Apple’s trade-in program doesn’t give customers cash for their old devices, but it will exchange it for Apple Store credit that can be used to purchase a new iPad or iPhone.
The in-store iPad trade-in program kicked off Monday in Europe according to Apfelpage.de but has been available in the U.S. since Earth Day last month. Models eligible for trade-in including the iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPad mini, but not the new iPad Air or Retina Mini.
A similar program was launched last year for iPhone recycling, providing customers an easier option to recycling old electronics.
Details on how much credit Apple is giving for used iPads in the European countries hasn’t been made available yet, but it should be comparable to the US values – currently a Wifi-only 16GB iPad 4 in good condition has a trade-in value of $200.
