Apple introduces new MacBook upgrade program for business partners

Apple launched a business-only program that allows members to purchase and upgrade computers for a relatively low monthly price.

A tweet from Max Weinbach showed an image of Apple's "New MacBook Laptop Upgrade Program" promotional material that appeared in front of customers and had access to the company's portal.

The deal appears to be in partnership with CIT Group, a bank for business customers where the program page shares monthly prices for different MacBook models — starting with the 13-inch MacBook Air for $30, the 13-inch MacBook Pro for $39, and the 14-inch MacBook Pro An inch for $60 and a 16-inch MacBook Pro for $75.

The process begins with the company funding application listed on the website, all you have to do is sign the document once it is approved, then CIT Group will issue an order to Apple on behalf of the company.

The title of the order page is the Apple M1 Update, which demonstrates the company's intent to switch from an Intel-based Mac to a more powerful and energy-efficient successor product.

Depending on the exact size or ownership path of these devices, the information available does not indicate whether each organization has minimum order quantities.

Organizations with Apple Business and Education accounts often use dedicated Apple Store locations to order hardware and accessories.

Apple provides financing to these partners. But it is usually purchased whole (except for some small discounts).

The new Apple offer does not apply to individuals

The new Mac Upgrade Program now gives these organizations the option to rent a MacBook. Although he did not specify if there are any other accessories or computers.

For example, let's say a small business with five employees needs five MacBook Airs. You can get it for $150 a month. However, it must be kept for at least 90 days before it can be updated.

However, this means that you don't have to pay as much as $4,995 for five mobile devices. Small businesses can keep it for 33 months before it hits full cost.

This is in line with the Small Business Essentials support package that Apple announced in November. It enables small startups to operate and invest in Apple devices without spending a lot of money.
