Thoughts on the iPhone Upgrade Program

Today's Above Avalon story: 

  • Thoughts on the iPhone Upgrade Program  

Today's email is dedicated to the iPhone Upgrade Program. I have been getting an increasing number of questions about the program and what it means for Apple. We begin by going over all of the details, including some of the information not widely known in the press. Next, we address the short- and long-term implications from the program on Apple and the mobile carriers. We conclude by discussing a number of general observations about the iPhone Upgrade Program and if it's actually a good deal for consumers.

I divided today's email into a few sections:

  • The Details
  • History
  • Dollars and Cents
  • Short-Term Impacts
  • Long-Term Impacts
  • Overall Observations
  • Is It a Good Deal?
