Frequently Asked Questions
It’s a device trade-in programme offered by Apple. We work with trade-in partners who give you an estimated value based on the device information you provide. 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 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. Apple lets you recycle any Apple device and devices from Apple owned brands at any Apple Store. We’ll make sure it’s 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 purchase of a new product or battery. Visit www.apple.com/trade-in (opens in new window) for more information about our recycling services. You can bring devices of other brands on a like-for-like basis and we’ll recycle them too.
When we receive your device, our partners will inspect it thoroughly. 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.
Generally it takes 2–3 weeks. But the sooner you send us your device, the sooner we can verify its condition and process your trade-in refund or gift card.
You can see the status of your trade-in by following the link in your confirmation email.

No. Old appliances, batteries, as well as all the products which are marked with a cross on top of a rubbish bin with wheels must be collected and recycled separately. There are important materials in old equipment which are recycled separately in a certain way. These raw materials can be used as new material. Some electronic equipment may contain potentially harmful substances which must be disposed of carefully. Apple bears responsibility for the environment and is a member of the recycling programme, just like many other major electrical appliance manufacturers in the UK.
The symbol means that according to local laws and regulations, your product and/or its battery should be disposed of separately from household waste. When this product reaches its end of life, take it to a collection point designated by local authorities. The separate collection and recycling of your product and/or its battery at the time of disposal will help conserve natural resources and ensure that it is recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. For information about Apple’s recycling programme, recycling collection points, restricted substances and other environmental initiatives, visit www.apple.com/uk/environment/.
It depends on what you buy and how you pay for it. If you buy an iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple Watch and pay in full, we’ll apply a refund to your original payment method up to the total purchase price. For any remaining amount, you’ll receive an Apple Gift Card via email.
