Apple today adjusted its estimated trade-in values for select iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Android smartphone models in the United States, with some devices slightly increasing in value and others seeing decreases.

iPhone Trade In Box
Trade-in values increased by $10 or $20 for many newer devices, including the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro Max, and the latest iPad Pro, iPad mini, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air models. Apple Watch SE values rose by up to $10, while Apple Watch Series 6, Apple Watch Series 5, and 12-inch MacBook values increased by up to $5.

Some older Apple devices saw their trade-in values decrease by up to $10, such as the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus, while Android smartphone values declined more steeply. Mac Studio values decreased by up to $75 following the launch of the second-generation model with M2 Max and M2 Ultra chips earlier this month.

Trade-ins can be completed on Apple's website or at an Apple retail store, and the credit can be applied to the purchase of a new Apple product or placed on an Apple gift card. Apple's trade-in page offers a complete list of values for devices.

Apple is the LAST place anyone should trade in anything.
Why? Other mail in sites have a long history of scamming people, eBay is frought with rip offs, Craigslist will get you mugged, etc.

Traded my 2017 MBP dumpster fire to Apple at well above the going rate elsewhere... granted the going rate for intel butterfly models is zero on the best day.

For the extra $100 or so dollars you get trying to sell, it is not worth the hassle anymore.

It really doesn't have to be that much of an ordeal. I don't do eBay or any kind of shipping. But you can list something on Craigslist, OfferUp, or Facebook Marketplace for local pickup only. You meet at a coffee shop where no one's going to get mugged.
Or a police station. I've done that.

Except if you have a very scratched phone which would be hard to sell (I got $530, full price, for my heavily scratched iPhone 13 Pro)

Not the highest value, but the least stressful and worth the difference in price IMO.
