Sprint offers BOGO on the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, knocks $200 off iPads

The summer heat is almost here and Sprint is kicking things off with a hot deal on the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.

Starting Friday, current Sprint customers who buy an iPhone 6S or 6S Plus can get one free. Current customers do need one line that’s eligible for an upgrade and will also need to add one new line of service. New customers will obviously need to add two lines of service.

This deal works whether you purchase or lease the phones. You can even purchase one of them and lease the other if you wish. For even more flexibility, both phones can be either the iPhone 6S or the 6S Plus, or you can select one of each.

You can purchase the iPhone 6S 16GB for $0 down and 24 monthly installments of $27.09. The second iPhone 6S will be free after Sprint gives you a $27.09 monthly credit. Or you can purchase the iPhone 6S Plus 16GB for $0 down and 24 monthly installments of $31.25. Again, Sprint will give you a credit of $31.25 per month to make the second phone free. If you choose two different models, the one with the lower monthly cost will get the monthly credit.

If you opt for a lease instead, it’ll cost $26.39 a month for 18 months for the iPhone 6S 16GB and $31 per month for 18 months for the 6S Plus 16GB. The advantage to leasing is that the cost is much lower since it’s only for 18 months and you can upgrade anytime after 12 months. However, once you make all 18 payments, you have to turn in your phone since you don’t own it — or you can opt to purchase it.

Sprint does offer you the ability to return your phones after 30 days if you’re not happy. Plus, if you’re a new customer, you can save up to 50 percent off your current bill. That deal was supposed to end in February, but it keeps chugging along.

In addition to the BOGO for the iPhone, Sprint will also knock off $200 on the latest iPads when you purchase or lease the iPhone 6S or 6S Plus. You can choose from the iPad Mini 4, iPad Air 2, iPad Pro 9.7, or iPad Pro 12.9 in any memory configuration. The credit is spread out over 24 months, so the cost of the iPad Air 2 16GB or iPad Mini 4 16GB would be only $13.75 per month instead of $22.09 per month. The iPad Pro 9.7 32GB would be only $22.08 per month instead of $30.42, and the iPad Pro 12.9 would be only $28.33 per month as opposed to $36.67.

Sprint didn’t specify when either of these deals will end, but it did say that they are limited time offers.

The Galaxy S24 could crush the iPhone 15 in a really big way
The back of the Galaxy S23 Ultra and iPhone 14 Pro.

You may think it's a bit early to start dreaming of the Galaxy S24, but the rumor mill would happily disagree with you. New details about the S24 recently surfaced online, and if they're true, the phone could have a surprisingly big advantage over the iPhone 15.

Per a report from the Chinese social network Weibo, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset is expected to have a 50% faster GPU compared to the one on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 — the chip inside the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, and Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Why this is big news for the Galaxy S24

Own an iPhone, iPad, or MacBook? Install this critical update right now
IOS 16.4.1 UPDATE.

Apple has released software updates for iPhones and iPads that are light on features, but they are critically important from a security perspective. The updates — iOS 16.4.1 and iPadOS 16.4.1 — started rolling out on Friday, but you should install them on your iPhone and iPad as soon as possible to protect your devices from attacks.

In its official release note, Apple says the updates patch two security flaws that “may have been actively exploited.” Now, Apple doesn’t disclose security issues before conducting thorough research, both in-house and in collaboration with cybersecurity experts. In a nutshell, when Apple publicly announces a security flaw, and it comes with a “Critical Vulnerability” badge, you should grab the fix as soon as Apple makes them available.

Your old iPhone may not get iOS 17 this year, and that’s good
Apple iPhone X Review

With Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference coming on June 5, we’re expecting a lot of cool things to be announced during the keynote. This could finally be the time that Apple unveils its mixed reality headset, and — of course — we’ll be getting our usual slate of software updates for existing products. That includes iOS 17, which will no doubt ship with the iPhone 15 later this year.

But one rumor going around recently is that iOS 17 could be dropping support for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. iPadOS 17 may also be leaving the first generation 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros, as well as the fifth-generation iPad, in the dust. Though many people who are using these devices seem to be outraged at the possibility of not getting iOS 17 on their older iPhones, I think it’s the right decision. Here’s why.
You already got over 5 years of software upgrades
