Apple is making it easier for non-iPhone users to replace their gadgets. The tech company headed by CEO Tim Cook has started a new trade-in program for non-Apple devices, specifically BlackBerry, Windows and Android phones.


On March 30, Apple has formally announced the availability of the trade-in program in various Apple Retail Stores.

After the trade-in, customers are entitled to receive credit before purchasing a new iPhone 5c, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. The Apple Watch, expected to be released this April, is not yet included in the offer.

Apple’s Reuse and Recycle program was launched in 2013. A year after, the offer was expanded to include the iPad.
