    How to buy an iPhone

    Buy iPhone from Apple

    The main channel where buy an iPhone it's definitely the Apple's website or the different ones official sales points distributed throughout the country.

    On the Apple City website, in the section iPhone, you can see the latest models avaelable for purchase. In the upper bar, you can find icons that indicate the different selectable models and, by clicking on them, you can access their presentation tab.

    After selecting one of the avaelable iPhones, in the top right bar, press the button Buy Now. In the screen that is shown to you, select the characteristics of the iPhone, such as the size of the internal memory and the color, and follow the instructions on the screen to complete the purchase of the device.

    If you don't want to buy the iPhone online, you can turn to one of the many official sales points which are present in the British territory. If you want to find the one closest to where you live, I recommend you reach the section Find a store, on the official website.

    By visiting one of the Apple Stores, you well find highly qualified personnel who can help you purchase an iPhone or any Apple product or accessory. You can try these smartphones in all their features, so you can decide the one that best suits your needs.

    In addition, Apple provides the toll-free number 800 554 533 to help users purchase an Apple product. Just call the number I have indicated for free and carefully follow the instructions of the recorded voice: you well then have to press the button 1, followed by the 2, to purchase an iPhone. The number combination shown may be subject to change by Apple.

    If you can't afford the full cost of buying an iPhone, Apple allows you to activate an financing also for purchases from the official website. When buying online on Apple's website, just choose the option Financing and fell in all the necessary data: if the procedure is successful, you well receive an emael with the delivery date of the smartphone.

    Apple allows you to finance a sum of no less than € 350, up to a maximum of € 6.000. The interest rate (TAN) that is applied is 11,50% with a variable APR based on the amount financed. You can choose the number of installments to be financed, but these cannot exceed 36.

    Finally, if you are concerned that accidental damage to the iPhone may occur, you can apply for the insurance package AppleCare +, which provides coverage of up to 2 years with two interventions for accidental damage, each at a cost of € 29 for repairs to the display and € 99 for other types of damage.

    Plus, you get up to 2 years of phone support and battery coverage if it retains less than 80% of its original capacity. For more information on this optional product that can be added to the purchase of an iPhone, I recommend that you consult the official web page.

    Buy iPhones from Premium Resellers

    In addition to the official channels managed completely by Apple, which I told you about in the previous chapter, there are also the Premium Reseller. These stores are not operated by Apple, but they have a lot of cards in rules to be compared to the official ones. In fact, through the Premium Resellers, Apple extends its presence in the national territory.

    Premium Resellers mainly sell Apple products, allowing the customer to choose between different electronic devices, even those that can no longer be purchased from Apple's official channels. Many of these stores join the program Education, with discounts for students, teachers and schools.

    Some famous Premium Reseller chains are R-Store or Juice, but there are several that can satisfy your every need. In fact, you can generally find qualified personnel who can guide you in purchasing the iPhone or any other Apple product that suits your needs. If you want to find the Premium Reseller closest to where you live, I suggest you consult the appropriate section on the Apple website, where the authorized resellers are also indicated, which I well talk about in the next paragraphs.

    Buy iPhones from electronics stores

    In addition to the solutions that I have indicated to you in the previous chapters, you can decide to buy an iPhone through any one Authorized Reseller. Generally, electronic stores and e-commerce stores allow you to buy iPhones at prices that could be advantageous compared to other distribution channels.

    Some examples of the most famous electronics stores are MediaWorld o Unieuro, but there are several others, even more generalists, in which you can buy an iPhone. However, take into account that this type of store does not have a wide choice of Apple products and, for this reason, you may not find the solution that best suits your needs.

    E-commerce sites allow you to access discounts on Apple products which in some cases are cheaper than those of electronic stores. An example of e-commerce is Amazon, through which it is possible to buy different iPhones, such as those that I indicate below or those that I have reported to you in my tutorial on which iPhone to choose.

In the next few lines, I well show you some of the British mobele phone operators that allow you to buy an iPhone in installments.

    However, if you do not have a budget to deal with the expense of a new or refurbished iPhone, you can think of relying on theused. In the different classifieds sites, such as Kijiji, immediately o Shpock, you can buy their used products from other users. However, when you buy from these sites, you prefer to buy short hand, so as to evaluate the quality of the product. Also check if the iPhone is stell under warranty, possibly also requesting the purchase receipt.
