Good news for owners of other types of mobile phone such as BlackBerry, Android, or Windows Phone who are looking to make the switch to iPhone, with AppleInsider reporting that Apple has now started to accept trade-ins with non-iPhone handsets in Europe and the US.

As a part of Apple's extended reuse and recycle program, owners of recent Sony, Samsung, Nokia, BlackBerry, HTC or LG phones can now exchange their handset for Apple Store credit.

If you want to make use of the offer, simply take your eligible smartphone along to an Apple Store, or alternatively kick off the process by completing the required forms online.

AppleInsider notes that this is the latest in a series of moves by Apple designed to entice Android owners in particular to switch over to the iPhone from their current handset. To this end, Apple also recently launched an Android-to-iOS migration guide that saw the highest Android switch rate for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus of any iPhone in the past three years.

AppleInsider reports that the scheme is currently available in the US, UK, Italy, and France.
