    Australian customers can now bring older iPhones and iPads to receive up to A$250 to use in a new device purchase. Apple has issued an official statement, announcing the Australian availability of its in-store iOS device trade-in program, which will offer customers in the country up to A$250 (about $234) for iPhone and A$215 (about $202) for iPad trade-ins.

    MSN affiliate Australian publication ninemsn was the first one to report the story:

    However, the latest iOS devices like the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPad Air, and also first-generation products, are not eligible for credit. This makes sense since the latest ones contain parts that are probably too expensive while those from the first waves have innards that are pretty much useless.

    Since debuting its trade-in program in the U.S. last August, Apple has gradually extended it to the UK, Canada, Italy, France and Germany under the Reuse and Recycling banner. Now, Australia is the latest country on the latest.

    Have you ever recycled your old iPhone or iPad? If so, let us know your experience by leaving your comment below.
