Apple hosted a special "Gather Round" event at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, Calif., During which the company unveiled three new iPhone models, and also made a tempting "green" offer to owners of older models to pay their expenses for the disposal of gadgets.
So, in accordance with the GiveBack program, Apple is ready to pay $ 525 for an iPhone X in good condition, as well as for older models with various damages - but, however, much less. To do this, you need to fill out a special questionnaire to determine the compliance of the state of the gadget with the requirements of the compensation conditions. Moreover, the company will pay for the disposal of "other people's" products, in particular, Samsung Galaxy, Google Pixel and a number of others.
Apple's goal is simple and clear - it is much easier to extract rare earth metals from used gadgets than from the bowels of the Earth. At the same time, members of the GiveBack program get rid of unnecessary (and very problematic) electronic waste and get paid for it.
