Initiative making gradual international expansion
As anticipated, the iPhone Reuse and Recycling program has been introduced at Canadian Apple Stores. The option lets people trade in an old iPhone for a gift card, usually to put towards the purchase of a new phone. In Canada, Apple is promising "up to $275" for previous devices.
The program has expanded relatively slowly since its debut last year. It began in the US, and apart from Canada has so far only reached France, the UK, and India. The Indian version is in fact modified, meant just for luring iPhone 4 owners into buying an iPhone 4S or 5c.
