Initiative continues slow international expansion
Apple's iPhone Reuse and Recycling Program is now in effect in German Apple Stores. As elsewhere, the plan lets people get credit towards a new iPhone by trading in eligible older models. In Germany, Apple is offering up to €230 in credit, depending on the model and its condition.
iPhone trade-ins have been expanding relatively slowly so far. They began in the US last year, and have since spread to Canada, the UK, France, and -- in limited form -- India. Regions like Australia, Japan, and other major European countries are still uncovered.
