Since we are on the topic, let s give you a small recap on Apple s popular buyback offer. After launching the iPhone 5 with zero interest EMI scheme, Apple introduced an upgrade offer for the iPhone 4, wherein buyers can bring any leading smartphone to a participating retail outlet and get at least Rs 7,000 off on the purchase of an iPhone 4. The retailer though has the final say in the price of the old phone and buyers only need to bring the phone and the charger to avail the discount. What differentiates this offer from others in the market is that Apple promises a minimum of Rs 7,000 off to the buyers.
