What is Apple Trade In?

Buying a smart phone often comes against the challenge of reselling or even throwing away a device you are currently using. Several mobile phone stores and developers have their own apps to help users at this point, to offer discounts or facilitate the disposal of very old devices, to assist users in the process. Apple is one such company, owned by Apple Trade In.

What is Apple Trade In?

Apple Trade In is an app that a large company offers discounts for the purchase of a new iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch or other branding device in exchange for an old device. Users who prefer to do just exchanges, without having to purchase another model at a time, still have the option to receive a Gift Card from Apple Store for future purchases – but without the additional discounts offered by the exchange.

Estimated amounts of discounts vary according to the design of the mobile phone, and may be as low as evaluated by Apple experts. Among the branded products eligible for Trade In are the following designs, with the highest discounts offered:
