Need a new Apple iPad? You can trade in your old iPad for up to $285 in credit

Yesterday, Apple announced a brand new tablet that’s simply called the “new 9.7-inch iPad.” Succeeding the 9.7-inch iPad of 2017, the new iPad comes with Apple Pencil support, and is already available to buy in the US - prices start at $329 (32 GB, Wi-Fi-only) and go up to $559 (128 GB, Wi-Fi + Cellular). 

What you may not know is that, if you own an older iPad, you can trade it in and receive credit towards purchasing a new model. You can get a maximum of $285 in credit, but that’s only if you’re trading up an iPad Pro in “excellent condition.” Of course, if you have the time to sell your iPad Pro, instead of trading it in, you'll almost certainly get way more than $285 for it. Other older iPad models can be traded for less, as you can see in this image: 

It looks like the iPad trade up program is available not just for the new 9.7-inch iPad, but also for the iPad Pro. However, the iPad Mini 4 doesn’t seem to be included here. Trade ins can be made both in Apple Stores nationwide, and online - for more details, check out Apple’s website via the source link below.

$285 trade-in value for any version of the iPad Pro is criminal. Be smart & sell your device to a friend or online.

No one. You can trade in any of the iPad models they mentioned for any iPad currently available for sale, not just the new one.

Ok but how many for an iPad mini 1st Gen maybe 30$? If they give 150$ it's a deal! But if the 285 for an iPad pro 9,7 256gb it's nonsense......
