Starting today, Apple will be offering an in-store trade-in program for iPhones. The program complements Apple's existing online effort, which gets you an Apple Store gift card in exchange for your old phone. Apple has reportedly confirmed the program, but there aren't details about how it'll work just yet. According to CNBC, the new program requires that you sign up for a new carrier contract and that you'll have to put whatever credit Apple offers you towards the purchase of a new device. That should help move some units when the new iPhones Apple is announcing on September 10th hit stores. [CNBC]
