Is there a right time to up­grade?

The Denver Post - - TECH KNOW -

GroovyTek train­ers are asked mul­ti­ple times a day, “Should I up­grade to a new de­vice, is it worth it, is it time or should I wait?” While there is not a sim­ple across the board an­swer, up­grad­ing to a new de­vice does makes sense in the be­low sce­nar­ios:

• Your de­vice stops work­ing, or be­comes too slow, or no longer syncs with other de­vices.

• Your de­vice is no longer go­ing to be sup­ported on a net­work. This is the case now with flip phones.

• Your de­vice is work­ing fine but you have bought other items that do not synch or in­ter­act with the de­vice be­cause it is of a dif­fer­ent gen­er­a­tion and can’t com­mu­ni­cate with your new equip­ment.

• Your carrier has in­formed you that you are el­i­gi­ble for an up­grade to a newer de­vice and there are some neat things the new de­vice of­fers that you would like to ex­plore. When choos­ing a new de­vice, be aware of your op­tions and have a han­dle on what is most im­por­tant for you to use the de­vice to ac­com­plish. Know­ing what you don’t need is just as im­por­tant as know­ing what you do need.

There are also many sce­nar­ios when it just doesn’t make sense to up­grade at all.

For ex­am­ple, if you just pur­chased a new pair of head­phones, you prob­a­bly wouldn’t be too happy to dis­cover that your new iPhone 7 doesn’t have an au­dio jack to plug into. Or, you prob­a­bly wouldn’t be too pleased about that new Galaxy Note 7 you up­graded to when you are pub­licly shamed on an air­plane when you are told those phones are banned as they have a ten­dency to ex­plode. Up­grad­ing to a new de­vice can be both fun and in­tim­i­dat­ing. GroovyTek train­ers are avail­able to help you de­cide if it’s a good time to up­grade and can help you with the tran­si­tion.
