Apple pays cash to recycle old iPhones, iPads and desktops

Apple has launched a ‘Reuse and Recycling’ section of its official website, offering cash for old iPads, iPhones, desktops and notebooks.

The new service, provided by German company Dataserv, doesn’t just offer cash for Apple products either, but allows you to sell third-party desktops and notebooks.

The website utilises a simple drop-down menu system allowing customers to select the category, manufacturer, series and model before answering a series of questions relating to the state of the device. Based on the answers you give, Apple issues an instant online quote.

After selecting to receive a quote for our iPad 2 32GB Wi-Fi version, which incidentally is in perfect working order, we were offered £247. In comparison, that particular used model is selling for approximately £350 on eBay. Maybe Apple plans to sell them on auction sites at a profit?

If you decide to accept the online quote, you have five days to ship your product to Apple, who promises to pay directly into your bank account within 30 days, providing you haven’t blatantly lied about the state of your device. Apple also accepts items that aren’t working.

For more details, or to sell your unwanted devices, check out the ‘Reuse and Recycle’ website.

Not very good prices at all

£47 for a 16GB 3GS ?

Everywhere else gives £100
Yeah the prices are rubbish. Only offered me £50 for my 32GB 3GS, worth much more elsewhere.
Offered £350 for my 32GB 4S, paid £600 for it on release day.

106 days old, lost £250, so it's cost me £2.35 a day if I were to sell it.

And they're offering £413 for my mid-2009 15" MacBook Pro, in excellent condition and working fine.. Paid £1399 for it IIRC.
No iPod love :(
When you pay inflated prices in the first place …..
