Apple’s iPhone trade-in program, which made its debut in the United States back in August, is now available in retail stores across the U.K. starting today. The new scheme lets consumer take in their old iPhones and trade them for Apple store credit that they can then put towards a new device.
The trade-in program has been available online for some time, but this is the first time that Apple has provided the service in-store as well.
“iPhones hold great value. So, Apple Retail Stores in the U.K. are launching a new program to assist customers who wish to bring in their previous-generation iPhone for reuse or recycling,” Apple said in a statement today.
“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.”
If you’re planning to upgrade your old iPhone to an iPhone 5s or an iPhone 5c, then, now would be a good time to do it. Of course, the amount of credit you get for your old device will all depend on which model you have, and what kind of condition it’s in.
