What’s new in the renewal program is that, starting this week, those iPhones that have a broken screen, camera or buttons will be accepted . Until now, the renewal program only accepted iPhones that were in perfect condition so that they could be exchanged for a new iPhone at a reduced price.
The program is valid for the iPhone 5s, 6 and 6 Plus
This will be valid with the iPhone 5s, 6 and 6 Plus. The iPhone 5 and all previous generations are excluded from the program for a simple matter of age. The idea is that the customer will be encouraged to renew the phone instead of repairing the model they already have and thus give some life to sales. Since 9to5Mac comment that an iPhone 5s can give a discount of 50 dollars, while an iPhone 6 will give it 200 and an iPhone 6 Plus will give it 250 dollars.
The other part is very good news for those users who, like me, are too paranoid to install a screen saver that demands some precision: Apple has partnered with Belkin to offer the placement of its screen savers using a device that does it with precision.
Until now, when someone asked for it, the Apple Store could not offer to place it because if something went wrong there was no responsibility of the company (the product to be installed is from a third party). But now it is enough to buy that protector and the store staff will install it right away with the machine you can see in the video above.
If the installation still fails, Apple will replace the protector free of charge. For the time being this program is available today, but only in a few selected stores around the world. Just ask.
