Visit Apple’s online store in the U.S. and you’ll see an iPhone carrier financing option through AT&T Next. The new purchasing choice was spotted by 9to5 Mac on Wednesday and follows reports earlier this month that Apple would be adding new carrier purchase plans around August 20.
When I checked Apple’s site, I saw the option, along with a link to explain how the [company]AT&T[/company] Next program works: For $0 down, you can pay a set amount each month for your iPhone and be eligible to trade it in for an upgrade in either 12 or 18 months, depending on your monthly payment amount. The strange thing is that [company]Verizon[/company] and [company]T-Mobile[/company] offer similar plans — T-Mobile was actually the first to do so — but neither is shown on Apple’s store site. Both were tipped earlier this month to be coming to [company]Apple[/company] Stores, however.
