In this article, you can learn more about what the program is all about, and the donations Apple will be making.
Apple GiveBack Program
Apple GiveBack is a trade-in and recycling program which allows you to send in your old devices for recycling – free. This can be those old iPhone, iPads, and other Apple devices laying around. No matter the model or condition, Apple will accept it for recycling.
Bonus Apple Store Gift Card
Eligible devices you send in will have you rewarded with a bonus Apple Store Gift Card of up to A$470. How much you get back, and if the device you are sending is eligible will vary. It is all determined by the model and its condition.
At the time of writing, the trade-in value of iPhone and other smartphones is up to A$470, or, A$370 for iPads and other tablets. While trade-in on certain Apple Watch models is valued at up to A$210.
Earth Day Donation
While the Apple GiveBack program is ongoing, Apple has announced a limited-time donation. For every device received at Apple Stores and through apple.com/au from April 20th to April 30th, 2018, Apple will make a donation to the non-profit Conservation International.
