That ’s because Apple is offering more credit for your old iPhone when you trade it in. Apple skipped on offering much in the way of must-have discounts for Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but today it launched a significant boost to trade - in credit for older iPhones .

Apple skipped on offering much in the way of must-have discounts for Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but today it launched a significant boost to trade-in credit for older iPhones. The amount you’re getting probably still isn’t equal to what you’d make by selling on Craigslist or elsewhere, but Apple’s option is all about convenience.

It’s worth noting that this promotion is only open for those who are upgrading to the 2018 iPhone lineup, meaning the XS, XS Max, or XR. (That’s one way to increase demand.) Exactly how much more trade-in credit you’ll receive depends on the phone you’re handing over:

  • iPhone 6 is worth $150, up from $75
  • iPhone 6 Plus is worth $200, up from $100
  • iPhone 6S is also worth $200, up from $100
  • iPhone 6S Plus is worth $250, up from $150
  • iPhone 7 is worth $250, up from $175
  • iPhone 7 Plus is worth $300, barely up from $250
  • iPhone 8 is also worth $300, up from $250

If you have an iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, or anything newer, your trade-in value is unaffected by the promotion, which should run through the rest of this year and into 2019.

Microsoft tops Apple to become most valuable company in US.
Microsoft is the most valuable publicly traded U.S. company, surpassing Apple for the title. Microsoft passed Apple in market cap again during intraday trading Friday, after jockeying for the top spot for most of the week. Microsoft surpassed Apple for seconds or minutes at a time all week, but Apple consistently beat out Microsoft in market valuation at market close. At Friday's close, Microsoft held an implied market valuation of $851.2 billion, based on an outstanding share count of 7,676,218,736 shares as of October 19, 2018, according to the company's most recent SEC filing.
