Apple has confirmed that it’s launching a trade-in program for iPhones after much speculation about its plans for the reselling market over the past several months. The program allows for users to bring in their older phones and get credit toward a newer model. Previous iPhone recycling programs had let users turn in older gadgets for a gift card at Apple’s stores. Apple spokeswoman Amy Bessette confirmed that the company is rolling out its program Friday.
