iPhone upgrade deal offered on Website

Apple Website has offer to upgrade your current IPhone in Any Condition! for a new. Went to shop but was refused an iphone6 upgrade to Xr due to water damage? Clearly the Any Condition advertisement is false be aware

Looking at the Apple UK site I can see an offer to upgrade your iPhone by trading it in and receiving a gift card. The offer says:-

"Trade in your eligible device for an Apple Store Gift Card. If it’s not eligible for credit, we’ll recycle it for free. No matter the model or condition, we can turn it into something good for you and good for the planet."

I read that as meaning that no matter what condition the phone is in, Apple can do something with it, even if it's only recycling it for you. the caveat is in those words "...If it's not eligible for credit". I would imagine that to be eligible the phone must at least be working.

Alternatively, there's an upgrade programme which basically involves taking out a loan for the new iPhone, and becoming eligible for a new phone after 11 months and every 11 months are that as long as you keep on taking out new loans.

The Iphone6 I have is fully functional just some wear and tear damage and a water mark on the display. Where is the something good for me whateve the condition? good for the planet is the recycling.

This is just another example of false advertising to get you in the shop, then the excuses start!

What do you think that advertising is designed to do?

If you read carefully, there will be no lies but it will be written in a way that is easily misinterpreted, in their favour
