Things To Know Before Buying iPhone From Apple Store

You need to be aware of a few things before you head to the Apple store to purchase an iPhone. Here are a couple of things you need to bring:

Bring Correct ID

While buying an iPhone you decide to finance your new iPhone, two forms of valid ID are must for you.

  1. First is driver’s license, state ID, or passport, military ID.

Note: As long as the address on your primary ID matches the address on your carrier bill, second form of ID can be nearly anything.

  1. Second on can be a credit card with your name on it.


What if the address on your primary ID doesn’t match the address on your carrier bill? For example, you’ve just moved from one to another place, then the second form of ID should be a utility bill from the last 90 days and that address must go with what the carrier has on file.

You Should Be An Authorized User With Your Carrier

When you want to finance and activate the phone, additionally for being able to match the forms of ID specified above, you will also be in need of being an authorized user on your carrier account. If you’re unsure, inquire the primary person on your account to visit the website of carrier or call and confirm, then add you if you haven’t already been added.

Know Your Carrier Account Information

You must be required to have the last four digits of the primary’s social security number in addition to the account PIN and password. However, not every carrier is going to require a PIN, but if yours does, you should know it. Note: It is not the same as the password on your account.

Carry A Credit Card For The iPhone Upgrade Program

If you are looking to finance your new iPhone all the way through the iPhone Upgrade Program, which is typically available only for the latest iPhone versions, as well as all of the above, you are going to need a credit card. You must have a credit card, not a debit card. The credit card will be used to run a credit check. Note: This process will require you to fill out a form which will contain your social security number and your salary, so you have to be sure you know the correct information.
