If you have considered purchasing a new iPhone, now is the time to do it.
For a limited time, Apple offers up to $ 100 extra in credit if you trade old devices through its Giveback program. For anyone with an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, or 6S in particular, this is a sweet deal: Apple offers twice as much credit as usual for these devices.
There is only one catch: Unlike Apple's standard trading program, this offer requires you to buy a new device rather than accept the amount on the gift card
Mashable is the first to see a promotion.
The deal seems to be another clear sign that new iPhone sales are lagging behind.
Earlier this month, Apple announced it would no longer report iPhone sales numbers – or sales numbers for its products – on future revenue calls, a move investors interpreted as a bad sign for this year's iPhone sales.
The Wall Street Journal also reported that Apple had cut production orders for all iPhone models, blaming weak demand.
And Foxconn, a Chinese company that makes most of the iPhone, is said to cut 20 billion yuan, or 2.9 billion dollars, in costs ahead of what internal memos say could be "a very difficult and competitive year," as reported by Bloomberg.
However, low demand for the new iPhone provides good news for anyone who wants to buy one, at least for now. If you trade the iPhone 7 Plus or iPhone 8, you can see as much as $ 300 for your new cellphone.
