 The Apple Store Reuse and Recycle iPhone trade-in program used to have strict guidelines for what old iPhones they would take in.

The buttons had to be functioning, and the screen could not be cracked.

Now, the terms have loosened a bit as Apple hopes that this new initiative will lead to more phone upgrades.

9to5Mac reported Thursday that those with an iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s can bring in their iPhones with damaged buttons, displays and screens within reason.

An iPhone 5s can get you an extra $50, a 6 can go for $200 and a 6 plus can get you up to $250.
