Trending: Testing Microsoft’s Project xCloud: New streaming service feels like a magic trick

iPhone5-34Flat-iOS7_PRINTIn a move to boost sales at its retail locations, Apple is set to introduce a new trade-in program to allow customers to swap their old iPhones in for new ones.

Mark Gurman at 9to5Mac has new details on the “Reuse and Recycle” program, which will start rolling out in select stores sometime in early September. You’ll soon be able to walk into an Apple Store, receive a gift card for your old iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, or iPhone 5, and then buy a new phone.

In terms of how much Apple gives you for your old device, that depends on the quality of things like display, buttons, engraving, liquid damage and power. Gurman notes that Apple will offer prices slightly lower than sites like Gazelle or Glyde — around $279 for an unlocked iPhone 5.
