Apple Allowing Trade-Ins for Water Damaged iPhones
The company from Cupertino has recently changed its Reuse and Recycling Program policies. From now on, customers can trade in their water damaged iPhones and a number of other devices.
For its Reuse and Recycling Program, Apple has partnered with PowerON to buy used iPhones, iPads and Macs, as well as other non-Apple products. Until the recent policy revision, however, devices with liquid damage were not accepted.
As noted on Monday, Apple's has lifted that particular restriction, though signs of liquid contact can substantially detract from a device's value.
The reason for lowering the price of the damaged gadget is quite obvious - recyclers take risk buying back such items. That is why for iPhone 5 with 64GB of memory on board you will get only about $230. For you to compare - the same smartphone in working condition costs $350.
