Are you reading this blog post on your phone? Good news! You don’t need a new phone ! Do you ?
Apple release the new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max soon.
Buying a smartphone in 2019 should be like buying a very expensive household item. If your microwave does not turn on, or regularly catches fire, then you should buy a new microwave, but do you change it each time a new one comes out ? I doubt it very much..a little like iPhones they done;t actually change much.
This is all to say that this iPhone looks slightly better than the last few iPhones, and if your old iPhone is not literally unusable (does not turn on, cannot run apps), then you don’t need to buy this one. Beyond true unusability, anything that is busted on your old iPhone can be fixed both cheaply and quickly at any number of independent repair shops – such as Mend My iPhone. Faulty cameras, cracked screens, and batteries that lose charge quickly can be replaced for a tiny fraction of what a new iPhone costs. A phone that is not purposefully destroyed should last, I don’t know, three or four years. Definitely longer than a year.
Your repaired phone will feel like a new phone, and it will still let you do things like browse Facebook, send text messages, and take pictures and amazingly make phone calls You will have saved many hundreds of dollars, put money into the local economy, and supported a small repair business. You will have done a very small thing to help prevent more metals being mined from the Earth and to prevent a still-useful device from ending up in a landfill.
When your phone is broken beyond repair, then it is time to buy a new phone or why not buy a second hand phone likes the ones we sell.
All you have to do is use your phone until it no longer turns on and then go buy a new one.
