Can you trade in an iphone 6 for an iphone xr

Whether you’re making a purchase or not, we’ve made it easy to trade in an eligible device either in a store or online. Just answer a few questions regarding the brand, model, and condition of your device. We’ll provide an estimated trade-in value or a simple way to recycle it.

If you accept the trade-in estimate in the store, we’ll give you instant credit toward a purchase or a gift card you can use anytime.

If you accept the trade-in estimate online when you purchase a new Mac, iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, we’ll arrange for you to send us your current device. Once we receive it, we’ll inspect it and verify its condition. If everything checks out, we’ll credit your original purchase method and send you any remaining balance on an Apple Gift Card via email.

If you choose to trade in your current device online for a gift card, we’ll also arrange for you to send it to us. When everything checks out, we’ll send you an Apple Gift Card via email.

Regardless of how you choose to trade in, if the condition of your device doesn’t match what you described, a new estimated trade-in value will be provided. You’ll have the option to either accept this revised quote or reject it. If you reject it, your device will be returned to you at no charge.

You might want to consider upgrading your iPhone now if you’ve been on the fence about buying a new iPhone XR or iPhone XS.

Ahead of the holidays — an important quarter for Apple sales — Apple increased the amount of credit it’s willing to offer customers who are trading in older iPhones toward the purchase of the new models it launched this year.

It might even help boost sales of the iPhone XR. Rumors of weak demand for that device have continued over the last several weeks after Apple suppliers cut revenue forecasts.

Apple typically offers $75 toward the price of a new iPhone if you trade in your iPhone 6. With its current promotion, however, Apple now offers $150 if you trade in an iPhone 6 for a new iPhone XR or iPhone XS. The offer applies to other phones too.

Apple will give you a $200 credit if you trade in the iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 6s, twice what it normally offers. It’s offering a credit of $75 more than usual for the iPhone 7 ($250 total) and a $300 credit for the iPhone 7 Plus or iPhone 8 ($50 and $25 more than usual, respectively.)

This isn’t a whole lot of money for those devices, but it takes the headache out of trying to sell and ship a phone yourself. If you want to sell a device for cash instead of a trade-in value, consider sites that let you list a product and set your own price, like eBay, Swappa or Craigslist. Make sure you have everything, including a box and charger, to get the most out of your sale.

Also, keep in mind that the amount Apple will credit you for a trade-in will depend on the condition of your current iPhone. If it has a cracked screen, for example, expect to get less than the full trade-in amount. You can see what your device is worth and learn more on Apple’s trade-in site.

Simplify the process with the Verizon trade-in program.

If you’re choosing to trade in your device, start here with Verizon’s device trade-in tool. Once there, you’ll be led through a series of questions and prompts that will be used to estimate your device’s trade-in value, such as the model, its color, how much storage it has and what network you use. You’ll also have to evaluate the quality of the device. Is it in fairly good shape, or is it damaged? We all know if the device is well-used and well-loved, there could be some damage, but to what degree? You’ll be asked if the phone turns on and off, if the battery is damaged, and if the screen is cracked or broken. 

Verizon then quickly assesses the value of your phone and gives you a trade-in estimate. (Remember, it’s an estimate. The final value is ultimately determined when Verizon receives and inspects your device.) After submitting your device to the program, you’ll see if you’re eligible for any promotions, such as account credit or a Verizon eGift card that can be used toward your next device purchase — or even toward your bill. Also be sure to check frequently for trade-in promos that run throughout the year. Promotions change often, and some promotions can offer a much higher value for your trade-in or additional credit back. 

Check the Verizon deals page for a list of all our current promotions. Whether you’re looking for a great value on your device trade-in or simply looking for any deals on a new device, our deals page will keep you in the loop and up to date on our latest promotions and offers.

For any questions about the process along the way, our live online help tool is always available. If you’re interested in talking with someone in person, you can always schedule an appointment with a Sales Associate in a Verizon store.
