How did I trade-in my iPhone 4s for iPhone 6s?

Apple has a iPhone Trade-in program which allows you to give your eligible smartphone( my case iPhone 4 or above versions) for a new iPhone of your choice. Few weeks back we trade in our iPhone 4s for a brand new iPhone 6s. Here is how

1) Go to an Apple Store location

We had a iPhone 4s which become sluggish in performance. Apple Trade-in program is available in Apple Store only.. So, we had to go to an Apple sore nearby for iPhone trade-in program.

2) Trade-in  old iPhone 4S  and Erased all data on old iPhone

We Backed up our data using my  iTunes/iCloud ( photos, music, notes  and contacts etc ) before we stepped in to Apple store. When we were at Apple store, Apple employee helped us to erase all data and settings in front of us.

3) Got a new iPhone 6s using Apple Trade-in program with Installment  plan
