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, diverting electronic waste from landfills. 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.

Apple Trade In is a device trade-in program offered by Apple and trade-in partners together. We work with trade-in partners who give you an estimated value based on the device information. 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).

Yes. You can recycle Apple devices and devices not from Apple-owned brands at any Apple Store and online. We’ll make sure they are 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 the purchase of a new product or battery.
When we receive your device, our partners will thoroughly inspect it. If the device is in good working condition, it can be refurbished so it can go on to a new owner. If it’s not in working order, it will be recycled in an environmentally responsible way through one of our partners.
The entire trade-in process takes about two to three weeks. But the faster you send in your device, the sooner your trade-in will be inspected and processed.
You can see the status of your trade-in by following the link in your confirmation email.
Our trade-in partner will inspect your device. If it’s in the condition described, you will receive the quoted value in the form of an Apple Store Gift Card. If it’s not in the condition described, a new quote will be sent to you. You will have the option to either accept this quote and receive an Apple Store Gift Card or reject it and have your device sent back to you for free.
All Apple products are eligible for recycling, and some are also eligible for credit. Either way, give us your used devices, and we will always recycle them in a responsible way.

If you haven’t shipped your device yet, you can cancel your trade-in by visiting our trade-in partners’ sites.

In some cases, your trade-in value can vary depending on whether you send in your power adapter. You don’t have to, but you can send in your chargers and cables, and they will be recycled for you.
Yes, the Apple Trade In program is available in all our retail stores as well as online.
You can trade in as many devices as you like, but we accept only one device per transaction.
Once you fill out your trade-in information with our trade-in partner and verify your email, a trade-in kit will be shipped to you. The kit includes instructions on how to prepare, pack and ship your device.

Devices that contain batteries should be packed in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and industry best practices, which typically include the guidelines below:

  • Discharge the unit to less than 30%.
  • Do not ship electronics that are disassembled into parts.
  • Do not ship electronics with swollen or damaged batteries.
  • For whole units, surround the product with at least 2.5 inches of suitable filler material, such as recycled or reused packaging, on all sides before placing inside a corrugated box.
  • Ship only one device per box.
Follow the shipping instructions provided by our trade-in partners.
It depends on our partners, but usually your Apple Store Gift Card will be issued within 1-2 weeks of shipping your device.
