Have you been checking iPhone 13 price recently with the intention to buy? Well, heads-up! If you are planning to buy an iPhone 13 by trading-in your old smartphone then you should think again. This is because, Apple has reduced the estimated dollar amount of trading value for several Android smartphones which means you will receive considerably less money even for your flagship Android phone. And it's not about the budget phones but the premium ones such as Samsung Galaxy S21 and the Google Pixel 5. Well, there is no bias towards Apple users! The trade-in value for certain iPad and Mac models has also been dropped.

Apple listed the maximum amount a consumer can receive when trading in a device for an Apple product, such as an iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple Watch, on its website. The mentioned trade-in values are simply indicative of the highest possible value that you will receive for your old Android or Apple device. The final trade-in value can only be determined during the time of purchase by some predetermined factors such as the device's condition or year of purchase.

So, there is no point in trading an old smartphone for a spanking new iPhone 13?

It depends on you. Whether you are satisfied with the amount that you are receiving while exchanging it with the cost of the new Apple smartphone, iPhone 13 or any other iPhone model. But one thing is for sure, you won't be able to get the amount that you would have got earlier.

How far have the rates fallen?

Massively! With the new trade-in iPhone prices, the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G now has a trade-in value of $260 which was earlier $325. Even the Galaxy S21+ 5G has seen a drastic drop in the trade-in value which has been changed to $325, as opposed to the earlier value of $435. While the trade-in price for the baseline iPad has been changed to $200 from $205 and iPad Air dropped from $345 to $335.

But if you are owning a Pixel 3a, the Galaxy S8 or its S8+ then will get the same amount of trade-in as before, which remained unchanged at $50, $50, and $60 respectively. Though, you need to note here that, Apple showed the maximum value of trade-in while exchanging the value will depend on the condition of your device. To know how much your Android, iPhone, iPad, Mac, or other devices will have the trade-in value while buying a new iPhone or Apple product, check the list here.
