Critics explained that the tech maker is currently experimenting with whether its Apple TV+ can be used to attract more consumers by offering two exclusive MLB game streams.

They think Apple expanding its sports offering will be a great marketing strategy for the new iPhone rental service.

If the free MLB games offer is truly part of the manufacturer’s efforts for its smartphone hardware subscription program, chances are Apple TV+ will come bundled with the iPhone.

On the other hand, Deutsche Bank analysts have further explained that bundling gadgets with subscription services is a great method to attract more consumers.

Is the iPhone rental service really necessary?

ZDNet reported that the iPhone rental service works exactly as its name suggests. This means that once Apple rolls out the hardware subscription program, users will have to pay a monthly fee to use their favorite iPhone models.

But, after a while, they have to return it if they can’t pay the subscription fee. Now, some consumers might not like this idea because they won’t be able to fully own an iPhone anymore.

However, some experts claim that the iPhone rental service offers various benefits. One of them is Apple’s e-waste reduction.

Meanwhile, Apple’s repair program no longer accepts missing or stolen iPhones.

On the other hand, some leaked support documents revealed that Apple Watch with watchOS 8.5 can also be restored with iPhone iOS 15.4.
