Apple Now Lets You Trade Your Android Phone For Credit Towards An iPhone.

Apple AAPL 2.53% has expanded its trade-in program to offer store credit to consumers who hand in their non-iOS devices, as originally reported by media outlets 9to5Mac and Buzzfeed.Users will be able to trade in their phones from other platforms in Apple stores in the U.S., UK, Canada, France, Germany and Italy via its iPhone Reuse and Recycling Program, and receive a gift card to use at Apple stores. Not everyone is a fan of larger smartphones but it seems there’s even more evidence that Apple is indeed planning a smaller iPhone 6 – dubbed the 6C.

The expanded version of the program is designed to lure consumers away from competing smartphone makers by including devices from Samsung, BlackBerry and HTC. Previously, Apple updated its website to include a step-by-step guide on how to ditch an Android device for an iPhone — and, most recently, CEO Tim Cook said during an earnings call that the company saw more Android users switch to iOS after the launches of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus than after the launches of the past three Apple devices. The latter models are likely to include faster hardware and possibly more features in a similar upgrade to what we’ve seen in the past – for example the move from the iPhone 5 to 5S.

Here’s why: Trading in a device through Apple involves clicking through a brief questionnaire online or handing over your device to a store representative to be evaluated. On the other hand, selling a device on your own requires taking photos, writing an appealing ad, fielding questions from potential buyers and meeting a buyer in person. After indicating online that the device was in working order and free of water damage, I was offered an Apple gift card of $199.82 (converted to dollars from British Pounds). Apple’s quote wasn’t bad, but after looking at the going rate for the same device on Swappa the offer is a lot lower than the $273 the device is currently selling for online. Even the iPhone 6′s Reachability feature, which allows an app or Homescreen to momentarily move to the bottom half of the screen for easier one-handed use, doesn’t quite mimic the ease with which older iPhone models worked with one handed use.

The iPhone 6C could mean Apple has learned its lesson from poor iiPhone 5C sales, which were largely due to the fact that it wasn’t as cheap as expected.
