Rumored iPhone Trade-In Program at Apple Becomes Reality... Today
We were told it's coming, and now it has arrived.
On Friday, Apple officially launched a widely-rumored iPhone trade-in program across the United States, just as Best Buy introduces a weekend-long promotion offering the iPhone 5 for 50% off with a functional iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S trade-in.
CNBC's John Fortt confirmed the news this morning, adding that the program is not temporary and will be available at Apple stores everywhere in the United States effective immediately. As of this writing, Apple is yet to formally announce the program on its website.
All we can tell you with certainty at this point is that customers who bring in a working older-gen iPhone will be eligible to receive credit toward the purchase of a newer model.
We will keep you posted as more details emerge.

I'll keep my 4S even when I get the 5S on release day only because I like having other devices I can mess around with, like keeping my iPod jail broken on 6.1.2 instead of updating to iOS 7 like I did with my 4S and so on.

Kinda a curious, why are they trying to get these old gen iDevices? Recycling?

hmm, I wonder what I could get for my old 4S. Whatever it is, I'm guessing it's not as good of a deal as just selling it myself with it jailbroken.

If my options are older jailbroken device vs newer unjailbroken, I'll go older and jailbroken any time.

It's one iPhone for one new iPhone. Doesn't include unlocked/full priced device. You can't bring 4 working devices and apply that to multiple new phones. One for one y'all.

Will I be able to get a galaxy s4. The iPhone 5s won't be worth the trade in. No real worthwhile improvement and same old squinty screen!!
