Apple Cuts Recycling Prices for Used iPhones, iPads, and Macs

Yesterday, Apple quietly reduced almost all of the largest estimated recycling prices of used iPhones, iPads, Macs, and Apple Watches.

For example, yesterday Apple’s official website also showed that the iPhone XS Max’s trade-in price is estimated to be as high as $600. But today, Apple only offers $500, a full $100 less. The only devices that haven’t been reduced are the MacBook Pro, Mac Pro, Mac mini, and Apple Watch series 1, 2 and 3 generations.

The price adjustment involves the United States, China, the United Kingdom, Germany and other markets.

Apple has aggressively promoted its ‘iPhone’ trade-in program in its retail stores and websites. And the company’s CEO Tim Cook recently claimed that this promotion is becoming more effective. He said that one third or more customers patronize their retail stores and eventually replace old equipment with new equipment.

The following is the latest recycling prices of used Apple equipment in the United States. The original price is in brackets:
