Apple is expanding its “Reuse and Recycle” program it began in 2013. Starting now, in many locations, you can trade in non-Apple smartphones and receive credit toward the purchase of an iPhone.
Individual Apple retail stores have changed the language about the program to read “get credit when you recycle your eligible iPhone, iPad, or select smartphone from another manufacturer.”
According to 9to5 Mac, the new trade-in program is now available in the US, UK, France, and Italy.
So, which non-Apple smartphones will the company let you trade in? Most Android devices and some Windows Phone and Blackberry devices as well. This includes phones from Sony, Samsung, Nokia, LG, and HTC (that’s not an exhaustive list). Apple has also opened up computer trade-ins to include PCs.
If Apple determines your old device has monetary value, you’ll receive a gift card. If not, the company will still recycle it for you for free.
