Apple has launched its iPhone Reuse and Recycle Program in Canada. The move comes about three weeks after Apple Retail Store training began on the service, according to 9to5Mac. The program allows an iPhone user to trade-in their old handset for a gift card that can be applied toward the purchase of the new iPhone. The amount of money on the card varies by model and the quality/age of the older iPhone. Cupertino’s trade-in program first launched in the United States back in August. It arrived in the United Kingdom two months later. As Joe White previously reported, "while convenient, Apple's iPhone trade-in program doesn't offer customers the best deals going for used smartphones." As a reminder, our yearly iPhone Trade-In Guides highlight the differences in handset prices offered by Apple, Gazelle, Glyde, NextWorth, and others.
