It’s our trade-in and recycling programme that’s good for you and the planet. If your current iPad is eligible for trade-in credit, you can offset the purchase price of a new one.* If it’s not eligible for credit, you can recycle it for free.
Just answer a few questions either in an Apple Store or online regarding the model and condition of your Apple Watch. We’ll provide either an estimated trade-in value or a simple way to recycle it.
If you’re trading in online, we’ll calculate your estimated trade-in value during the purchase of your new Apple Watch. Then we’ll send you a trade-in kit (at no cost to you) so you can send us your device. Once we’ve received your trade-in device, a team will inspect it and verify its condition. If everything checks out, we’ll either refund the purchase method you used to buy your new Apple Watch or we’ll send you an Apple Store Gift Card via email. If the condition doesn’t match what you described, a new estimated trade-in value will be sent to you via email. You’ll have the option to either accept this revised quote or reject it. If you reject it, your device will be sent back to you at no charge.
If you accept the trade-in estimate in the store, we’ll give you instant credit towards a purchase.
And if you choose to recycle your device, we’ll either handle it in the store or provide a pre-paid shipping label so you can send your device to our accredited recycling partner.
** Trade-in values will vary based on the condition, year and configuration of your trade-in device. You must be at least 18 years old to be eligible to trade in for credit or for an Apple Store Gift Card. Not all devices are eligible for credit. More details are available from Apple’s trade-in partner for trade-in and recycling of eligible devices. Restrictions and limitations may apply. Payments are based on the received device matching the description you provided when your estimate was made. Apple reserves the right to refuse or limit the quantity of any device for any reason.
