Alongside the new additions, Apple has also updated the maximum trade-in value of almost all other Android smartphones.

  • Samsung Galaxy S20+: $305, down $10
  • Samsung Galaxy S20: $230, down $10
  • Samsung Galaxy S10+: $250, up $30

Apple determines the exact value of the traded-in product depending on its condition, such as if it has scratches, or dents and if it functions correctly. If a customer has a device not included on Apple's list of trade-in devices, the company does recycle devices for free. More information can be found on Apple's trade-in page.

Won’t last long, most of them buyers will sell their phones once they see all that bloat, lag, camera lag, heat issues, ever wonder why Samsung don‘t offer a 14 days return policy like apple does all around the world, because most people would return their bloatsung phones. ?

I mean, I get that this is an Apple forum and most of us are here because we prefer iPhones, but fanboy nonsense is just silly. Samsung makes some really impressive phones that a lot people prefer. It's ridiculous to dismiss their products as crap, and that's how we get the reputation as "Apple Sheep". Both company's products have advantages and disadvantages over the other, and neither is really objectively better. It's just a matter of preference.
