Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program temporarily unavailable in England due to COVID-19 lockdown

Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program is temporarily unavailable in England due to new COVID-19 lockdown restrictions that are in effect through December 2. The problem: new and returning members of the iPhone Upgrade Program have to go to an Apple retail store.

However, as noted by AppleInsider, retail stores in Scotland, and Wales, remain open with the same coronavirus precautions as before. Apple Stores in England are now announcing that they will reopen for click-and-collect, “including returns,” from November 6.
