Looking into upgrading your iPad or just want to know what your current tablet is worth? Read on for how to check your iPad trade-in value and make sure you get the best price possible.

There are a variety of ways to trade-in your current iPad for a credit towards a new one. Most trade-in programs do require a new purchase. However, some may not, but you may not get quite as much as the trade-in options if you’re picking up a new iPad.

Here are some great options to make sure you’re getting the most for your iPad trade-in.

How to check your iPad trade-in value

  1. Head to Apple’s GiveBack webpage
  2. Scroll down, select Tablet and enter your iPad details
  3. Once you have a quote, you can trade-in online via mail, or head to an Apple Store
  4. Also get a quote from our partner MyPhones Unlimited
  5. Other good options include Gazelle, your carrier, and eBay

Here’s how the process looks with Apple:

Trade-ins through Apple are only good for a gift card, but you can hold on to it and use it anytime in the future if you don’t want to spend it immediately.

The same trade-in values are applicable at Apple Stores if you’d like to do it in person.
