Apple will be updating its current “Reuse and Recycling” Program shortly to start accepting non-Apple smartphones, which will include Android devices. With the current program customs get a gift cards to be used to purchase iPhones when trading in their current device. Apple Retail Store employees will assess the device’s trade-in value by evaluating its cosmetic and functional condition.
The store employees will also be able to assist customers by transferring the contact address book to the new iPhone from the current phone.
This new idea will no doubt help Apple dominate the smart phone market even further.
Apple’s current trade-in program may be convenient for customers, however, they generally do not offer the best prices so if you are looking to trade in your current device you may want to shop around first.
