Great news! Now Apple will accept your broken iPhones as trade-in

Dig out your run-down iPhone -- handsets with broken screens, cameras and buttons are now part of the Apple Store's Reuse and Recycle program.

The Cupertino tech giant had previously insisted on used iPhones being in good condition before accepting them against the cost of a new piece of kit; fully operational handsets would net returning customers up to $350 USD in credit.

In a widening of Apple Store policy, damaged phones are now included in the scheme, with rates of up to $50 for an iPhone 5s, $200 for an iPhone 6, and $250 for an iPhone 6 Plus, Apple said February 5, verifying an early report from 9to5Mac.

Selected stores will also begin to offer an official screen protector application service.
