How to find the estimated value of your device with Apple GiveBack

Apple GiveBack Trade-In Value

Many times, when we upgrade our iPhone, we trade in our current one to Apple or our cell phone provider. But what if you receive a new iPhone as gift? Now you have your old and new one.

Other times, we simply buy a new product to upgrade like the newest Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac. Again, now you have the old and new device.

Do you want to try and sell your older device? How much should you ask for it? What is it worth?

Apple has a convenient way for you to get estimated value of your device. Plus, Apple gives you options for what to do with your old devices.

Here’s how to find the estimated value of your devices with Apple GiveBack.
