Apple Now Accepting Trade-Ins of Mac Studio, 13-inch M2 MacBook Air, and 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro

Apple is now allowing customers to trade-in a Mac Studio, 13-inch M2 MacBook Air, and 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro for credit towards new Apple product purchases.

As part of Apple's trade-in program, customers can trade in a Mac Studio and receive up to $1,500 of credit towards purchasing a new product. Apple is also offering up to $450 for a 13-inch M2 MacBook Air and up to $775 for a 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro.

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 will also recycle it for free. More information can be found on Apple's trade-in page.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman in late May anticipated the trade-in policy change would happen on June 5, the same day that WWDC 2023 kicked off.

I bought the $1999 Mac Studio last year. It's quoting me $1050 for trade-in.
I guess that's not too bad, though there's no way I'd replace this beaut so quickly.

Yes, but the trade-in experience will feel 'magical!'

Ridiculous trade-in values... That's what I was saying the other day.
Macs now lose their value so quickly!
They don't lose their value quickly, Apple has always been horrid with their trade-in values. Always sell it yourself if you want max value.

I feel seriously screwed....I pulled the Trigger a month ago on a $5700 Mac Studio because Mark Gurman said Apple wasn't going to release a new one with an M2 this year. I decided I wasn't going to wait another year. I really wanted the M2 to drive an 8K display. Last week Gurman comes out saying the M2 Studio was going to happen, and I quickly checked to see if I was still in my return window from Apple. I was ONE day out of the window, so I'm stuck with it. Laughable that Apple would be happy to give me $1500 for something they just took $5700 for.
First, you made an actual financial decision on the musings of a rumor chimp?

Second, go to Apple, today if possible, and check if you can return outside the window. They might make an exception. I wouldn't mention Gurman, just that you didn't know a new one would be released so soon. Be polite, and, if one store says no, it's worth trying a second or third. I suspect there's some room for discretion in their policies.

Still, don't be too surprised if they come back with noes across the board.

Good to know. But one can get better price by selling it somewhere else.
