  • You can trade in many different Apple devices for a credit by bank transfer. If your device isn’t eligible for any trade-in value, you can still recycle it with Apple for free.
  • Yes, engraved Apple products are eligible for trade-in. If the device was engraved by Apple, its trade-in value won’t be impacted. However, third-party engraving may affect your device’s value.
  • It depends on the device, model, manufacturer and condition. Answer a few questions accurately, and once we’ve received the device within the specified time frame and verified its condition, you’ll most likely receive the full amount of the estimated refund.

    Keep in mind that we need to receive your trade-in device within 14 days of when you receive your new device, and the condition of your trade-in needs to match what you told us.
  • Yes, the Apple Trade In programme is available on apple.com as well as in all our retail stores.

    A Specialist will evaluate your device on the spot, so the trade-in credit you get in the store may differ from the estimated trade-in value you received online if the condition doesn’t match what you described.
