Apple is expanding its trade-in program to include four LG smartphones at a time when the latter is shutting down its smartphone business.
LG announced in April it would shut down its smartphone business by July 31. Once one of the leading smartphone manufacturers, the company fell behind Apple, Samsung, Huawei and others. LG explored a number of options before finally settling on shutting the division down.
First spotted by AppleInsider, Apple has added four additional LG smartphones to the trade-in program.
- LG V60 ThinQ 5G, up to $180
- LG V50 ThinQ 5G, up to $125
- LG V40 ThinQ, up to $65
- LG G8 ThinQ, up to $70
Apple is clearly looking to capitalize on LG’s exit from the smartphone business. The trade-in deals may help the company pick up some LG customers.
