LG has introduced several unique products throughout the years, establishing itself as a major participant in the smartphone manufacturing market. The tech behemoth, on the other hand, is ceasing operations in the smartphone sector.
LG has been unable to make a profit from its cellphones for several years. “LG Electronics looks to have opted to exit its money-losing smartphone business and has begun a transition process to shift its mobile communications personnel to other business units,” according to the Korean Times. Despite releasing a few breakthrough devices that were a big hit with customers, the firm has been losing money since 2015.
LG’s phone is a strong challenger in the Android market. The gadgets were great for budget consumers since they could simply do common activities like iPhone transfer. Even well-known phones like the Nexus 5 and Pixel 2 XL were co-created by the firm.
Since the departure, there is a spot open for smartphone manufactures. Consequently, Apple is taking advantage of LG’s recent smartphone business shutdown by adding many top LG smartphones to its list of eligible Android handsets that may be traded in for credit toward a new iPhone.
Apple today added the LG G8 ThinQ for up to $70, the LG V40 ThinQ for up to $65, the LG V50 ThinQ 5G for up to $125, and the latest LG V60 ThinQ 5G for up to $180 to its list of devices eligible for trade-in towards a new iPhone. Apple estimates the exact worth of the returned item based on its condition, such as if it has scratches or dents and whether it works properly.
As part of Apple’s commitment to being environmentally friendly, any gadgets, regardless of brand or condition, can be traded in for free. A wide range of gadgets, from Blackberry phones to HTC phones, can be exchanged for an Apple Store gift card.
Apple’s trade-in program is designed to persuade customers of other smartphone brands to convert to iPhone by providing discounts on their purchases. The Pixel 4, Pixel 4a, Pixel 5, and Samsung Galaxy Note 20 have all recently been added to Apple’s list of acceptable Android devices for iPhone credit trade-in.
