    What are the advantages of the apple reuse programme compared to selling yourself?

    You trade it in to offset the cost of a new purchase. It will be less then if you sell it outright.

    Convenience in exchange for a lower cost

    I looked at selling my iPhone 5 to them to help fund my iPhone 5s and to be honest they were not the best deal.

    Unless you need the cash very quickly or you don't have much time to sell,

    avoid Apple programme like the plague, it's absolutely useless

    Considering you purchase the product at the high end, apple will only give you what it probably ACTUALLY cost to make lol

    Where Apple has these programmes, you know that the buyer won't try to cheat you out of your money, but you won't get as much as selling yourself (but again, the highest bidder might very well be a cheat not intending to ever pay you). And it's more convenient.

    Definitely a convenience factor, plus I wonder how many typical consumers actually sell their iPhones. This will give them an avenue to get a little money instead of having an old phone sitting in a desk drawer

    The Apple program is convenient, but you get more selling it yourself.

    So you would need to weigh hassle-free exchange versus hassles of self sale including unscrupulous buyers.

    I can only speak for the UK but most Exchange places like CEX offer a better trade in value than Apple so you can get more elsewhere with little risk.

    Exactly what I did.

    Apple offered £180

    CEX gave £250
