Apple now taking iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, and 6s Plus trade-ups; offers up to $315

“Following last week’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus launch, Apple has added the iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 6s Plus to its trade-up program in the United States, offering estimated trade-in values of $160, $275, and $315 respectively towards the purchase of a new iPhone,” Joe Rossignol reports for MacRumors.

“Apple has also lowered its estimated trade-in values for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus by $25 each to $200 and $225 respectively, while the iPhone 5s now scores $90 instead of $125,” Rossignol reports. “iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c trade-in values are now $50 and $40 respectively, down from $75 each, and the iPhone 4s is no longer eligible for trade in.”

I don’t need profit when I see a family member trying to view that tiny 4S screen and not having Touch ID and Apple Pay. I’m as excited for her as I am for myself when my 7 Plus arrives.

    1. An ACTUAL nova or supernova at Sol would put an end to all the madness, the lameness, and the pointlessness on this godforsaken planet. It would incinerate the terrorists and erase any reason for their terrorism. It would constitute the ultimate expression of Karma for the misbegotten human race, a species that once had promise but exceeded its mandate by elevating killing over coexistence. Never mind waiting for the Sun to explode; — Trot out the nukes and let’s just get it over with.
