The announcement comes ahead of Apple's widely-expected plan to introduce new iPhone models on September 10.
Apple plans to offer about $120 to $200 for 16GB iPhone 4 and 4S models, and about $225 for a 16GB iPhone 5 in good condition, according to TechCrunch.
Several sites are reporting that Apple plans to announce a gold-plated iPhone 5S later this year. Gold is a popular color in China, which only stands to help Apple’s sales effort in that region.
The new iPhone is expected to keep the same design as the current iPhone 5, but also include, among other new features, a fingerprint scanner on the Home button for login authentication.
The HiRise is compatible with iPhones and other Apple devices even while in a carrying case and can be handy for using such apps as FaceTime where you want a simple, secure way to prop the device for viewing.
(Use of the HiRise accessory with the 4th-generation iPad is not recommended because of the device’s size)
The program will be held at both official Apple Retail Stores and Authorized Apple Resellers and will officially kickoff on August 16th.
Apple said it plans to recycle the adaptors that are traded-in. Details from Apple on this limited time offer are below.

For a limited time, you can purchase one Apple USB power adapter at a special price — $10 USD or approximate equivalent in local currency. To qualify, you must turn in at least one USB power adapter and bring your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to an Apple Retail Store or [...]
Citing unnamed Apple suppliers in Asia, The Wall Street Journal claims that Apple is testing a 12.9-inch iPad and has asked its partners for “prototype smartphone screens larger than 4-inch”.
This report certainly adds weight to the rumor of Apple making a larger iPad. Korean website ETNews carried the same rumor of a 12.9-inch iPad in May and said that the model would bear the somewhat unlikely moniker of the ‘iPad maxi’.
It also appears as though the firm will look to go bigger with future iPhones too, with Reuters reporting last month that Apple is considering 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch screens for the iPhone 5, sizes which would push the Cupertino [...]
A new report says iOS's share of the mobile ad market grew from 59% to 64% between May of last year and May, 2013, according to mobile ad firm Velti. Android's share slipped from 41% to 36% in 2013.
The iPhone 5's share grew by 7.4% over the year period, while the iPad added 3.7%.
Velti's report also notes that advertisers are ditching smaller display size ad units in favor of bigger ones.
Full screen interstitial, as well as 300 x 250 and 728 x 90 ads are all showing growth, while 320 x 50 ads on the iPhone specifically have seen a decline in usage.
