Apple has lowered trade-in values across the board for iPhone, now offering customers a maximum of $349 when trading in an iPhone without purchasing a new model at the same time.
Previously, Apple offered a maximum of $500 when directly trading-in an iPhone through its trade-in website, though as reported by MacRumors, the company has seemingly tightened its purse strings, offering customers a maximum of $349 for an iPhone X, compared to a $500 credit value offered to customers looking to trade-in the same device just a couple of weeks ago.
Apple looks to be saving the best deals for customers wanting to trade-in their old iPhone and purchase a new device at the same time. Apple’s online trade-in tool shows that customers with an iPhone X can receive a maximum of $450 when purchasing a new iPhone… still a lower value than before, but more than if the device was sold to Apple without the purchase of a new handset.
The refreshed trade-in pricing structure means customers are bound to find much better deals elsewhere.
iPhone trade-in programs continue to be heavily pushed online and at Apple retail stores across the world. Last week, Apple released a new ‘Do One Last Great Thing With It’ ad that pushed the scheme.
