Yesterday, a flurry of details was released regarding Apple’s upcoming iPhone trade-in program, a sales initiative in partnership with the recycling firm BrightStar aimed at boosting iPhone sales and upgrades at company-run retail outlets across the United States. Sources stepped forward today, offering new details concerning the official name, availability, launch date and terms and conditions.
As suspected all along, the trade-ins will be handled through Apple’s existing Reuse and Recycle Program, which has been available for quite some time. Furthermore, the same program will serve as Apple’s new in-store recycling program.

Bloomberg in June asserted that Apple was gearing up to launch a trade-in program for iPhones at its own retail stores. While the company has been accepting trade-ins through its Reuse and Recycle program for quite some time, this would mark the first time it’s made trade-in offers first hand, via its rumored partnership with the recycling firm Brightstar.
More details have surface Monday on the long-expected initiative designed to allow would-be buyers to earn instant credit for their old iPhones as a way of driving upgrades to newer models. According to one source, Apple will refurbish traded-in iPhones and potentially resell them, while clearing up Genius Bar to focus on non-swappable devices.

Dropbox retiring its legacy API in favor of a next-generation one on September 1 is inevitably going to break apps which plan to continue syncing data through the popular cloud storage service using the legacy API.
Among them: AgileBits’ 1Password 3 for iOS and Mac. Now, this rather useful password management utility has been using Dropbox to sync its secure database across devices for ages.
Users on 1Password 4 are on the safe side because the app already uses the latest version of the Dropbox API so it’ll continue to sync with Dropbox just fine. If you’re on 1Password version 3.x and sync with Dropbox, however, you’ll need to upgrade to the latest version to prevent syncing issues come September 1, or switch to Wi-Fi sync.
So, if you’ve been thinking about upgrading to the latest version, now’s a good time because AgileBits has just sweetened the deal by discounting 1Password 4 by more than 50 percent, for a limited time… Read More
