Apple Will Host A New iPhone Upgrade Event This Week

Still waiting for the best chance to purchase a new iPhone ? Well probably it is here ! According to a new report from 9to5mac, Apple is expected to host a new iPhone upgrade event this week at its retail stores.

Apple started to send private emails to owners of older devices notifying them of the problem.

According to the report, the move is part of a larger effort to boost handset sales and the promotion will kick-off on May 8th. The deal will be offered in a number of states across the US, and will ‘blend nicely’ with Apple’s retail store-based iPhone trade-in program it introduced in August of last year…

Here's the report from 9to5mac
Apple is planning to hold an “enormous” iPhone-related event in its stores this week in order to boost sales, according to a source with knowledge of the initiative. Beginning May 8th, the source said, Apple will be contacting upgrade-eligible iPhone users with older iPhone models via email to come into their local Apple Store to update to a new iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c. [...]
Apple will brief Apple Retail management on the initiative tomorrow, according to the source. Additionally, Apple is said to be readying various other new marketing and sales initiatives to improve the sales of the iPhone in its retail stores
It’s unclear at this point what the ‘enormous iPhone-related event’ will entail, such as pricing and other details, but it’ll likely be in line with discounts from other retailers. Target, for instance, has the iPhone 5s starting at $119 with contract, and both Best Buy and RadioShack have the 16GB model for $99.

So what do you think ?
