In partnership with CIT, Apple has launched a new MacBook Upgrade Program for businesses, especially small businesses, to purchase for or upgrade MacBooks for their employees at affordable monthly plans. Commercial Investment Trust (CIT) is an American financial and bank holding company.
Earlier this month, Apple announced the new ‘Business Essentials’ service coming in Spring 2022. Designed for businesses to manage the devices of their employees, the new service program will offer device management, 24/7 support, and cloud storage for a monthly subscription fee. Business Essentials will enable small businesses to manage the iPhones, iPads, and Macs of their employees more efficiently by making Setup and Onboarding faster and simpler, offering easy backup via dedicated iCloud accounts, providing security for every device and protecting users’ privacy, and more.
New MacBook Upgrade Program allows business owners to purchase MacBooks at easy installment plans
CIT is offering a flexible and affordable service to business owners. Under the new MacBook Upgrade Program, small businesses and corporations can upgrade or purchase MacBooks (Intel-based or Apple Silicon) for their teams by only paying 3% of the original cost of the purchased MacBook model every month. And after 90 days, they can return the MacBook or upgrade it at any time.
- $999 13-inch MacBook Air for $30 per month
- $1,299 13-inch MacBook Pro for $39 per month
- $1,999 14-inch MacBook Pro for $60 per month
- $2,499 16-inch MacBook Pro for $75 per month
The Apple Silicon MacBook models are praised for their fast performance and incredible battery life. Therefore, an upgrade to M1, M1 Pro, and M1 Max Mac notebooks for the workforce will help businesses improve efficiency.
