Instead of only allowing customers to trade-in old Macs online, Apple now supports device trade-ins at their retail locations.

As predicted last week, Apple now allows old Mac computers to be traded in at the company’s retail locations rather than only online. The news comes from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, and Apple later confirmed it.


The company website now states that “Yes, the Apple Trade In program is available on as well as in all our retail stores” while also warning that customers should “keep in mind that the trade-in credit you get in the store may be different from the estimated trade-in value you received online.”


Basically, if someone trades in their computer at a store (or online), they will get credits to use towards their next Apple purchase; if an item is not eligible for credit, the company will recycle it for free.

This change adds Mac computers to the list of devices that can be traded-in in stores alongside mobile tech like iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches.

Unfortunately, not many customers will be able to benefit from the change just yet, as many Apple stores across the U.S. are still closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. NVG
