Apple Trade In is one of the best ways to trade in your old device, and every year, Apple waits until the newest iPhone models are announced before accepting models from the previous year. Apple just added iPhone 12 models to the trade in program.

Prices are as follows:

  • iPhone 12 Mini: Up to $400
  • iPhone 12: Up to $530
  • iPhone 12 Pro: Up to $640
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max: Up to $790

While Apple Trade In doesn’t always offer the top values for older phones, they do tend to be the most forgiving about hitting all the requirements for being in “good condition”. Their requirements are as follows:

Good condition (max value) if all of the following apply:

  • It turns on and functions normally
  • All the buttons work
  • The cameras work
  • The body is free of dents and scratches
  • The touchscreen and back glass are undamaged

Some other trade in sites might have higher requirements to qualify for various tiers of condition, although Apple’s “good condition” requirements are generally similar to those from others like Decluttr, MyPhones Unlimited, and Gazelle.
