Apple's Trade-Up Program gives you credit for a newer iPhone
Now that Apple has released three brand new iPhones, each with a steep price tag, the company is offering a customers a way to upgrade yet save money.
To mark the tenth anniversary of the iPhone, Apple released two new devices, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, as well as the premium iPhone X model.
In the UAE, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are available in 64GB and 256GB models and costs will begin from AED 2,849 and the iPhone X which has the same storage capacity will cost AED 4,099.
However, if you have an existing iPhone in working condition, Apple will give you up to AED 900 credit towards a new iPhone via its Trade-Up Program.
