    * Use of eSIM requires a wireless service plan (which may include restrictions on switching service providers and roaming, even after contract expires). Not all carriers support eSIM. Use of eSIM in iPhone may be disabled when purchased from some carriers. See your carrier for details. To learn more, visit https://support.apple.com/kb/HT212780.
  • The majority of features will work with your network. Certain features, such as Visual Voicemail, require carrier support and may not function on your carrier’s network. Contact your carrier for more details or read the wireless carrier support and features article for more information.
  • Carriers typically sell iPhone with a contract that subsidizes the initial purchase price of the phone. By purchasing your iPhone without a contract, you can use any SIM card from a compatible carrier, including your current one.
  • Yes. iPhone is enabled to work on networks using GSM around the world. Because iPhone models sold by apple.com are unlocked, you can purchase a SIM card and service from a local carrier at your destination. Or check with your home carrier regarding international roaming charges.
  • No. Orders placed through apple.com can be shipped only within the country or region of purchase. You can also shop for friends and family in countries or regions where iPhone is sold. Just visit the local store of the country or region where you want your products delivered. Or for fast, easy ordering and expert advice, call an Apple Store Specialist on 1‑800‑MY‑APPLE.
  • That depends on how you pay for your new iPhone.

    Once we receive your trade-in device and confirm that the condition matches what you described, there’s nothing more you need to do.

    If you pay monthly with PayBright, we’ll apply the value as an instant credit to lower the monthly payments of your new device. If you pay in full, we’ll credit your payment method after we receive your trade-in.

    If we provide a revised trade-in value based on the condition of your old iPhone, we’ll work with you to confirm that you still want to move forward with the trade-in.

  • Yes. When you buy your new iPhone online or in a store, you can trade in an eligible iPhone and get credit applied to your purchase.* You can also get an Apple Store Gift Card online or at an Apple Store when you trade in any eligible smartphone with Apple Trade In. In either case, if your smartphone or iPhone is not eligible for credit, we’ll recycle it for free. No matter the model or condition, we can turn it into something good for you and good for the planet.
  • Apple Trade In makes it easy to get credit towards the purchase of your next iPhone. Simply answer a few questions about your device. Based on what you tell us, we’ll provide an estimated trade-in value. If you pay monthly, we’ll apply the value as instant credit to lower the monthly payments of your new iPhone. 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 receive the trade-in kit, you have 15 days to prepare and send in your device. If you added a trade-in to an iPhone order, you may receive the kit along with your new device. Otherwise, it will be mailed to you separately as soon as your new product is ready for delivery or pickup. 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 iPhone, you’ll receive an Apple Gift Card by email with the remaining amount.

    The online trade-in process generally takes two to three 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.
