Apple has started a trade-in and recycling programme in the USA for older iPhones which the company then plans to resell in other countries.
The company will pay customers up to $280 for their old handsets, although the customer has to also have an existing — or take out a new — iPhone contract with a mobile network.
“In addition to helping support the environment, customers will be able to receive a credit for their returned phone that they can use toward the purchase of a new iPhone,” a company spokesperson said.
The handsets being returned have to be in working order, and shown to be so in the Apple stores.
The recycling programme is being run by Brightstar for Apple. – NCW – Naijagist
