Apple brings iPad in-store trade-in program to UK and Europe

Apple will now allow you to bring your old iPad into one of its retail stores and exchange it against the value of a brand new iOS device.

The initiative was launched in the US and Canada just last month on Earth Day as part of the company’s green-tinted recycling initiative. Now it’s made its way to Europe.

Apple will now accept your iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 and original iPad mini for exchange in its stores, where an Apple employee will provide you with a value depending on condition and age. There’s no indication of what those values will be, though.

Meanwhile, neither the iPad Air nor the iPad mini 2 Retina are eligible for the new trade-in scheme.

This move follows Apple bringing its iPhone in-store trade-in scheme to the UK in October of last year. Apple’s valuation at that time ranged from £220 for a pristine iPhone 5 down to £10 for an original iPhone.

Apple even accepts broken iPhones for exchange, so we’d expect it to do the same for its tablet range – though this will obviously have an impact on the price you get.

It’s also worth noting that you can now trade your old iPhone against the value of a brand new iPad (and vice-versa), which wasn’t possible before.

The Apple in-store Reuse and Recycling Programme is active now in the UK, France, Germany, and Spain.
