Mobile phones have come a long way. We cannot begin to choose which one is best for us because mobile phones offer different things. In the sea of mobile phones here in Singapore and around the world, we have to choose something that suits our lifestyle and budget.
If we are currently possessing an Android phone and we want to change into iPhone, we can consider swapping. In swapping, we can pay less but we get more. Apple is actually thinking of a trade-in program that will accept rival smartphones in exchange of iPhone. This is an opportunity for Android users here in Singapore.
To date, Apple’s trade-in program is only limited to iPhone models. If we have older models of iPhone and we want to exchange or upgrade it, we can do so. Apple will recycle the old model and re-purpose it. This program is Apple’s way of boosting their sales and so far, they are succeeding.
Apple’s initiative to include rival smartphones is an excellent strategy to get more iPhone in the hands of many. The program will start in the coming weeks as soon as Apple employees are up to speed. The value of trade-in will be determined depending on the value of the device and the wear and tear it has endured.
If we are tired of our Samsung, Nokia and BlackBerry phones, we can exchange it for an iPhone in the near future. This is not the first attempt of Apple to persuade non-iPhone users to choose their devices. Last September, Apple posted a guide thoroughly explaining how to move content from Android to iPhone.
