• Apple Officially Begins Accepting Android/Other Smartphones for Trade-ins Toward iPhones



    For a long time, Apple has accepted trade-ins of old Macs, PCs, iPhones, and iPads for a credit value towards a brand-new iPhone, iPad, iPod, or Mac in Apple's Retail stores. Among trading in an older device, the customer could be given an Apple Store gift card of varying values that could be redeemed in Apple's retail stores.

    As rumored earlier in the month, Apple has officially opened up its trade-in program to accept third-party smartphones for a trade-in value too. This includes Android, Nokia, Windows Phone, and many other acceptable trade-in devices that could offer some value towards a brand-new iPhone in Apple's retail stores.

    Potential customers can bring their devices into Apple retail stores physically, or they can get an online estimate and mail it in to Apple and receive a gift card in the mail. All details necessary to take part in the Apple trade-in program are on Apple's Web site at this link.

    Currently, residents of the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, and Italy can take advantage of this new mobile device trade-in program as of Monday.

      Hmm. I went in before Christmas to trade in a white iPhone 4s but was turned down because where the charger plugs in was black...well from plugging in the official iPhone charger for a year and a half.
      Went home and checked my wife's and sure enough hers was the same.

      Disappointed and had to pay full price for the upgrade.
