Apple has never actually been particularly versatile when it came to broken device parts so here’s what to do with your iPhone when it breaks. I’m sure that unless it happened to you, it most certainly happened to a friend: that horrifying moment when you see your iPhone plummeting towards the hard concrete or worse, a body of water.
Unless you’re willing to pay $99 a year for AppleCare+ and you found yourself in the aforementioned scenario, you probably had no other choice but to walk into the nearest service center and hope to get it fixed that way. Things would’ve been even worse when the damage was not repairable and you would literally have no other choice than to rip out few hundred bucks from your wallet in order to get a new phone altogether.
However, good news for iPhone users out there who don’t completely trust themselves to keep their phones safe! Considering that Apple is planning and already in process of revamping its trade-in program, the company is starting to offer up to $250 for damaged iPhones. Of course the amount you receive will be calculated according to the amount of damage the phone has been subjected to.
This is the first move that the company makes in the attempt to expand its trade-in scheme. It is not yet confirmed, but several sources suggest that the new trade-in will include new iPhones on offer, even if your own device has got a damaged screen, camera or home button.
Apparently, the trade-in terms and conditions state that Apple will offer credit for your broken phone as long as it can still function and power on. The entire list of terms can be found in any Apple store or on the Apple website. The program has already been launched in Apple stores across the state and the amount of credit you can get for a broken iPhone 5S is $50, $200 for an iPhone 6 and $250 for an iPhone 6 Plus.
The program may seem like it’s mostly about customer experience with the company but actually tries to achieve more than just that. Apple has stated that the program was designed with the intent of expanding the pool of potential buyers for newer iPhone models. Along with the iPhone Upgrade Program, Apple is trying to draw as much attention as it can to the latest models of the phone.
