There are plenty of options for what you can do with an old iPhone.
Some, which is logical, sell them and thus save on buying a new model. However, Apple has its own opinion on this matter. The network has a video that tells you what is really worth to do with an outdated iPhone. This week Apple posted a video dedicated to the trade-in on its YouTube channel. In it, the company talks about the importance of this program for the industry and for the planet, without affecting the opportunity to get a brand new iPhone XR at a discount.
Even if your outdated smartphone can not work correctly, it is worth to hand over to Apple and make a contribution to the environment, as well as get a nice discount when buying a smartphone.
The purpose of the program is not only to exchange the old iPhone for a new one, but also the correct disposal of failed electronics.
Having handed over the device by trade-in, you can be sure that it will either be restored and it will fall into the hands of a new user, or re-processed, and the resulting materials will go to the production of new Apple devices. For example, the steel case of iPhone 5S was used to create a new case for MacBook.
