You might remember back in October, when Sprint announced a slightly upgraded “iPhone for Life” plan that allowed customers to basically lease the new iPhone over the course of a year before being eligible for an upgrade. This was handy for users because it allowed them to upgrade annually instead of every two years. Well now Sprint has announced an “iPad for Life” plan.
It works just like the iPhone plan, so customers can lease an iPad Air 2 or the iPad mini 3 for as low as $17 a month and it will run for 24-months. The price increases depending on which model you want and how much storage you want. This will be good news for customers who want to spread out payments.
At the end of the 24-month period, you can choose to turn in the device for a newer model and continue the leasing plan, or hold onto the current model and keep leasing it. You can also buy it outright from Sprint, or turn it to end your contract. What do you think? Would you go for this plan?
Leasing the 16GB iPad mini 3 will cost you $408 over 24 months, versus buying it outright from Apple for $399. At least you have some extra options.
