Also, if you usually buy lower storage iPhone (128 or 256), then Apple trade-in is beneficial because they disregard storage.
By contrast, if you usually buy higher storage iPhone (512 or 1024), then Apple trade-in is less beneficial.
But the biggest benefit of Apple trade-in is your peace of mind, no scams, no fraud, no stress. You know you're in good hands.
Apple pays peanuts.
