Late last month 9to5Mac reported that Apple would soon be launching its iPhone trade-in program in Australia. Today the Apple Store app started notifying Australian users that the offer is now available in that country. Customers who trade-in a previous-model iPhone at an official Apple Retail Store can receive up to A$250 in credit toward a new device.

Apple first debuted the “Reuse and Recycle” program in the United States last year, and has slowly been rolling it out across the world since. Earlier this year the offer was expanded to allow for iPad trade-ins as well, though that extension has yet to reach most markets.

    With the new iPhone 6 coming out I better sell my old iPhone before the value of it drops. I usually search 1-13 different sites to find the best offer, but I just found this company that compares all the buyback companies in one spot, it’s called RecomHub.

    It’s like Kayak but for electronic devices that show you all the offers in one spot.

  3. BE CAREFUL this promotion is a load of RUBBISH. I was offered $35 for my iphone 4 which was in working order. Don’t rush into they shop – you will only be disappointed. The promotion says “UP TO $250″ and as the customer service guy in store said for $250 you would need to bring in a pretty much brand new iphone 5 so what’s the point in that.
    Its a good idea and we were really excited about being able to get an ipad mini in exchange for iphone plus cash but $35 cash is ridiculous !
    Interested to know how others have gone…
