“There’s nothing better than always having the latest iPhone. We wanted to mark this by offering our customers this ground-breaking tariff – which has never been seen in the UK before.” Nina Bibby
iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus bring a powerful new dimension to iPhone’s revolutionary Multi-Touch interface with 3D Touch, which senses force to enable intuitive new ways to access features and interact with content. The new iPhones introduce a transformative new approach to photography called Live Photos, bringing still images to life by capturing a moment in motion. Live Photos, 3D Touch, 12-megapixel iSight camera, 5-megapixel FaceTime HD camera with Retina Flash and more are powered by the Apple-designed A9 chip, the most advanced chip ever in a smartphone, delivering faster performance and great battery life. iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are designed with Retina HD displays made from the strongest glass on any smartphone and 7000 series aluminium, the same alloy used in the aerospace industry, in gorgeous metallic finishes that now include rose gold.
Always have the latest iPhone
In a UK first, O2 customers buying iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will be eligible to get a new phone exactly one year later, without having to pay off their old agreement or wait until the end of their contract.
O2’s new 30GB data tariff is perfect for those who don’t want to sign up to a traditional 24 month contract or keep their existing phone for two years, giving customers the ability to upgrade to a new phone after twelve months.
The way it works is simple:
Customers buying iPhone 6s and 6s Plus on an O2 Refresh Tariff pay for their Airtime Plan and Phone Plan separately, meaning that in a year’s time they will have already paid off a percentage of the Phone Plan leaving 12 months payments outstanding. For those on O2’s new 30GB O2 Refresh tariff, O2 will waive the outstanding payments on the Phone Plan allowing customers to upgrade at no extra cost. All customers have to do is trade in their old phone, pick their new O2 Refresh tariff and walk out with their new phone.
For customers who are looking for extra peace of mind with their new iPhone, O2 is offering free damage & breakdown cover which replaces the manufacturer’s warranty when it expires and ensures customers are fully covered for two years.
Nina Bibby, Marketing and Consumer Director at O2 said:
“Customer insight is at the heart of everything we do and we know that there’s nothing better than always having the latest iPhone. We wanted to mark this by offering our customers this ground-breaking tariff – which has never been seen in the industry before.
By introducing this new tariff we can ensure that our customers will be ahead of the curve as, this time next year, they will be ready to get their new phone. Keeping their devices in prime condition also isn’t a problem as our free damage and breakdown policy will keep any damaged devices at bay. Connected, protected and always having the latest iPhone; we’re sure this will be a compelling offer to iPhone fans across the UK.”
