Understanding the linkage between iPhone repair and upgrade cycle

 

So, you have just now broken your new iPhone handset and are wondering what to do next? Well, you must be thinking that instead of spending bucks to get it fixed, why not buy the new version? Or you must be pondering, instead of waiting for iPhone 8, why not spend some money and get the current one fixed?

You love your iPhone handset and you flaunt it in front of everyone. But the very thought of its shattering makes you gloomy. You have the option of referring to iPhone repair programme or buy a brand new one. Let us check some of the past trends with this regard.

With respect to designing of iPhone handsets, Apple has formed a two-year cycle period. So, every two years, it redesigns the complete handset. In between the two-year span, a new model named as the S model is released.

This time period is very crucial in understanding the trend of the users buying the new iPhone handset or getting their current iPhone fixed.

There are many customers and users approaching for iPhone repair programs. For instance, when iPhone 7 was launched, there was a considerable decrease in the repairing requests of iPhone 6. However, there was a sudden rise in the repairing requests of iPhone 6s. Here, goes the trend. Consumers and users wish to get their iPhone repaired and do not wait and buy the new, recent version. Moreover, they do not go for repairing the version what is two years old.

Users prefer to be a year away from the current trend. But they cannot afford to be a decade away from the latest fashion.

Let us take an example of two users, A and B. A is having iPhone 6 and it has been cracked or damaged terribly. It needed instant repairs. B is having iPhone 6s and it has also been cracked and damaged that need repairing. In this case, A will not get his iPhone 6 repaired. Instead, it will wait and jump to buy the new iPhone 7 version. This will be more reasonable for him. He will think that instead of bearing costs for the old version, why not buy the latest version. In a case of B, he will think why to spend money for the new version when I have the near-to-iPhone 7 version. iPhone 6 handset can be repaired easily.

Now, as Apple is planning to launch its new version soon, there would be a sudden decrease in the iPhone repair requests for 6s and the iPhone repair requests for 7 will become high.

iPhone customers want to walk with the world by carrying the iPhone handsets. They do not bother about the ever increasing costs of these handsets. However, when it comes to iPhone repair, they apply critical thinking. Thus, one can observe the repair request pattern.

Thus, the above explanation gives us a fair idea about the linkage between iPhone repairs and Appleā€™s upgrade cycle. One can notice the pattern of iPhone users in buying and repairing their handsets.
