Apple Offers, Trade In Your Old iPad 2 In Exchange For A Gift Card Of Up To $320
Good deal with your older one, Apple with the new, improved Retina-ready iPad set to hit the retailer shelves around the world in less than two more days, may would imagine that there are several gadget fans out there who are currently sitting on their iPad 2 which they want to get rid off in order to get the latest new iPad. Knowing that the iPad 2 will be no longer be the current model, owners will inevitably want to replace it.
Many iPad 2 owners have already managed to sell them to cash out early, way before the new iPad was actually announced and also managed to get some fairly decent price for it through secondary sales channel. But some didn’t do that!
Know worry, Apple has updated its Reuse and Recycling program to include trade in values for the iPad 2. The program offers Apple Store gift cards in exchange for your old iPhones, iPads and Macs, and now includes values for laste year’s tablet. Actually, when Apple took to the stage in San Francisco to announce the new iPad, they also announced price cuts for the existing iPad 2 model, meaning consumers can pick up a brand spanking new one from Apple Stores for a snip of its original price.
The Apple’s Reuse and Recycling program allows Apple product owners to exchange the item in return for gist cards that can be used to purchase Apple newer goods. The program covers iPhones, the original iPad and Macs but with the latest update, the program now has immediate coverage for all iPad 2 models. The program works in exactly the same way as other recycling and trade-in programs, which is to take details about the model and condition of the product and then produce a value based on that information.
The Next Web are reporting that the top of the range iPad 2 model, in fully functional and working order could net owners up to a maximum of $320 which appears to fall in line with other services of the same nature. They have also included some recycling pricing points for the other various iPad 2 models:
o Apple iPad 2 16GB WiFi $205
o Apple iPad 2 16GB WiFi + 3G $250
o Apple iPad 2 32 GB WiFi $245
o Apple iPad 2 32GB WiFi + 3G $280
o Apple iPad 2 64GB WiFi $275
o Apple iPad 2 64GB WiFi + 3G $320
These values are based on ‘perfect condition’ iPads with no scuffing, engraving and functional batteries that are shipped along with a power cord and wiped of data. Water damage, cracks and wear all affect the value that Apple will give.
The service is also being extended by Apple to be available in additional countries and I can confirm that the United Kingdom version has been updated and is functional. Although, the price offered by Apple for a top of the range model iPad 2 in England is not likely to make people want to part with their device.
If you’re one of those have an iPad 2 which you’d like to part with, then head on over to Reuse and Recycle page from here and see what Apple will offer you.
