Apple launches MacBook upgrade program so you can always get the newest one
The news: Apple has officially launched a new upgrade program where you can get a new MacBook as soon as every 90 days…but it’s only available for business customers right now.
- As spotted first by Max Weinbach, the program is available now on Apple’s business portal…but you can also apply here
- You can get any MacBook Apple sells right now for 3% of their retail list prices: 13-inch MacBook Air for $30/mo, 13-inch MacBook Pro for $39/mo, 14-inch MacBook Pro for $60/mo or 16-inch MacBook Pro for $75/mo
- This MacBook upgrade program sounds very similar to Apple’s public iPhone upgrade program that has been offered for years
Our take: I have a feeling that Apple is testing the waters with their business customers first, but I see no reason as to why they wouldn’t offer this to customers eventually. More folks than you would think like having the latest tech from Apple, and with the success of the iPhone upgrade program, the precedent is already here.
