iPhone Buying Limit Raised to Five
The maximum amount of iPhone devices that can be purchased at any given time has been raised by Apple to five, from two. Apple confirmed the change to the Epicenter blog on Wired.com.
No reason was given for the shift, though the Wired blog suggested that the lack of any sort of holiday iPhone shortage made Apple feel that they needn’t worry about a black market for the products.
Apple had instituted the two-per-customer rule in October. The rule only applied to Apple stores- and not to Web sales or AT&T stores- and banned purchases of iPhones with cash.
