In-store iPad trade-in program launched by Apple on Earth Day

The full-court Earth Day press may have brought in a lot of potential for impressing the customers and now that Apple is going to expand its Reuse & Recycling program to help recycle more devices, people are likely to get more out of it. From this morning, the iPad has been made eligible for the in-store Reuse & Recycling program at Apple Retail Store locations and this gives customers an opportunity to receive credit for their aging Apple devices.

Till now, these trade in credits would only be received by the users of iPhone but with the expansion of this environment friendly program, Apple is going to let iPhone or iPad trade-in credit to be used on cross products. This is an amazing offer since this allows you to go for a trade in of your eligible iPhone and use the credit to purchase a new iPad. Earlier on, the iPhone trade in credit could only be used for the purchase of an iPhone.

However attractive this might appear to Apple users, they must understand that it hasnt been an easy task for the company and it is not so simple to just allow a trade in. The specialists at the company have devised a list of 22 criteria upon which the decision will be based which will tell whether a device is suitable for a trade in or rather 'eligible'. A device would be considered ineligible it has the following defaults; non-Apple parts, jailbroken devices that cannot be restored, Find My iPhone cannot be disabled, and several others.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
