If you think your broken smartphone is worthless, think again.

First reported by the Apple-focused tech blog and confirmed Friday by Apple, the company will pay for broken iPhones.

For damaged phones, it will pay $50 for a 5S, $150 for a 6 and $200 for a 6 Plus.

It’s an upgrade to Apple’s current iPhone trade-in program which already gives customers who trade their old model phone credit toward the purchase of a new model. The company pays up to $350 for phones without cracked screens or broken buttons.

The website says Apple hopes the program will encourage people to upgrade their phones instead of just paying to replace a broken screen.
