It appears Apple is taking extra steps to entice more consumers to buy its next iPhone.

According to the tech site 9 To 5 Mac, which cites “sources with knowledge of the initiative,” the company will launch a trade-in program allowing owners of older iPhones to upgrade to newer models at a lower price.

TechCrunch goes a step further, reporting the program has been available at various Apple stores for a few weeks.

The program would let consumers bring in their old iPhone to any Apple store and receive credit toward a new device, so long as they are eligible for a smartphone upgrade. The iPhone 4 and 4S could fetch up to $200, while an iPhone 5 could net as much as $250, the report says.
