As per usual, in October Apple introduced to the public yet another iphone upgrade. The new iphone 12. You may have lost count by now, but we certainly haven’t! And with every new Apple launch comes a question of how and when to buy, especially if you are a hard-core cryptocurrency lover and want an easy and reliable online shopping experience. 

Buying the new iphone 12 with crypto

Buying a new phone online can be a real fuss if you want to pay in crypto. But there are reliable ways to buy verified goods online using crypto. Here are a few ways to get online shopping done and get your hands on legitimate tech using Bitcoin or any other preferred crypto. 

Top-up crypto

First up you want to buy crypto with a credit card (if you haven’t already) and have an adequate sum on your e-wallet to match your chosen tech product. 

Buy a reliable retailers gift card 

One of the most reliable and efficient ways to buy verified goods from official online stores using crypto is to first of all get a hold of their gift card.

In this case, when buying an iphone, you would want to first buy an Amazon or Currys PC World gift card. These retailers are reliable and known to sell legitimate tech goods. 

To get the mentioned Amazon or Currys gift card you will need to buy one or the other gift card through reliable crypto platforms that sell digital gift cards. Usually, these platforms offer a wide range of different gift card options for crypto users. All you need to do is choose your preferred gift card, enter the amount of money you want your gift card to have (usually in dollars, euros or pounds) and pay for the gift card using your e-wallet. 

When the payment is done with, you will instantly receive your digital gift card and will be able to use it. 

Using your gift card

Now you can go to your chosen retailers website and select the desired iphone model, color and capacity. Proceed to checkout, choose the gift card payment method, enter the required code your shopping cart should be all paid for. 

This procedure for buying legitimate tech items applies not only for the iphone, but for any and all tech products you can buy from Amazon or Curry. This way of buying with crypto makes sure the product to receive is original and NOT counterfeit. 

Unfortunately, Apple itself does not provide crypto payment options for users to buy tech off of their official site. So, here is a guide on the new iphone 12 parameters. Happy shopping.
