If you’re a trend-forward tech-lover, the modern world is both the best of times, and the worst of times.
We unequivocally live in the most technologically advanced moment in history, with access to devices that would have blown the mind of people if they’d been around only 30 years ago. And yet, the pace of release means staying up-to-date with the latest gadgets, software, and tech services is a never-ending (and potentially very expensive) pursuit.
For instance, since it first released the iPhone in 2007, Apple hasn’t skipped a year, and now releases multiple models annually. That means that the company managed to put out 42 – yes, 42 – different phones in 16 years. Just this decade, since 2020, they’ve put out 17 phones. In three years.
With new technology releasing so quickly, it's nearly impossible to keep your finger on the pulse, especially if you’re committed to buying every product..
Luckily, there is one way to ensure you're always in the know and ahead of the curve: Product subscriptions. Whether you're a tech enthusiast, a professional, or just someone who enjoys having the latest tech at your fingertips, this blog is your guide to staying fresh with tech subscriptions.
Product Subscriptions: What's the Buzz?
Before we dive into the exciting world of product subscriptions, let's quickly go over what they are and why they've become so popular.
Product subscriptions are a way to access the latest technology – including things like smartphones, consoles, and appliances – on a regular basis, usually for a monthly or annual fee. They offer several advantages:
You get access to the latest versions of tech products without the need to purchase new versions individually.
Subscriptions can often be more cost-effective than buying individual products or services outright.
Many tech subscriptions (like Rentoza) offer the flexibility to cancel or change your subscription as your needs evolve.
This all adds up to the ability to stay exactly as current as you want to. Laptop feeling tired? Get a new one, without having to sell your car or leverage credit.
Maximising Your Product Subscriptions
Want to get the best from your product subscriptions? Here are a few things to keep in mind.
Manage your data
When was the last time you backed up your phone or laptop?
A key part of using product subscriptions effectively is data management, especially if you really plan to stay on top of the latest and greatest in tech. Finding out that you don’t have access to your contacts or photos on your new phone really takes the shine out of what should be an exciting moment.
Most platform ecosystems now have built in support to help you keep track of your data in these cases: Think iCloud or the Google One subscription. These services make switching from one device to the next simpler and less frustrating.
Have a plan
There’s a ton of new tech to keep track of, so it’s useful to plan out how you want to approach your tech subscriptions. Do you want more than one device? What about peripherals like earphones, or extra controllers for a console?
That means keeping an eye on release news, and making sure you’ve got the documentation you’ll need if you want to change your subscription. For instance, Rentoza uses a non-credit verification system for both new subscriptions and upgrades. Having everything on hand when you need it makes for a smoother experience.
This even applies to appliances. Looking at subscribing to a washing machine? You’d hate to find out it doesn’t fit in your house, wouldn’t you? Check the specs, do the measurements. You won’t regret it.
Here’s the thing: Product subscriptions are by far the most cost-effective way to keep on top of tech trends, but they’re not free. It can be easy to get caught in the hype cycle and commit to more than you’re really able to afford. So put some thought into how you’re going to incorporate your subscriptions into your budget, to make sure you don’t get caught out.
