Get A New Iphone Through Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Trade-in Program

Posted by Lynn Eisler November 19, 2013 0 Comment 1287 views


Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhone Reuse and Recycling program offers customers to quickly and responsibly trade in their old iPhone for in-store credit or an Apple Store Gift Card when they are planning to buy a new iPhone. However in earlier program there were restrictions on the amount a customer could get for their old iPhone, in case the phone had water damage. The water damage could be assessed by the iPhone’s liquid contact indicator.

Apple Eases the Water Damage Norm

But now Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has decided to ease this norm under its iPhone Reuse and Recycling program and hence the customers can trade-in their used iPhones even with liquid contact indicators that have been activated; provided the phone is still in working condition.

Though Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) noted that water damage sensors are designed not to be triggered by humidity and temperature changes, many users have faced issues related to activation of their sensors for silly reasons. In many such instances there could not be any significant damage to the phone like corrosion in any of the ports or liquid under the phone’s display.

The ease in water damage norms is certainly good news for many iPhone users whose liquid contact indicator might have activated just because of misty bathroom, sweaty palm or some condensation in mobile holder.

Another ‘Smiley’ for iPhone Users

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN)’s Lovefilm service competes with Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX)’s online streaming service for big name titles with easy to use interface. Now Amazon has resolved out the two years long fix with an update of Lovefilm app’s compatible version for iPhone and iPod touch. Earlier this iOS app was exclusively accessible to iPad users. Lovefilm yet doesn’t have an app for Android based phones.

Amazon / LOVEFiLM Instant Stream thousands of movies, TV shows and trailers instantly and also allows adding them to the user’s LOVEFiLM Watchlist to watch later.
