Apple expands iDevice trade-in program to Australia

updated 01:03 am EDT, Tue July 15, 2014

Older iPhone and iPads can be traded in for credit up to A$250

Australians can now trade-in their older iOS devices for up to A$250 ($235 US) towards the purchase of a new device, Apple announced on Monday. The higher reward is available to for iPhones, while buyers can get up to $202 (A$215) in credit for iPad trade-ins at Apple Stores across the country. The new program arrives just shy of a year after the US debut, which offers up to $225. Since then, the initiative has expanded to Canada, France, Germany, Italy and the UK.

To qualify for the credit towards a new device, Australians can bring in an older iPhone (3G or later) or iPad (iPad 2 or later) for the reward. Anything older than that doesn't qualify for credit, but will be recycled free of charge. Current products such as the iPhone 5c or 5s or iPad Air are also not eligible for credit, presumably to prevent thefts of current models. The credit awarded can be applied to newer devices from the Apple Store, or used generally on items and accessories in the store.
