It goes on to help the planet.

You may be done with your device, but chances are it still has more to give. If it’s in good shape, we’ll help it go to a new owner, diverting electronic waste from landfill. If not, we’ll send it to our recycling partner, so we can save more precious materials and take less from the Earth.

And if it’s an iPhone, it could even go to Daisy, our disassembly robot that can efficiently recover the resources inside.

It’s our trade-in and recycling programme that’s good for you and the planet.

We work with trade-in partners who give you an estimated value based on the device information you provide. If you accept the quote, our partner will arrange a courier to pick up your device (at no cost to you).

Our partner will inspect your device and if it is in the condition stated, you’ll receive a payment for the quoted amount. If the device is not in the stated condition, our partner will send you a new quote. You can either accept the new quote or have your device sent back (at no cost to you).

If it’s not eligible for credit, you can recycle it for free.

Yes. You can recycle any Apple device (including devices from Apple-owned brands) at any Apple Store and on for free. That includes your batteries and old electronic products as well as free, on-demand packaging recycling for our commercial, education and institutional customers. Whether recycled or reused, all activities relating to the processing of your device will be managed in an environmentally responsible way.

When we receive your device, our partners will thoroughly inspect it. If the device is in good working condition, it can be refurbished so it can go on to a new owner. If it’s not in working order, it will be recycled in an environmentally responsible way through one of our partners.

The entire trade-in process depends on our trade-in partners but usually takes about two to three weeks. But the faster you send in your device, the sooner your trade-in will be inspected and processed.

You can follow the status of your trade-in by using our trade-in partner’s status portal.

Our trade-in partner will inspect your device. If it’s in the condition described, you will receive a payment of the quoted value. If it’s not in the condition described, a new quote will be sent to you. You will have the option to either accept this quote and receive a payment, or reject it and have your device sent back to you for free.

You can trade in Apple and third-party devices. Many Apple and third-party devices are eligible for a trade-in refund. And all Apple devices are eligible for recycling. Either way, hand us your used devices and we will handle them responsibly.

If the courier hasn’t picked up your device yet, you can cancel your trade-in by following the link in the confirmation email. If your device has already been picked up, the trade-in can’t be cancelled unless you receive a new trade-in value after the inspection of your device, which you can then choose to reject.
No, you do not need to include accessories. If you choose to include any, we will recycle them for you.
You can only trade in online. Recycling your used devices is available in all our retail stores as well as online.
You can trade in as many devices as you like but we accept only one device per transaction.
Once you fill out your trade-in information with our trade-in partner and verify your email, you can arrange for pick-up of your device or ask them to send you a trade-in kit. The kit includes instructions on how to prepare, pack and ship your device.

Devices that contain batteries should be packed in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and industry best practices, which typically include the guidelines below:

  • Discharge the unit to less than 30 per cent.
  • Do not ship electronics that are disassembled into parts.
  • Do not ship electronics with swollen or damaged batteries.
  • For whole units, surround the product with at least 6 centimetres of suitable filler material, such as recycled or reused packaging, on all sides before placing inside a corrugated box.
  • Ship only one device per box.
It will be issued within two weeks of shipping your device via bank transfer.
To find your serial number, follow this guide.
Your personal information will be completely wiped from your device, so make sure to back up your data before you send it in.
