Apple Event Breakdown
How to Pick Out an iPhone That's Right for You
“Compare iPhone models” — Apple
We discuss factors you should consider when purchasing a new iPhone: size of the hardware, what kinds of cases will fit, storage capacity, timing, cost, and protection.
Refurb Tracker is a good resource for tracking when refurbished iPhones & iPads (and other Apple gear) go on sale
B&H Photo is a good place to order online because they do not charge sales tax or shipping
Apple provides for an Education Discount, but your school must be participating in the program.
Be sure to consider protecting your investment by reviewing warranty and insurance plans. Look at your carrier’s offering and compare the features and cost to AppleCare or SquareTrade. Some carrier plans cover theft while others only cover specific types of damage.
Is it a trade-off or a true disadvantage?
