Apple Offers Owners Broken Screen Relief

Apple reportedly will soon accept iPhones with cracked screens or cameras and give you credit in return so you can purchase a new one.

Trade-in values for broken devices will reportedly be $50 for the iPhone 5S, $200 for the iPhone 6, and $250 for the iPhone 6 Plus. Larger storage size devices will be worth even more.

“The broken iPhone values appear to be worth about one-third less or half the value of comparable devices in good condition,” reports. “The broken iPhone trade in program may encourage consumers to upgrade their devices rather than paying for a just a screen repair – which may be cheaper in some cases.”

Also in adding some protection to devices, Apple retail employees will soon be able to install screen protectors on iPhones that are purchased at the Apple store, Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac reports.
