    Apple today updated its Apple Store app to version 5.3, introducing a redesigned Sessions tab at the bottom of the app that houses dozens of new Today at Apple sessions that Apple users can sign up to attend.

    Apple says that it's also now easier to check the trade-in values of your devices when using the Apple Store app.

    You'll see trade-in options when purchasing a new iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple Watch, and Apple will give you a list of your current devices where you're signed in with your Apple ID and their trade-in value.

    You can tap one, go through Apple's status checklist, and then finish the trade-in process right when checking out.

    The splash screen when starting the app after installing the new update also says that returns have been streamlined with options to track the progress of your order, initiate a return, or print a return label directly from the Apple Store app.

    The Apple Store app can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

    It says up to $1100...I don’t think that’s a good deal for my late 2015 iMac...:confused:

    Trade ins are so stupid and undervalued by Apple. Just sell your device yourself and get a better deal.

    Wow, it just keeps getting better!

    I wonder what's in store tomorrow. Maybe Pages app updated with bug fixes and performance improvements.

    But that's so difficult and requires 30 minutes of time on eBay and 30 minutes to drop off at the shipping center!

    Pretty sure there have been thousands of days without hardware releases.

    Or it's lost elsewhere (if it was there to begin with).

    The stupid thing about this app is that it has always required a relatively recent version of iOS.

    Just think about that for a moment: you're using some older hardware, and decide you want to trade 'up'; only to find that Apple has dropped support for your device in its shopping app.
    Not only is it a catch-22 situation, but it doesn't show the longlivity of the products in a good light.
