Through doing so, Appled is looking to grow in the refurbished, resell, and emerging markets. Through hitting this untapped market, Apple is looking to grow their sales, especially after reports that May saw Samsung surpass Apple in phone sales for the first time since the iPhone 5 was released. A move like this would surely boost their sales numbers at is enough to entice iPhone users with older models to upgrade at a discounted price, and allows Apple to make a dent in the resell/refurbished market.  It is estimated that 20 percent U.S. consumers purchasing a smartphone this year will be through a trade-in program, up from 11 percent in 2011.
