If you own a white iPhone 4 that has been giving you some difficulties and you’ve been thinking about trading in your older Apple iPhone model for the newer iPhone 4S model you might not have to spend the extra money that usually goes with such a purchase.
How? There have been reports coming out, specifically from 9to5Mac, about how some Apple Store Genius Bars are accepting the white iPhone 4 in exchange for the iPhone 4S, and you don’t have to pay for an upgrade fee or anything like that.
All you have to do is make sure that your iPhone 4 is under warranty and head on down to your nearest Apple Store Genius Bar to see if they are one of the of Genius Bars partaking in the iPhone exchange program.
Your damaged iPhone 4 will be exchanged for a refurbished iPhone 4S but even if it’s a refurbished model that you get in return you’re still going to wind up with an iPhone that has a better camera, the A5 chip and, whether you like it or not, Siri.
It’s kind of a no-brainer to upgrade to a better all around iPhone when given the opportunity and it’s an even easier slam dunk decision to make when the upgrade won’t cost you a single penny more.
The reason why Apple is putting on such an exchange program is that some of their Apple Stores are low in white iPhone 4 supply and they need to re-stock their shelves any way they can and this is one option that will please many white iPhone 4 owners who want to own the shiner iPhone 4S.
Of course not all Apple Stores need more stock of the white iPhone 4 so don’t go into your local Apple Store expecting to be handed a brand new iPhone 4S, or even worse, purposely damage your white iPhone 4 thinking you’re automatically guaranteed an iPhone 4S for it.
