    To show that it cares for the environment, Apple has expanded its Reuse & Recycling program to include the iPad, as well. Now you can go at any Apple Retail Store location and receive credit for your aging iPad. In the past, Apple customers could only receive trade-in credit for iPhones. Another improvement is that now iPhone or iPad trade-in credit can be used on cross products. So, you can trade-in an eligible iPhone or iPad and use the money to buy a different product. In the past, you had to use the money for an iPhone trade-in to buy a new iPhone, as well.



    At the moment, we don’t know exactly if Apple’s offer could be better or at least on par with other service, such as Gazelle. But most likely than not, if we are to judge from the iPhone trade-in program, you won’t necessarily get more money, but the process of trading your old iDevice will be performed much faster. Also, what you need to know is that, unlike iPhones, Apple won’t accept an iPad with a cracked screen.


    Just like the iPhone trade-in program gradually rolled out to other countries besides USA and Canada, this could be the same with iPads. Even if your iPad or iPhone isn’t eligible for trade-in credit, Apple will still responsibly recycle it.

    when i tried to use the iPhone trade in at the apple store, the value was worse then selling the iPhone 3g privately, and thats what i did, sell it private. The phone was good and there was no need for it to be recycled (destroyed), but sold on as 2nd hand

    As long as the program is fair people will take advantage of it. Seems like a good idea.

    I'd be willing to bet money they will offer less than other vendors.
