When it comes to our smartphones and devices, it can be tough to let go of our pocket-sized personal assistants and treat ourselves to a new one - even when it's long overdue. There comes a time where your needs change and an upgrade is required. And even if your device isn't at the end of its tech lifespan – sometimes it’s just time to treat yourself and hit refresh with a new digi-buddy. 

Upgrading can be a painless and smooth process and it doesn’t have to cost you an arm or leg either. iPhone users can rejoice at the offers found in iStore, the home of iPhone in South Africa, that allow them to easily upgrade their iPhone contracts and save big while doing so.

Here are five reasons that iStore is your best bet when upgrading your iPhone:

You don’t need to go anywhere else to upgrade your iPhone

At iStore, you get to experience their motto of them being an “Everything iPhone Under One Roof” store. You can get your mobile contract upgrades on Vodacom, MTN, or Telkom in-store – regardless of where you originally signed up for the contract. You’re also exposed to highly trained experts on the floor who can walk and talk you through the iPhone models along with their incredible features available on each to help you find the iPhone best fit for you.

You can save thousands by trading in and trading up to a new iPhone

If your existing iPhone is in good-to-great condition, you could save up to R15,000 when you trade it in for a newer iPhone model at iStore. All you need to do is bring your iPhone into the store for a cost evaluation. You’ll be rewarded with higher-than-market value, which you can use towards the purchase of a new iPhone, or to bring down the cost of a new contract or upgrade. Allowing you to save big and still get a shiny new device in the process.

You’ll get extra peace of mind for free with an iCare Plus Extended Warranty

Why should you care about iCare? Well, iCare offers you an extended two-year warranty on your iPhone that includes a screen replacement. Another bonus is that you get this exciting offer without having to pay extra. iCare Plus is valued at R1,999 and you can get it exclusively at iStore – you can find more information on this on the iStore website.

You can upgrade your iPhone from the comfort of home

For those hoping to keep a social distance and stay safe – you’re able to upgrade your iPhone from your couch with the online upgrading service iStore offers. You can upgrade your mobile contract with Vodacom, MTN, or Telkom by simply visiting the iStore cellular upgrade webpage and have your new iPhone delivered straight to your doorstep with a few clicks.

You’ll get free expert technical support and training on iPhone

If you’re still undecided on what new iPhone to get or perhaps just need a run-through on technical support advice for your new iPhone – a visit to the highly-trained technicians on the floor in iStore will be sure to help you out and this service is complimentary. Additionally, iStore hosts free iStore Meets Workshops that are held on Zoom where they share expert tips and advice to help you get the most out of your iPhone. You can sign up and find out more about this offer by visiting the iStore Meets webpage.

Whether you are struggling to find the best deal or can’t decide which iPhone model to choose, a quick visit to iStore or their website will be sure to iron out any queries you have when shopping for your new iPhone.
