Apple has announced adjustments to its estimated trade-in values for a range of iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Android smartphone models in the United States. These changes bring both good news and disappointment to Apple enthusiasts, as some devices have seen slight increases in trade-in value while others have experienced decreases.
The updated trade-in program reveals a positive outcome for owners of newer devices, with trade-in values being raised by $10 or $20. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro Max, as well as the latest iPad Pro, iPad mini, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air models, have all received a boost in their trade-in worth. This adjustment is likely to please those considering an upgrade to Apple’s latest offerings.
Not only have the iPhones and iPads enjoyed a surge in trade-in value, but Apple Watch SE values have also seen an increase of up to $10. The Apple Watch Series 6, Apple Watch Series 5, and 12-inch MacBook models have not been left behind, as their trade-in values have risen by up to $5. These enhancements could entice users to part ways with their older devices and embrace the newer iterations.
However, not all devices have been fortunate enough to witness an upward adjustment in their trade-in values. Several older Apple devices, such as the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus, have experienced a decrease of up to $10 in their trade-in worth. Android smartphone owners may be more disheartened, as their devices have seen steeper declines in trade-in value. This could pose a dilemma for those looking to switch from Android to Apple’s ecosystem.

One notable decrease in trade-in value comes in the form of the Mac Studio, which has witnessed a decline of up to $75. This decrease follows the recent launch of the second-generation Mac Studio, featuring the highly anticipated M2 Max and M2 Ultra chips. The new model’s arrival has inevitably affected the value of its predecessor.
Apple’s trade-in program provides users with the option to complete the trade-in process through the company’s website or at any Apple retail store. The credit obtained from the trade-in can be applied towards the purchase of a new Apple product or can be loaded onto an Apple gift card.
