After the recent announcement of the HomePod and the new M2 MacBook Pro, as MacRumors points out, Apple has quietly tweaked the trade-in values ​​it offers its own devices. In the U.S., iPhone models are often worth less now than they used to be. For example, if you’re planning to swap out your iPhone 13 Pro Max anytime soon, Apple says it will offer up to $570 towards the purchase of a new device. Until then, you can score as much as $650 off the company’s 2021 flagship. Other iPhone 13 models have similarly dropped in value. Starting this week, the iPhone 13 Pro will set you back $470 on your new purchase, down from the $550 you’d previously expect. Meanwhile, iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini trade-in values ​​now top out at $400 and $350, down from $450 and $380, respectively.

Not every iPhone has a drop in trade-in value. For example, you can trade in an iPhone 11 for up to $200, just like it was before this week. This is true even for older models like the iPhone X and iPhone 8. The value of an iPad trade-in hasn’t dropped, either. Take the iPad Pro to your nearest Apple store, and the company will set you back a whopping $445. Interestingly, Apple is now offering more deals on most Mac trade-ins. Specifically, an old MacBook Pro model can now set you back $670 for your next purchase, up from $630 before, while you can expect an old MacBook Air for $460, up from $440. You can find a full list of trade-in values ​​on Apple’s website.
