Every once in a while, Apple offers a slight boost to its trade-in values, hoping to boost sales for new products. Or, in some cases, to line up with something like American Heart Month. That's the case for trade-in values tied to the company's smartwatch lineup.
Apple Watch Series 2
If you have an older Series model of the Apple Watch and have your eyes set on the Series 5, now might be a good time to trade it in for the newer model.
Last week, Apple released iOS 13. And then, earlier this week, Apple released iOS 13.1. However, while the new software is supported on a wide range of older devices, not all of Apple's aging hardware can support the new software.
If you own an Apple Watch Series 2 or Series 3 of the aluminum variety, and you've run into an issue with a cracked screen, then Apple may have a program for you.
Some Apple Watch models over time may develop swollen or expanded batteries, especially older models such as the original Apple Watch and Apple Watch Series 1 and 2.
eBay is the Wild West of shopping. There are some rules, but mostly its a wasteland of objects and you can call in the Marshall, to continue my terrible pun, if you need to report someone or get your money back. It is not as bad as Craigslist. I generally stay away from both.
However, my desire for a shiny white Apple Watch Edition and my unwillingness to pay $1,350 for a new one, drove me into the world's largest yard sale, eBay. After purchasing the Apple Watch Edition Series 2, it was a full three weeks before I was able to use it, thanks to the disaster that is Apple Authentication Lock. The saga has me swearing to never order a used Apple device again.

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are “precision‑engineered to resist water and dust,” in Apple's own words, as is the flagship iPhone X model, but the company has not increased water resistance of the new phones as some were hoping it would.
Apple on Monday seeded seventh betas of iOS 11, macOS High Sierra 10.13, watchOS 4 and tvOS 11 to developers.
Apple on Friday published a new commercial for Apple Watch Series 2 via its YouTube channel. Titled “Live Bright” and running one minute and fourteen seconds long, the video takes viewers on a quick tour of some of the best new features of Apple's second-generation wearable device, including built-in GPS, water resistance to 50 meters, a dual-core S2 chip “and a display that’s two times brighter than before”.
