    Has anyone made use of the official Apple trade in program of their iphone ?
    I'm thinking to avail of it, but I'm wondering a few things.

    Do you need a genius appointment or can you just walk in ?
    Do you need to bring the charger, haedphones and box back - or do they only want the phone itself ?
    Can you do the deal on the spot or they want to keep your phone for testing overnight or anything ?

    No appointment needed. Walk-in is fine. Not box or accessories either, just the device. Lastly, they will test it on the spot. Make sure there is no damage, buttons work, water sensors are not tripped and iCloud Activation Lock is deactivated.

    Great good to know!

    Depends which country you are in. Search 'apple trade up iphone' and your country and you should find it

    I'm in Ontario Canada and you can just walk accessories needed.

    But, if you want an apple card/store credit you will have to send it away to the affiliate company who does the processing etc. they will set all this up in the store for you. I know this because I just received my shipping box and shipped my iPhone 6+ out to the company yesterday.

    If you want to apply the credit directly to a new phone on the spot you don't have to send it away...they will do it directly in store. its only if you want a credit that you have to send it away.

    Thankx 3lions. I am planning direct trade in versus new phone. Decided to sell my ipad and trade in iphone 6s for an iphone 7 plus :)
