iPhone Upgrade Program Worth It?

TL;DR Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program is actually a good deal if you plan to upgrade to the latest iPhone every year.

Apple’s events are always exciting to see what new devices and features they release. After using the iPhone 7 the past 2 years it was time to upgrade to the new iPhone. I usually preorder my phones on Verizon’s site but it so happens that this year, Verizon’s site was being overloaded. After trying multiple times I decided to try Apple’s site to buy the new iPhone. Apple’s site worked great and had integration with all the major carriers. I was able to get the iPhone Xs 256gb in space grey. Before finishing the pre-order, I was presented with three options.

After some quick math at 3am, the thought of getting a new phone each year, and AppleCare+, I decided to go with the iPhone Upgrade Program.  Compare the Upgrade Options Read More

Over the past few years of writing for this blog, I’ve come to realize the value it brings and I think it’s something everyone should have.

How to Manually Update Google Chrome Extensions
