  • Apple Trade In makes it easy to get credit toward the purchase of your next iPad. Simply answer a few questions about your device. If your iPad is engraved, it may be eligible for trade-in. Based on what you tell us, we’ll provide an estimated trade-in value. If you pay monthly, we’ll apply the value as an instant credit to lower the monthly payments of your new iPad. If you pay in full, we’ll credit your payment method after we receive your trade-in. If it’s not eligible for credit, you can recycle it for free.

    Once you accept the estimated trade-in value quote, we'll ship you a free trade-in kit. When we receive your trade-in, we'll verify its condition, and if everything checks out, your trade-in will be complete. If your device doesn’t match the condition you described, you’ll receive an email with next steps. If you paid in full and the value of your device was more than the cost of your new iPad, you’ll receive an Apple Gift Card by email with the remaining amount.

    The online trade-in process generally takes 2–3 weeks.

    You can also trade in your device at an Apple Store at the point of purchase, however the trade-in value in the store may be different from the estimated trade-in value you received online.
