Get the most recent on iPhone/iPad technology: Ipads Advisor

After officially introducing the U.S. version of the program in late August, Apple has officially confirmed that it’s launching its iPhone trade-in program today at its UK retailer, reports Pocket-lint.

‘iPhones hold fantastic value. So, Apple Retail Stores in the UK are launching a new program to help clients who wish to bring in their previous-generation iPhone for reuse or recycling,’ an Apple spokesperson has stated. ‘In addition to assisting support the environment, clients will have the ability to get a credit for their returned phone that they can utilize towards the acquisition of a brand-new iPhone.’

Under the program, individuals can receive a present card in exchange for their older devices, although the gift card need to instantly be utilized towards the acquisition of a new iPhone.

Customers may also get quotes from Apple for a similar trade-in program online that introduced nearly 2 years ago, with the choice of shipping a device for recycling offered too. In the United States, the online and in-store programs are run by various third-party companies, and the exact same may hold true in the UK, meaning that customers could want to inspect both programs to figure out any distinctions in trade-in value. Separate trade-in services may also provide higher value, although Apple’s in-store program offers the convenience of an immediate no-hassle credit against the purchase of a brand-new device.
