Apple Starts Accepting, iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, SE Trade-ups – Here Are The Details


Apple has just updated its iPhone Trade-up Program and is now accepting iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone SE models against store credit.

Apple Will Pay You up to $315 for an iPhone 6s Plus, but It's Not the Best Route You Can Take

Apple has been running its iPhone Trade-up Program for a long time. After releasing the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus just last week, said program has been updated to accept iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, SE models. What this means is that Apple will give you up to $315 in store credit so you can buy yourself a new iPhone.

Furthermore, since new iPhones are out, therefore older models are seeing a downgrade in trade-in price as well. So instead of getting the usual $225 and $250 for the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, you'll end up getting just $200 and $225. Lastly, the iPhone 4s is no longer eligible for trade-in while every other iPhone is also seeing a lower estimate in price.

See the chart below and you'll get an idea how much credit Apple will give you for your iPhone. And remember, this is the maximum amount of money you can get, if you have a damaged phone then you'll get something far less compared to what is written below.

If you're seeking for personal advice, the iPhone Trade-up Program is not the best route to take if you're looking to sell your old iPhone, or any smartphone for that matter. While Apple will instantly give you store credit to be utilized in your next iPhone purchase, but quite frankly, the value is far too low. You're better off selling your smartphone online using third-party services instead. But of course, utilizing third-party services instantly means you'll have to go through several hurdles, with time and frustration being one of them.

Wrap Up

At the end of the day it's entirely your call whether or not you want to knock on Apple's door or turn your stern towards a site like eBay. If you have zero patience and just want to get rid of your phone to grab a new one, then Apple is the way to go. And if you believe your phone is worth way more than what Apple is advertising on its website, then go ahead and put your phone up for sale on eBay. Craigslist etc.
