It seems that Apple really wants its customers to buy its new iPhones because according to a report from MacRumors, it looks like Apple is offering up customers more credit when they trade in an older iPhone and are looking to get either the iPhone XR or the iPhone Xs. Note that this is a limited time offer so you might want to move fast.
According to Apple’s trade-in website, those with an iPhone 6 can get up to $150 when trading in their handset. Previously the amount offered to iPhone 6 owners was $75, so this is double that amount. This seems to be the case for the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s, where the original value was at $100 but they are now being offered $200.
That being said, it seems that the most Apple will be offering customers is $300, and oddly enough there is no mention of the iPhone X on the list, with the latest iPhone Apple is accepting is the iPhone 8 which will give customers $300 in trade-in credit (original value was $275). Granted for the most part this won’t reduce the prices by too much and that trading in the iPhone 8 for the iPhone Xs means it will still cost around $700, but we suppose every little bit helps, right?
