Are you looking to grab a shiny new iPhone 6S tomorrow? Well T-Mobile just might have the best deal around if you have an iPhone or another Android phone to trade in.

Right now you can get the iPhone 6S 16GB for only $5 per month if you trade-in an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and sign up with the Jump On Demand program. If the iPhone 6S Plus 16GB is more your thing, it’s only $9 per month. Switching from Android? No problem, T-Mobile will give you the same deal if you trade-in a Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, or a Galaxy Note 5.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere launched this deal to celebrate the surge in iPhone pre-orders over last year. Legere thinks this surge is not necessarily because more people are wanting to buy a new iPhone, but instead, more people are choosing T-Mobile because it doesn’t offer all the BS that other carriers do.

Jump On Demand allows you to spread out most of the full retail cost of your new phone over 18 monthly installments with a balloon payment at the end if you wish to keep your phone. The kicker is that you’re allowed to upgrade your device up to 3 times per year by simply trading in your existing phone.

If you don’t have another phone to trade, you can still grab the iPhone 6S 16GB for $20 per month or the iPhone 6S Plus for only $24 per month. The total cost for the iPhone 6S 16GB would be $360 for the 18 months plus a $164 balloon payment at the end if you want to keep the phone. That’s only $524, well below the cost that other carriers are selling the phone for.

While the 16GB versions of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are by far the best deals, T-Mobile is also offering reduced pricing on the other models. You can even trade in an older phone, too. Here’s the full pricing breakdown.

I think I found the perfect iPhone screen protector

Every smartphone brand touts having some kind of protection for its phone displays, trying to convince you that you don’t need a screen protector. Samsung and Google use various versions of Corning Gorilla Glass, while Apple has its own Ceramic Shield glass. Durability-wise, these glass panels should be mostly resistant to scratches and scuffs and less likely to shatter if dropped.

But I’m here to tell you that if you’re anything like clumsy old me, then a simple screen protector can save you from a lot of unnecessary headaches.

The iPhone 15 Pro Max is my favorite smartphone. Here’s why.

When I bought the iPhone 15 Pro Max in 2023, it was my return to Apple’s largest iPhone after several years of only living with the smaller Pro model. I made the decision based on its feature upgrades and a wish to try life with a big-screen iPhone again.

Now, eight months after doing so, have I regretted it? No, quite the opposite.

The iPhone 16 might be a bigger upgrade than we thought

The iPhone 16 is due for some big upgrades if the latest rumors are to be believed. According to CTEE (per AppleInsider), Apple is planning on putting the latest and greatest A18 chip in both the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro models, which would close the performance gap that’s typically existed between devices in the lineup. This is a significant and fairly positive change for people who usually buy the base or Plus model due to cost reasons.

Sources also claim that Apple has upped its chip order from TSMC, its main supplier. The company is anticipating selling between 90 million and 100 million units of the iPhone 16, a step up from the 80 million to 90 million iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro units it sold last year. If true, this would be a significant departure from what Apple has done in previous generations.
