    How much is my iPad worth online?

    What's the best iPad trade-in deal for new, used and broken devices?

    How much your iPad is worth depends directly on the following information:

    • iPad series: iPad, iPad Air, iPad Pro, iPad Mini
    • iPad model/generation: iPad 5th Gen, iPad Air 2, iPad Pro 9.7 1st Gen
    • iPad capacity: 32GB / 256GB / 512GB (GB= Gigabytes)
    • Device condition: Is it brand new, used but in great condition, or broken?
    • Wi-Fi or 4G LTE: The two types of iPad typically command different trade-in values
    • Time of trade-in: Selling around new releases cause huge price drops
    • Buyback Store: Carriers, kiosks, stores, and online solutions offer different pricing

    So if you're thinking of selling and wondering how much you can trade in my iPad for, you should first make sure you know what model, generation and storage capacity it is, we have a guide here:

    Find out how to identify my iPad

    Then, remove any protective casing and have a look around the tablet for cosmetic damage, for example, excessive scratches, chips in the frame and cracks in the screen. If it's visually ok and you know there aren't any issues with the software or hardware (e.g., it turns on, charges and works fine), you know you can sell your iPad as a used or good condition. If your device is not functioning well or has a lot of visual damage, you can always trade it in as 'broken.'

    If you want to know how much a used iPad is worth, e.g., a tablet that has no visible damage and works fine then simply select the 'Good' condition on the product page. However, it's worth noting that they can tell during testing if you're trying to sell a water damaged iPad. You can still get money for these devices, but selling a water damage iPads do not fall under the used or good condition pricing (so select broken!)

    You can't sell blacklisted iPads too, so these are iPads with outstanding credit, reported as lost or stolen. Use the search above to find out how much you can sell your iPad for.

    Apple Giveback iPad trade-in VS BankMyCell

    Don't fence yourself in, get what your old iPad is genuinely worth

    Apple has a trade-in solution called the Apple GiveBack program; this is a solution that lets owners of iPads, iPhones, and Macs to swap their old device for store credit to use in their retail shops. It's worth mentioning right off the bat that Apple GiveBack is branded as Apple but is actually run by Brightstar, a global company in the cell phone market.

    Finding your Apple iPad trade-in value

    You'll need to know your devices serial number when you're looking to sell used iPads for cash with Apple GiveBack. However, you can quickly check the top offer by looking at the Tablet section of the page to compare against BankMyCell.

    Mystery Shopper 26th June '19 Top price for iPads
    BankMyCell Up to $640
    Apple GiveBack Up to $367

    *Top prices offered in the iPad trade-in categories - 06/26/2019


    • This convenient system is built for people wanting to upgrade and their old device for a new one, creating a seamless upgrade for consumers to get the latest tech.
    • You get more than you would selling at other instore solutions like GameStop, Walmart, Best Buy, Eco ATM's and Target.


    • Using their serial numbers, we checked the value of several iPads on Apple GiveBack; the prices were all less than the deals offered by the online trade-in stores we compare.
    • The value you get is only available as store credit, so you have to stay in the Apple ecosystem with your cash and spend it on an upgrade or other products.

    Don't get us wrong, the Brightstar run Apple solution is still a good choice for customers upgrading their Apple products, and as mentioned they offer a reasonable deal compared to other in-store buyback programs people have learned to avoid.

    When should I sell my iPad?

    The best time to trade-in your iPad before it crashes in value

    In short, prices update every 15 minutes on our site, so now is the best time to sell your iPad for cash is today!

    However, if you're looking for the right time to sell your iPad online and you're not ready right now, then there are some essential facts to take into account.

    From tracking trade-in prices internationally since 2009, we know that the new iPad announcement will spark a violent drop in value, typically 15-20% days after the event. In fact, between 60-80% of your iPads 12-month loss of value is in the three months following a release - this can equal mean you lose out on well over $150 of cash.

    Could I sell my iPad to apple trade in stores?

    We often get asked this question, read on in the next section to see how Apple Giveback compares to BankMyCell's aggregated pricing.

    When should you sell your iPad based on your situation?

    • If you're upgrading to the new iPad, then the best time to sell your old iPad for cash toward the upgrade is right before Apple announces the new model at the event, 2-3 days before.
    • If you're merely decluttering, then waste no time and sell today. Prices rarely trend upwards so locking in your deal today will no doubt get you the highest value.
    • If you want quick cash instore, make sure selling online with FREE shipping and waiting a few days is not an option. Why? Well for example, in one of our price checks Walmart offered $176 / 57% less than us for an iPad Pro… Ouch!

    NOTE: iPad release dates have not been as consistent as they are for iPhones, the original iPad came out in spring. The others have been spread over fall, winter, and spring, so we recommend checking when the next one is to avoid the price crash.
