After unveiling the highly anticipated iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus on Wednesday at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, Apple announced that it would be launching its own retail program for iPhone users that want to stay up to date with the latest devices year after year.

Dubbed the iPhone Upgrade Program, the new program from Apple Retail in the U.S. will let customers purchase unlocked iPhones with AppleCare+ and choose a carrier while paying $32/month on a 24-month installment plan. Although the installment plan lasts 24 months, you’ll still be able to get next year’s phone the day it drops.

If you can’t stand missing out on a new iPhone from Apple every year, this might be your best bet, but you’re going to have to pay the price. That said, features like 3D Touch and 4K video are important advancements for many users. It will be interesting to see how many people decide to switch to Apple’s plan.
