Apple fans warned over ‘quiet’ iPhone change overnight that’ll cost you

IF you’re thinking about trading in your old Apple products t reduce the cost of a new iPhone, think again.

Apparently Apple are now giving you less for your money.

According to Mac Rumors, the value of iPhones traded-in has gone down by up to $80.

It’s not clear if the tech giant has applied the same principle to the UK and other countries.

But an archived Apple website page dated to January 13 shows you could previously get up to $650 for the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Yet today you can only get a maximum of $570.

That’s a drop of $80 against a new purchase.

Similarly, the iPhone 13 Pro went from $550 to $470.

And an iPhone 13 will now get you $400, instead of $450.

The same has happened to many newer devices Apple will accept.

Much older kit like the iPhone 7, iPhone 8 and iPhone X remain unchanged.

It seems only iPhone 11 Pro and newer have seen the rate cut.

Meanwhile, the value of iPads largely remained the same.

But credit from most MacBooks and Apple Watches also fell, albeit only slightly.
