iPhones still hot for recycling
Apple first quarter sales for the iPhone 4S have helped double Apple’s sales from last year. New figures show that in the first three months, Apple iPhone sales were worth £7.2 billion. The company has managed to make 35 million mobile phone sales between January and March because of the new phone. They have also seen more sales with the iPad 3, helping to increase their earnings for the first and second quarter. It will be a strong year for Apple as a company, but it is also a strong year for mobile phone recycling.
Mobile phone recyclers announced their main recycled phone right now is the older versions of iPhone from Apple. A variety of phones turned in is the first and second editions of the iPhone, but quite a few iPhone 4 models, the 4S predecessor, are also being given for mobile phone recycling. It is good news for families that are unable to afford the new phone. Through the mobile phone recycling option, the iPhone 4 used models will be examined for resale and many will be sold again. It allows the company to make money from the purchase of the recycled phone and it gives consumers a chance to afford a phone they are not able to when it is sold as new.
While the iPhone 4 is not the latest in the series, it is still a great phone and one worthy of a used sale purchase after it has gone through recycling.
