It was previously believed that Apple would be launching its recycle and trade-in program after it releases its new iPhones (iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C). Apple’s new iPhones are expected to be officially unveiled on the 10th of September, so we were expecting the program to be launched soon after. A new report, however, is saying that the program will be launched on the 30th of August and will be called the “iPhone Reuse and Recycle Program.”
9to5Mac reports, “The trade-in program will be marketed as the “iPhone Reuse and Recycle Program.” It will begin rolling out in select Apple Stores this upcoming Friday, August 30th. Like we previously reported, a larger-scale rollout will occur during the month of September.
“The program is applicable to both standard customers and business customers that want to purchase a new iPhone.”
It adds, “The iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and iPhone 5 are eligible for both the trade-in and recycling aspects of the program. The program will be supported in the United States first, and it could reach international markets in the future.”
