    Apple Store iPhone Trade-in yearly vs two year

    I usually upgrade each year but I'm starting to look at the price difference between yearly and two-year upgrades. Apple Store Price If I had traded in my 14 Pro 128GB it would've been $429 and with tax $456 If I had traded in my 13 Pro 128GB it would've been $519 and with tax $552

    iPhone 15/Plus Am I being overtaxed by Apple

    I’ve noticed a change to Apple Trade-In policies in Canada. In the past, when I received a trade-in refund, it consisted of the promised trade-in value plus tax. The effect was that I only paid tax on the net cost of the device, not the full retail price. This year I only received the promised...

    iPhone 14 Pro Max Cannot Trade in current models ?

    Hi Folks, For as long as I can remember, every year I trade in my current phone directly with apple just before the new ones are released. This year, it says that apple are not allowing trade in of the current models. They only allow trade in up to the 13 series phones. Any reason why this is...

    iPhone 14/Plus Best Buy Trade In - Good as previous years? Verizon

    I bought my iPhone 12 Pro from Best Buy when it launched. They price-matched Verizon’s advertised trade in for my XS ($800-1000, don’t remember the actual value), and instead of doing 24 month bill credits, I got the trade in value taken off the price of the phone then and there, and put the...

    Other Trade in question

    So I'm wanting to trade in my iPhone 12 to get credit and then finance an iPhone 14 Pro. I have a very minor crack on the screen that I'm getting repaired tomorrow (I still have AppleCare so it won't be much).

    iPhone 13 Pro Max UK trade in?

    It’s that time of year again and it’s time to trade in our iPhones (if you’re upgrading). I am just curious where everybody trades their iPhones in? I usually use music magpie but after some trouble last year I am reluctant to do that again. Good luck with your new iPhone preorders!

    Carrier Has ATT Changed Their Trade-In Promos?

    Like many here, I am getting ready to upgrade when the new iPhones 14 come out. For the past two years, I have alternated upgrades between eligible lines on my plan. Essentially, I have made down payments at the time of purchase, that, when combined with the monthly credits that ATT offers...

    Other Carrier Pricing vs Apple Pricing for Yearly Upgrades. What is the Math long term?

    So in 2021 the carriers gave customers $1000 or so off of an iPhone Pro. It is in monthly installments so about half of the iPhones are paid for by the time a new iPhone comes out. At that point a customer could switch carriers and get the next iPhone for free, presumably. Meanwhile Apple has a...

    Carrier Issues receiving Verizon bill credits after iPhone 13 Pro upgrade

    I'm not really sure where to turn at this point... I preordered the 128GB iPhone 13 Pro (two of them, actually) on day one of pre-orders. My wife and I traded in our iPhone XR's in the process. Being a bit of a skeptic, I actually screen-recorded the entire process (purchased through the Apple...
