Apple increases trade-in valuations of some iPhone models and other devices


If you rely on using a trade-in to keep the purchase price down when buying a new Apple device, we have some good news for you. The company has increased the trade-in values for a few older iPhone models. Apple also hiked the trade-in values of some iPad tablets and Apple Watches. The new trade-in values have been posted on the online Apple Store homepage.


Apple expands the range of the iPad Air which now fetches as much as $320 in a trade

The iPhone models that are now worth more in a trade-in include the iPhone 13 Pro Max which was given a $30 or 5.3% boost leaving the device with a trade-in valuation of up to $600. The previous trade-in value for the phone peaked at $570. The iPhone 13 Pro also got a $30 bump giving it a valuation of up to $500 from its previous value of up to $470. That works out to an increase of 6.4%.


Own the iPhone 12 Pro Max from 2020? Use it in a trade and you can get up to $420 in value which is $20 (or 5%) higher than the previous trade-in valuation. The iPhone 7 Plus, released in 2016, now can generate as much as $60 in value for a trade-in. This works out to a $10 or 20% increase from the maximum $50 you would have received in a trade previously. Apple has hiked the trade-in value of the iPad Air tablet by a whopping $90 or 39% from $230 to as much as $320 depending on the condition and age of the slate. On the other end of the spectrum, the plain old ordinary iPad will fetch as much as $165 in a trade. The previous maximum value was $160 so this results in a puny $5 or 3.1% increase. Other devices that now have a higher trade-in value include:

  • Apple Watch Series 7: Up to $165 (up from $160 for a $5 or a 3.1% increase)

  • Apple Watch SE: Up to $70 (up from $65 for a $5 or a 7.7% increase)

  • Apple Watch Series 5: Up to $80 (up from $75 for a $5 or a 6.7% increase)

  • Apple Watch Series 4: Up to $50 (up from $45 for a $5 or an 11.1% increase)


The complete and current list of trade-in values for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch models is as follows:

  • iPhone 13 Pro Max Up to $600

  • iPhone 13 Pro Up to $500

  • iPhone 13 Up to $400

The increase in trade-in values might not amount to big savings, but it is better than having trade-in values reduced. And by the way, if you're gung ho about trading in an Apple device you own but you're not sure which device you want to buy, you can get an Apple gift card worth the amount of your trade-in and use it when you've decided which Apple product you want to buy.
