You can now trade-in your Android, Windows or BlackBerry smartphone for credit at Apple Stores

Apple’s getting a bit friendlier about trading in your device through its Reuse and Recycling program.

The company now lets you bring in non-Apple smartphones – including Android Windows, and BlackBerry devices – to one of its stores for credits towards a new purchase of an iPhone 5c, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Likewise, you can now trade-in a PC computer in exchange for a discount on a new Mac.

Apple Reuse and Recycle Recycling
The new trade-in offer shows up on individual store pages, so it’s currently only available at physical retail locations; the online Reuse and Recycling page doesn’t allow non-Apple devices for credit.

Previously, Apple would only offer credit for Apple products. While that would allow it to easily recycle parts from its old devices, the expanded offer now gives non-Apple users new incentive to make a switch.
