To coincide with the news 9to5Mac has leaked a slide from the employee training material that provides an overview of the ‘iPhone Reuse and Recycling Program’.The iPhone Reuse and Recycling Program offers customers an affordable way to upgrade to a new iPhone by getting a store credit based on the value of their current, working iPhone. The offer applies to both consumer and business customers who choose to activate a new iPhone. It also allows customers with non-working iPhones to recycle their phones in an environmentally responsible way.
Trade-in values for a 16GB iPhone 5 are expected to be around $250. As CNBC notes, customers must purchase a new device on contract to qualify for the program.
