iPad Pro

As we explained in a more detailed blog earlier this week, the iPad Pro is worth the upgrade. Featuring state-of-the-art visual and audio technology, fast processing speed (powered by the Apple M1 chip), and an abundant list of features, it’s quite simply the best tablet on the market.

With the iPad Pro prices listed below, we cover the spectrum across three different sizes, going with the “smallest” version (usually the 128GB WiFi model or less), all the way up to the most expensive (typically the 2TB with WiFi and cellular). It should give you a better idea of its overall worth.

(Note: the below prices came from our most current quotes at GadgetGone, since we know a thing or two about determining the value of such great devices!)

What About Older iPads?

You may have noticed that this iPad trade-in guide focuses more on Apple’s newer tablets. But what about older iPads?

Sadly, the truth is they just aren’t worth that much anymore, mainly because their technology has been outdated by superior models. However, that doesn’t mean your device is worthless.

If you have an older iPad that still works, you can see what it sells for on eBay to get a better idea of overall worth. If you’re curious enough, you might even find the original 2010 model of the iPad for a good bargain!

That said, we do still take a few older iPad devices at GadgetGone, from the iPad 2 to the iPad 8, depending on condition. Feel free to take a look at our most current price quotes for further details on the iPad trade-in value for your device.
