    Apple has recently made some changes to its Reuse and Recycling Program and now the company will accept water-damaged iOS devices that you could trade in for an Apple Store gift card. So, If you dropped your iPhone or iPad in the toilet or in the bathtub or maybe rain has caused some damage to it, you’re not completely out of luck.

    Now, Apple customers can trade in their iPhones or iPads that have been exposed to water or other liquids, but the amount of the gift cards you will receive could be affected by over $100 in some situations.

    Besides buying used iPhones, iPods,iPads and Macs, Apple has partnered with PowerON to buy even various other non-Apple products. Previously, the Reuse and Recycling Program policy stipulated that devices with liquid damage could not be accepted in the trade-in. The AppleInsider Staff has more details regarding how water damage could affect the cost of a good condition iPhone:

    The Reuse and Recycling Program started two years ago, in 2011 and offers Apple Store gift cards instead of cash for used products, which is a smart solution, as Apple’s clients spend that money buying Apple’s products or services.
