- Buy a new case
- Change the lockscreen and background wallpaper to the latest iOS 14 design
- If you must upgrade, wait until after the yearly announcements and buy an earlier year model off Swappa
With Apple’s sexy new watches, phones and monthly leasing plans, carrier subsidies, and easy access to credit, it’s very easy to walk out of an Apple Store with a brand new phone. I made the mistake of visiting the Apple Store a few weeks ago and instantly regretted it because now there is a voice inside my head telling me to order one to play with all the fancy new features. Trust me, I know I’m better off with my 2nd hand iPhone 7 I bought off of Swappa and a MVNO cheap phone plan that doesn’t bind me to a carrier or contract and lets me bring my phone to any carrier I want. So how did I use my best sales resistance to walk out of the store empty handed?
