Apple GiveBack is what the company now calls its rebranded reuse and recycling trade-in program. It has updated that program to offer customers trading-in old devices with instant credit which they can immediately use to offset the cost of a new product that they’re purchasing online. It’s a departure from the earlier practice which had customers shipping their device first.
The only way that customers could immediately get credit to use for a new purchase under this program previously was to visit an Apple Store location. Customers who opted for online trade-ins were required to ship their device to Apple first after which they would be given an Apple gift card or debit card with the trade-in value.
Apple’s website has been^( to reflect the change. Customers can now get an instant credit for trading in an old device and will be able to use that credit immediately to purchase a new device online. The trade-in value can be put towards the purchase of a new iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple Watch.
The newest devices Apple is currently accepting for GiveBack include the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. It may soon start offering trade-in values for the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and the iPhone X as well.
