Apple’s trade-in values - the amount of credit the company gives you for older devices when upgrading to new ones – have been quietly adjusted by the company.
You can see up to $ 40 more when trading an iPad, but up to $ 540 less when trading a Mac …
I more saw the changes, starting with the good news.
The iPad Pro is now worth up to $ 525, up $ 500. The iPad Air has gone from $ 210 to $ 250, the iPad from $ 200 to $ 240, and the iPad mini from $ 175 to $ 205.
Apple has also slightly increased the price of its Apple Watch models. The Series 4 is now worth up to $ 150 (from $ 140), the Series 3 is now worth $ 95 (from $ 85) and the Series 1 is worth up to $ 35 (from $ 30).
Then it’s not that good.
Apple has lowered the resale value of a few products from its Mac range. The MacBook Pro is down from $ 1760 to $ 1530, the MacBook Air is down from $ 730 to $ 630, the MacBook is down from $ 450 to $ 380, the iMac Pro is down from $ 3580 to $ 3,040, the iMac from $ 1,390 to $ 1,180 and the Mac mini is down to $ 830 from $ 930.
There is what may seem like good news on the Mac Pro front, but so I more notes that Apple is unlikely to have actually increased its trade-in value.
The Mac Pro has gotten a hefty rise to $ 2930 from $ 1490, but this could very well indicate that Apple is now accepting more recent models for trade-in.
You can view all trade-in values here. Apple notes in the fine print that these are only approximate values, so don’t expect to get the published amounts if your device is damaged in any way.
The trade-in value depends on the condition, year, and configuration of your trade-in device. Additional trade-in values for iPhone require the purchase of a new iPhone, subject to availability and limits. You must be at least 18 years old to be eligible for credit or an Apple Gift Card. Not all devices are eligible for credit. More information is available from Apple’s trade-in partner for the exchange and recycling of eligible devices. Limitations and restrictions may apply. Payments are based on the device received that matches the description you provided when your estimate was made. Apple reserves the right to refuse or limit the quantity of a device for any reason. In the Apple Store: Offer available only upon presentation of valid photo ID. The value of your current device can be used towards the purchase of a new Apple device. Offer may not be available in all stores. Some stores may have additional requirements.
You can always get more by selling privately (sometimes very significantly!), But the trade-in program offers customers a risk-free and hassle-free option.
