Looking to get a jump on the iPhone 6 market, the wireless carrier will take trade-ins for the iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5C, and 5S.
Hot on the heels of Apple announcing its new line of smartphones, Verizon is already offering up deals.
The wireless carrier announced Tuesday that it will give customers a free 16GB iPhone 6 when they trade in their old phone and re-up their contract for two more years. That means a savings of $199, which is the cost of the iPhone 6 with a two-year contract.
Verizon said eligible trade-in devices include the iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5C, and 5S. This offer does not apply to Apple’s new iPhone 6 Plus.
Apple unveiled both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus on Tuesday. TheiPhone 6 is equipped with a 4.7-inch Retina display, while the larger iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5-inch Retina display. In addition to being slimmer and lighter, both models also include animproved camera, graphics, and battery life.
Sprint announced Tuesday that it plans to introduce a new $50 unlimited data plan for Apple’s two new smartphones. T-Mobile also said on Monday that it will match any other carriers’ trade-in deals, along with bestowing customers with a $50 credit.
