Apple will let you trade in your old iPhone for an iPhone X or iPhone 8 by mail


Available since 2015, Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program allows customers in select markets to get a brand new iPhone each year, as long as they commit to monthly payments and trade in their old Apple handset.

 

Until now, you were able to trade in your out-of-fashion iPhone for a new model only by visiting an Apple Store. But that's no longer the case, as Apple recently refreshed the Upgrade Program to include a second (seemingly more convenient) trade in option, at least in the US. Apparently, you can now request a "trade-in-kit" that can be used to send your old iPhone to Apple by mail. 

 

For now, it's not exactly clear what this trade-in-kit consists of, and neither how the whole process will work. In any case, Apple likely enhanced the Upgrade Program in order to allow customers to effortlessly trade in their old iPhones for the new models that will be announced tomorrow: iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus (these names haven't been officially confirmed, but they're almost certainly accurate). 

 

Let's wait and see if Apple shares any additional details about this improved Upgrade Program tomorrow, during its new iPhone announcement event.

Looking at the prices they currently offer for trade ins for the 7, you can get a bit more selling locally or on eBay. Of course, Apple offers the more convenient way to avoid dealing with low ballers, no shows, ect. Pretty cool to at least offer the program.

That's just for now, look at last year, Carriers were offering $650 for any i6, i6+, i6s, and i6s+. And $550 for any 5 or 5s. Definitely can't resell phones at that price

Who knows. Probably something stupid/racist/sexist/combination of the above, or the mods just got tired of his semi-retarded ass. Either way, about f-ing time!

An article had the comments section shut down, and he and diggie both got banned. It must've gotten bad.

The result is more important than the reason. Banned for at least this week is an excellent idea!!!!

Do you imagine what will be the size of his comment after the iPhone X announcement?????
