At midnight, all locations came alive as the stores unveiled a new look in celebration of the new iPhone 15 lineup. Customers rushed in to get their hands on the highly anticipated upgrade.
The new iPhones feature a new design with a durable, color-infused back glass and a new contoured edge, and with its aerospace-grade titanium design that’s strong yet lightweight. The iPhone 15 Pro is by far the lightest Pro model ever with next-generation performance powered by the A17 Pro chip. When it comes to camera developments, the full lineup brings mobile photography to a whole new level with better low-light performance, and a new 5x Telephoto camera — available exclusively on iPhone 15 Pro Max – to capture more than ever before.
Beyond the Box, open_source, and Digital Walker offer a variety of flexible payment options for customers who want to upgrade to the new iPhone 15, including up to 36 months installment at 0% interest available via BPI, Citibank, Metrobank, and UnionBank, and 3, 6, 12, and 24 easy payments via select banks. There are also other exclusive offers available for BDO, BPI, Metrobank, PNB, Security Bank, and RCBC card holders. Customers can also trade in their old devices to get additional discounts for the new iPhone 15 in the BoxTade program in partnership with Compasia.
