription service as soon as later this year.

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the new program lets you get your hands on the latest iPhones and iPads for a yet-to-be-determined monthly fee. Instead of splitting the cost of the device you want to get across 12- or 24-month instalments, you’ll just have to keep paying a subscription fee to keep enjoying your benefits – the same way you would with the Cupertino company’s other services like Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade and Apple Music. And your subscription will be similarly managed through your Apple account.

The program could also offer you the option to swap the model you have for a newer one when it releases. Apple refreshes its lineup of offerings annually, so if this is ever implemented, you can carry and use a new iPhone every year.
