The iPhone Upgrade Program is the easiest way to get a new iPhone every year, as well as the security and protection of AppleCare+. You can purchase iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, or iPhone XR with the iPhone Upgrade Program on apple.com, using the Apple Store app, or at an Apple Store.
Start by checking your upgrade status to see if you’re eligible for a new iPhone. If you are, you can either proceed with your upgrade online or visit an Apple Store and chat with a Specialist. You can upgrade anytime after six months, as long as you’ve made the equivalent of at least 12 payments. If you have to pay an additional amount to meet your 12 payments, you can do it when you upgrade.
If you completed the carrier activation steps for AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon when you purchased your new iPhone online, it will arrive ready to use. Just turn it on and follow the onscreen instructions to set it up. If you chose to skip carrier activation at the time of purchase, you’ll need to contact your wireless carrier or visit an Apple Store to enable cellular services. You can also set up your iPhone without a nano-SIM using Wi-Fi. You will need an active nano-SIM to enable cellular services.
If you selected an iPhone for T-Mobile, it will come with the appropriate nano-SIM, but you’ll need to contact T-Mobile or visit an Apple Store to enable cellular services.
If you selected the SIM-free iPhone, you’ll need to insert your own nano-SIM card or obtain one from the supported carrier of your choice and activate it in order to use cellular services on your iPhone. If Sprint is your carrier, you’ll need to get a new nano-SIM card in order to activate your iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, or iPhone XR.
All iPhone models are world phones, so you can use them almost anywhere. Whether you are a GSM or CDMA network customer, you can roam internationally on GSM networks in over 200 countries or regions around the world. Availability of LTE data varies in some countries or regions and depends on carrier support for certain LTE radio frequencies. Contact your wireless carrier for more information regarding international roaming policies and rates.
