Apple Launches Limited-Time Bonus Trade-In Credit for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch in Many Countries

Apple has launched a special limited-time offer for iPhone, Apple Watch, Mac, and iPad trade-in that offers customers additional credit when trading in their only device for a new one.

The offer is being run in several countries including the US, UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, China, India, and France. In the UK, Apple is offering up to £50 of extra trade-in credit for specific ‌iPhone‌ and ‌iPad‌ models and up to £30 for certain Mac and Apple Watch models. Apple is automatically applying for the additional trade-in credit during the process.

As always, exact trade-in values will depend on the model of the device and other factors like its condition. Apple earlier this week cut down on the base trade-in value of some its devices, but with the offer that runs until May 31, the losses should be less for customers trading devices.

Update 7:15 a.m.: The bonus is now also showing as available in the United States with bonuses of up to $50 on ‌iPhone‌ and ‌iPad‌, up to $40 on Apple Watch, and just $10 on Mac.

Additional credit seems OK for other countries, but why not for the US?
Because they just lowered it SUBSTANTIALLY for the US so would be an odd move. My M1 iMac lost $400 trade in value overnight so my $1600 MSRP less than 1yr old iMac is worth about $440…

Ha not even a week after they lower the trade-in values they offer this “bonus.” That’s unethical business practice.
Original price: Meh
Cut value + bonus: Generous Apple!

Lol. Slash trade-in values, then bring a little of it back as a limited offer? It's like they don't even want people to trade in their devices.
