A better way to part with your favorite device.

You’ll see what it’s worth instantly.

Just answer a few questions about your device. Based on what you tell us, we’ll offer you a competitive trade-in estimate for an Apple Store Gift Card or instant credit at an Apple Store.1 Or you’ll have the option to recycle it for free.

Your data stays safe.

Before you hand off your device, we'll show you how to safely back up and wipe your data, so you can keep all your information to yourself.2 If it’s an Apple product, it’s even easier. Just use iCloud or Time Machine to move everything in a few steps.

It goes on to help the planet.

You may be done with your device, but chances are it still has more to give. If it’s in good shape, we’ll help it go to a new owner. If not, we’ll send it to our recycling partner, so we can save more precious materials and take less from the earth.

And if it’s an iPhone, it could even go to Daisy, our disassembly robot that can efficiently recover the resources inside.3

Just mail it out or bring it in.

Trading in your device is as easy as buying a new one. We’ll give you a prepaid trade-in kit or shipping label to send it off. Or you can bring it to an Apple Store. We’ll either give you instant credit toward the purchase of a new product or send your device on to our recyclers.

What is Apple Trade In?

Apple Trade In is a device trade-in program offered by Apple. We work with our trade-in partner who gives you an estimated value based on the device information you provide. If you accept the quote, our partner will send you shipping materials (at no cost to you), and you can send in your device.

Our partner will inspect your device, and if it is in the condition stated, you’ll receive an Apple Store Gift Card for the quoted amount. If the device is not in the stated condition, our partner will send you a new quote. You can either accept the new quote or have your device sent back (at no cost to you).

Does Apple offer recycling?

Yes. Apple Trade In lets you recycle any Apple device and devices from Apple owned brands at any Apple Store and online. We’ll make sure it’s recycled responsibly or given a chance to be used again. Some devices may also be eligible for credit. You can bring your batteries and old Apple-products to any Apple Store, and we’ll recycle them responsibly, free of charge. We accept any small product or battery without purchase of a new product or battery. Visit www.apple.com/ae/trade-in/ for more information about our recycling services.

Should I choose a trade-in refund or an Apple Store Gift Card?

If you’re ready to buy a new product at an Apple Store, you can bring your old device with you. If it’s eligible for trade-in, we’ll apply an instant credit at the time of purchase. The only exception is that we don’t currently accept iMac trade-ins in the Apple Store.

Alternatively, you can trade in your old device online for an Apple Store Gift Card via email that you can apply to any future Apple purchase.
