For the month of June, Apple is giving a small boost to its trade-in price values for the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and iPhone 5S, according to Apple Store sources. Using the Reuse and Recycle program, a customer can bring in an older iPhone model and receive gift card credit toward the purchase of a newer iPhone. Likely in order to spur some new iPhone sales this month, Apple is offering the following improvements to its trade-in pricing:
– iPhone 4S: $50 of credit instead of $35
– iPhone 5: $100 of credit instead of $85
– iPhone 5S: $200 of credit instead of $175
Unsurprisingly, the still-on-sale iPhone 5S gets the biggest value boost this month as Apple can likely re-use and recycle some of the parts for refurbished units. This month’s change is only available in the United States. For those with non-iPhones, Apple recently debuted a version of the program for you.
These prices will fluctuate based on the condition of your iPhone, but they should be higher regardless in comparison to previous months. However, they are still not as aggressive as current offers from Amazon‘s trade-in program, so it is worth comparing to find the best value.
