On Apple's website you can now see a list of revised trade in prices on devices like the iPhone 12, the best iPhone you can trade-in at Apple, as well as the iPad Air, Apple Watch Series 6, and more.

The full details are as follows:

Get extra trade-in credit when you trade in an eligible iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple Watch and purchase a new Apple device until 31 May 2022. The extra trade-in credit may range from £10 to £50 for iPhone, £10 to £50 for iPad, £10 to £30 for Mac and £10 to £30 for Apple Watch. Additional terms from Apple or Apple's trade-in partners may apply.

As always, the trade-in value of your device is based on factors like condition, such as whether the screen is cracked or if the buttons work.

Apple recently slashed a lot of its trade-in prices by a large amount in the U.S., cutting some prices by up to 42%, as it does routinely to reflect the value of devices as they age. The boost offer is available to customers through May 31.
