MacRumours has just came up with a new report that Apple Inc. has already started training its employees at retails stores in order to make them ready for the forthcoming iPhone trade-in program, as the launch is expected soon. Here is an excerpt from the original report of MacRumours:


“There has been little in the way of update on Apple’s plans for the program since June, but MacRumors has now received word from several sources reporting that Apple is indeed beginning to prepare its store employees for the program. Apple has reportedly sent materials to its stores to support the initiative, while the first line of store trainers will be receiving instruction about the program today. Those trainers will then begin training other store employees next week ahead of a program launch.”


Bloomberg has reported back in June that Apple was ready to launch the trade-in program in order to increase iPhone sales within the retail stores in association with Brightstar, a mobile phone distributor. As far as Canada is concerned there is no word on the street whether the program will launch here or not, but retail sources of iPhoninCanada have revealed that it is “likely” to come to Canadian stores as well.


Both the reports look quite credible because numerous reports had already confirmed that Apple is likely to launch the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C on September 10th in an event. Therefore, this is the perfect time to train the employees of the retail stores, as it could prove quite beneficial for Apple in increasing the sales of its iPhones within the stores. Moreover, this news has also raised the hopes of those who are of the view that Apple will hold a launch event for its iPhones on September 10.


To the extent next iPhones are concerned, the leaked images and reports have confirmed that high-end iPhone 5S will come in four colours, while its processor is going to be 31 percent faster than the A6 chip of current iPhone 5. While, the low-cost version of smartphone will be called iPhone 5C and it will come in plastic clad and wide range of colours just like Apple’s iPod. The Cupertino company has developed the iPhone 5C to capture developing markets like China, Japan and India, where cheap Android devices have a high demand.


So Apple expects that by bring in low-cost iPhone 5C, it will be able to give a tough time to its rival companies, particularly Samsung.
