The iPhone 7 is worth more for Google than for Apple when it comes to trade-ins

Apple can give you up to $375 for an iPhone 7 (Plus)

Like other relevant phone vendors, Google allows customers to trade in old devices for its latest and greatest handsets - in this case, we're talking about the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. While checking out Google's current trade-in offers, we've discovered an interesting thing - the company is offering more for an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus than Apple will give you for the two handsets via its own trade-in program.   


When you trade in an iPhone 7 for a Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL (via Google Store), you can get up to $360 in credit, while an iPhone 7 Plus is worth up to $388. At Apple, if you want to trade in your iPhone 7 for an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, you can only get up to $325, while trading in an iPhone 7 Plus will net you up to $375.


Those "up to" figures are offered by Google and Apple only for the 256 GB versions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, assuming they're in good condition. Handsets with less internal memory, or phones that are even slightly damaged, are obviously worth less.


Of course, Google will be more than happy to see iPhone 7 users switching to a new Pixel, and perhaps that's why its trade-in offer is more advantageous than Apple's. At the same time, it's not like Apple doesn't want iPhone 7 owners to buy an iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus, especially since both models are a bit more expensive than their predecessors.


If you own an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, would you trade it for a new Pixel or an iPhone 8 for the credit currently offered by Google and Apple?

Google is a bit more generous than Apple when it comes to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus trade-ins
