Apple’s trade-in values - the amount of credit the company will grant you for older devices when upgrading to new ones – has been quietly adjusted by the company.
You may see up to $ 40 more when trading on an iPad, but up to $ 540 less when trading on a Mac …
iMore identified the changes, starting with the good news.
The iPad Pro is now worth up to $ 525, from $ 500. The iPad Air has gone from $ 210 to $ 250, the iPad from $ 200 to $ 240, and the iPad mini from $ 175 to $ 205.
Apple has also raised the price of its Apple Watch models slightly. Series 4 is now worth up to $ 150 (from $ 140), Series 3 is now worth $ 95 (from $ 85) and Series 1 up to $ 35 (from $ 30).
So the not so good.
Apple has cut trade-in values for some products from its Mac lineup. MacBook Pro dropped from $ 1760 to $ 1530, MacBook Air dropped to $ 630 from $ 730, MacBook dropped to $ 380 from $ 450 , the iMac Pro dropped to $ 3,040 from $ 3,580, the iMac down to $ 1,180 from $ 1,390, and the Mac mini dropped to $ 830 from $ 930.
There is what may seem like good news on the Mac Pro front, but how iMore notes, Apple is unlikely to actually have increased its trade-in values.
The Mac Pro received a sharp increase to $ 2930 from $ 1490, but that could indicate Apple is now accepting newer models for trade-in.
