Apple has changed its trade-in policy to accept in-person Mac trade-ins at the Apple Store.
Prior to the change, Apple excluded Macs from in-person trade-ins, forcing owners to use the website option instead. Alternately, users could opt to sell their Mac via Craigslist, Facebook or some other platform.
The company’s site promises a competitive trade-in value, saying: “Just answer a few questions about your device. Based on what you tell us, we’ll offer you a competitive trade-in estimate for an Apple Store Gift Card or instant credit at an Apple Store. Or you’ll have the option to recycle it for free.”
This change is a welcome one for users who want a hassle-free option for applying the value of their existing Mac toward a new purchase.
