    Iphone Payments 6th Mar 18 at 3:32 PM
    Decided it would be best to get a new phone, my current iPhone 6 is running out of memory as itís only 16gb.

    Iíve decided on an iPhone 8, and saw the article on here about iPhone payments, saying for a 64gb iPhone 8, you pay £69 up front, then £31.50 for 20 months with 0% interest. Sounds great. Trouble is that when I open the link, select iPhone 8 64gb, itís telling me at the bottom of the screen that it in fact will be £69 up front but 20 further payments of £37.95 per month.

    Can anyone shed some light on this please ?

    I would suggest the article is either out of date or just plain wrong.

    It's simply that the MSE article hasn't been updated.

    Edit: Actually, it seem to be that the page the MSE article takes you to is about the Apple Upgrade Programme which is a different thing. It appears that Apple are no longer doing the iPhone Payments plan. This explains the price difference, and that maybe the MSE article needs a refresh even though it states it is updated weekly!

    You'd need to contact the forum team rather than board guides if you think an article is out of date. BGs are just like you and me.

    Surely the confirmation is whether it is available on the Apple website? If it's not there then it's not there, no matter what the MSE article may or may not say. 3rd party websites often have out of date information unfortunately.

    This offer included apple care at £6.45 per month, (£129 total) which I believe is mandatory on the upgrade programme

    I was only asking to see if anyone else had experienced it, and if itís being advertised as a deal on the main site, then they surely would want to know if itís still displaying a link to an expired or non existent offer. Like I say, itís just a bit misleading for people like me who use the site to find what good deals are out there

    OP you must be referring to this here:

    https://www.apple.com/uk/shop/iphone/iphone-upgrade-program

    Click on the link that says 'You can choose to make low monthly payments without Apple Care+ Learn more about iPhone Payments' and iPhone 8 is indeed still available (in store only) for a £69 deposit with 20 monthly repayments of £31.50.
    It's not your credit score that counts, it's your credit history. Any replies are my own personal opinion and not a representation of my employer.
