Microsoft is only taking the iPhone 4S or iPhone 5

Microsoft isn't going to stop until every Apple user hands over their device in favor of a new Windows Phone or Surface.

Microsoft recently launched a program that gives iPad users $200 to trade in their iOS-powered tablet for a Surface. Now, the company is gunning for the iPhone with a similar program. 

According to Forbes, Microsoft will offer a minimum $200 in-store credit to those willing to give up their iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 for a new Windows Phone or other item in the Microsoft Stores. 

This is part of Microsoft's #timetoswitch campaign, which is trying to encourage mobile users to switch to Windows Phone and Surface products.

Apple isn't the only target. Microsoft also launched an online program that allows Apple, Android or BlackBerry users to trade their devices in for a Visa gift card. 

Microsoft likely hopes that it can grab some smartphone market share by luring in the competitive devices and offering its own for cheaper prices. While Apple recently released its iPhone 5S and 5C -- which were big hits for the company, selling over 9 million devices over the initial launch weekend -- some people don't want to pay top dollar for a new device, which may make Microsoft's offer look good.
