Apple is announcing new iPhones next week. You may not have enough money on hand to get one at launch. There’s a way to alleviate that.
With Apple’s big event just days away, it’s probably prudent to find out the estimated trade-in value of your current iPhone (or Apple Watch, or any other product that gets refreshed at the event) in the case that you want to, you know, get a new one.
Thankfully, that couldn’t be easier to do. Apple’s official trade-in website provides a full list of trade-in values for its devices.
Apple iPhone trade-in value list
iPhone 13 Pro Max: Up to $640iPhone 13 Pro: Up to $530iPhone 13: Up to $420iPhone 13 mini: Up to $330iPhone SE (3rd generation): Up to $160iPhone 12 Pro Max: Up to $460iPhone 12 Pro: Up to $360iPhone 12: Up to $300iPhone 12 mini: Up to $200iPhone SE (2nd generation): Up to $90iPhone 11 Pro Max: Up to $300iPhone 11 Pro: Up to $250iPhone 11: Up to $200iPhone XS Max: Up to $200iPhone XS: Up to $150iPhone XR: Up to $150iPhone X: Up to $120iPhone 8 Plus: Up to $90iPhone 8: Up to $70iPhone 7 Plus: Up to $50iPhone 7: Up to $40
Of course, there are caveats to this. First, iPhone 14 trade-in values are not part of this list yet. And even new-ish iPhones will only get you so much, as the site lists the iPhone 13 Pro Max as having an estimated trade-in value of $640. It goes all the way back to the iPhone 7, which clocks in at a rousing $40. And yes, these are technically estimates; you could go to an Apple Store and theoretically get less than is listed here.
Point being, though, that you can at least get an idea of how much the iPhone 15 will run you with a viable trade-in. Given how much phones cost these days, that never hurts.
