According to the latest rumors, the company from Cupertino has recently expanded its in-store iPad trade-in program to the UK, Germany, France and Spain.

It should be noted, however, that you can't trade-in your iPad Air or iPad mini with Retina display.
According to the latest rumors, Samsung and Sharp won't produce displays for the upcoming iPhone 6. Apple has reportedly rejected both manufacturers.
