Apple Increases Trade-In Values For Older iPhones
If you're planning to trade your iPhone to upgrade for the latest iPhone 14, then you might get better value today than before. Apple is now offering higher estimates for most of the dated iPhones, iPad, and other hardware products if you trade in with them. Here's how much you'll be getting with Apple's latest maximum trade-in rates.
Apple has been adjusting the trade-in values of the iPhones and its other hardware more frequently. The good thing is that not all changes it has made mean lower trading values. Apparently, they're even giving higher estimates for dated iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks in its most recent adjustment.
On the company's trade-in page, it is now offering last year's iPhone 13 Pro Max (review) with up to $630 trade-in value, which is a $30 increase from $600 previously. This is a drastic drop considering the top-end configuration of the model was priced $1599 last year.
The movement in rates reflects in other regions and countries as well. For instance, in Germany, the increase is much higher with the same iPhone model fetching €735, up 7 percent from the previous exchange rate of €685. In the UK, there was also a hike but very minimal at £10.
The following are Apple's trade-in values as of May 5, 2023:

As usual, the final given value will depend on the device's status. Apple will need to factor in the cosmetic state and usability of the hardware.
