Other than Android phones, Apple has also readjusted the value of certain iPad and Mac models. Scroll down to read more details on the subject.

Apple Has Lowered the Value of Your Android Phone for iPhone Trade-In

Apple displays the highest possible value on its website that a user will get for the trade-in Apple device. These devices include the iPhone, Apple Watch, Mac, or the iPad. However, the final trade-in value will depend on several factors such as the condition of the device. Today, Apple has seen fit to deduct the trade-in amount for Android phones. Some deductions might be greater than others and we are not sure how Apple classifies the devices.
