Apple Now Accepting iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, and 6s Plus Trade-Ups, Offers Up to $315

iphone-trade-upFollowing last week's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus launch, Apple has added the iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 6s Plus to its trade-up program in the United States, offering estimated trade-in values of $160, $275, and $315 respectively towards the purchase of a new iPhone.

Apple has also lowered its estimated trade-in values for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus by $25 each to $200 and $225 respectively, while the iPhone 5s now scores $90 instead of $125. iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c trade-in values are now $50 and $40 respectively, down from $75 each, and the iPhone 4s is no longer eligible for trade in.

• iPhone 5 - $50
• iPhone 5c - $40
• iPhone 5s - $90
• iPhone SE - $160
• iPhone 6 - $200
• iPhone 6 Plus - $225
• iPhone 6s - $275
• iPhone 6s Plus - $315

The iPhone trade-up program, not to be confused with the iPhone Upgrade Program, allows customers to trade in their old iPhone to Apple in exchange for credit to lower the full cost of a new iPhone, or to reduce the monthly payments of a carrier financing plan. Trade-in values, managed by third-party vendor Brightstar Corporation, may vary based on the condition of the iPhone traded in. Select Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone devices are also eligible for trade in.

iPhone owners looking to get the best value for their old smartphone should consider selling privately through websites like eBay or Craigslist, but Apple's trade-up program does provide a convenient and safe resale option.

Ridiculous.

So, I paid $700 +/- last year for my 6s and they're only offering "up to 325". Don't think even a luxury a car losses value that fast in a year.

With how much money they profit, they just want more.

Are they going to sell them with their ways for more expensive ? Who knows...

What is sad is people not knowing or not like us on here with some knowledge will do it.

Greedy bas#%rds.

I'd rather glue my phone to my car and boast that my new car tracker security system can also play music.

Apple somehow thinks all their customers can literally piss money.

I don't understand the pissing and moaning. It's just an offer, which you can take or not......

If 50% yearly is Apple's idea of depreciation, they sell economical junkfood and better start lowering their prices

You are better off selling the phone on eBay or somewhere like that. You can get much better prices than the generic Apple price.

It's a good thing that I rather pass down the older electronics to mum and dad, family or just friends.
I get to update, and they get a perfectly functional device for years to come. :)
