Here's how to do it?
The customers just need to answer a few questions regarding the brand, model, and condition of the device, and based on these questions, Apple will find out the estimated trade-in value. Apple will then take your device and out the value based on the condition on a Gift Card that you can use anytime.
You can trade-in an eligible device either in a store or online. If you choose to go in the store, Apple will give you instant credit toward a purchase or a Gift Card you can use anytime. And, if you go for the online medium, you have to send your old eligible device to Apple in case you purchase a new Apple product. Once it receives your device, it will inspect it and verify its conditions and set a trade-in value. Apple will credit your original purchase method and send you any remaining balance on an Apple Gift Card by email. Also, if you choose to trade-in your old device online for a Gift Card, Apple will send you a Gift Card.
If you’re an Android user and your device is not mentioned in the list of phones eligible for Apple’s trade-in program then you can send your device to Apple for recycling and participate in making the environment greener.
