Today might be Black Friday (which means you can get 50% off a year’s worth of Stuff magazine, for example), but for Apple fans the bigger tech news is that the iPhone X is officially on sale in South Africa. The iStore has announced network contract pricing and iStore card finance pricing for the new jewel in Apple’s handset crown, and there are more contract options and buy-this-get-this-free packages than you can shake a Lightning cable at.
In its customary style, the iStore is guaranteeing that customers who take out a new contract, or upgrade their existing one, will get the same or better pricing as they’d get from the operators themselves. And they’ve thrown in a little besides.
Choose to go the iStore route and you can also get iCare Plus for R499. iCare what now, you ask? Basically it’s the iStore’s extended warranty for your shiny new phone which includes screen repair coverage and other assistance if your device experiences an unexpected mishap. Normally that would set you back R1,999.
Moreover, if you (or someone dear to you) could use a bit of assistance getting to grips with the numerous features of the iPhone X, buying through the iStore means they get access to iStore Services, which includes things like free training, free setup and free technical support.
For the rest of the deals on offer head over here. And if you’re still undecided, read about our favourite (and least favourite) things about the iPhone X before committing.
