Apple Wants Your Damaged iPhones to trade in for a new iPhone 6s.

Mobile phones

Report suggests Apple is planning on expanding its Reuse and Recycle trade-in program to include damaged handsets. Following the fall in profits by Apple it is now rumoured that they want a piece of that aftercare action, the move is intended to encourage iPhone users to buy a new handset from Apple, rather than spending on third party repairs.

Apple has always wanted to control its market place, now we can see the after care market to be squeezed, will this lead to the control of supply of genuine parts. If you iPhone has a broken display, dodgy cameras and non responsive buttons, these ailments will probably not qualify under the reasonable clause, which sounds like a get-out clause, if ever we thought of one.

Lets hope the credit offered discount of an upgrade is worth while.
