AT&T makes it easy for early iPhone hardware upgrades

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:39PM EST

With WWDC kicking off in under 3 hours, we know what’s going through the minds of a lot of AT&T iPhone users: “Will I be able to get a subsidy on the new iPhone?” Well from what we’ve been seeing, the odds are stacked in your favor. AT&T is being suspiciously generous and bumping up the upgrade eligibility of many iPhone users for the better, some by as many as five months. Based upon appearances alone, it seems that all anyone has to do to take advantage of the offer is cough up $18 for an early upgrade fee and then pay the normal 2-year rate. Want to know if you’re eligible? Either dial *639# on your AT&T handset or log onto your online account management and click “Check Upgrade Options”. Good luck!
