How much is my iPad worth?
We want you to be happy with your offer from GadgetGone. So before selling your iPad, it’s a good idea to get multiple price quotes to make sure you’re getting the best trade-in value for resale.
Aside from getting your instant GadgetGone offer, a great way to assess the potential value of your broken iPad is by taking a look at Apple’s trade-in page. While Apple’s offers are generally on the lower end, it will give you a good baseline to check the fair market value. Keep in mind if you choose to sell your tablet through Apple, you’ll receive your payout as an Apple gift card, not cash. It’s also important to note that, in most cases, any sort of physical damage will drop the value of your Apple trade-in significantly—oftentimes to $0.
Some other popular places that will give you a quick iPad valuation include Gazelle, Best Buy, Target, GameStop, Verizon, and uSell. Remember that if you find a better price from any of these companies, GadgetGone will beat it with our PriceMatch+ Guarantee. Just message us to let us know the company you’d like to price match.
Can I sell my used iPad even if it’s broken?
Yes! GadgetGone accepts iPads in a variety of different conditions, from brand-new to broken. We’re the best place to sell your broken tablet because unlike other trade-in sites, we’ll pay you a fair price.
Have an old iPad with a cracked or damaged screen that works perfectly otherwise? Don’t settle for lackluster offers from one of our competitors. Select our special “cracked” condition category and get paid more than with any other buyback program. You can even sell old iPads that are water damaged, bent, or that won’t turn on. No matter the issue, you’ll always get the most cash by trading in your cracked or broken iPad to GadgetGone.
Can I sell a locked iPad?
That depends on what you mean by “locked.” While you can sell your carrier-locked iPad to GadgetGone, we do not accept iCloud-locked (also known as activation-locked) iPads or used tablets that have been reported as lost or stolen.
Can I sell more than one iPad?
Definitely! Heck, you can sell devices of all kinds to GadgetGone, not just iPads. Whether you have multiple iPads of the same model or a bunch of different models, you can add any quantity necessary to your cart when getting your initial quote. We even accept bulk trade-ins from wholesale sellers or companies looking for IT asset recovery.
Does it matter which carrier I have?
Not at all! All iPads come out of the box with the ability to work with most U.S.-based networks. So, we don’t deduct value for different carriers. It doesn’t matter if your used iPad is from Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile: all of these tablets are simply referred to as “WIFI + Cellular” models.
Do I have to sell my iPad after I get a quote?
Nope! All of our quotes are obligation-free. You don’t have to ship your iPad unless you’re happy with the amount we’ve offered. And if for some reason you change your mind after sending it in, we’ll mail your used tablet back to you for free—no questions asked.
How long do I have to ship?
Your quote is locked in for 14 days from the time you check out on our website. As long as the USPS tracking number shows you shipped your used iPad within those 14 days, your offer amount is guaranteed.
You can still ship your iPad after the 14-day, price-lock period (some of our customers wait 30 days or more); however, your tablet will be subject to whatever our current pricing is at the time of evaluation. Earlier is always better, but feel free to ship your iPad whenever you’re ready to sell!
What do I need to do before selling my iPad?
Unsure of how to prepare your old iPad for selling? Just follow these easy steps:
1. Back up your iPad using iCloud or iTunes.
2. Turn off Find My iPad and erase your data by going to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings.
3. Fully charge your iPad, then turn it off.
4. If you have a WIFI + Cellular model iPad, remove your SIM card before shipping your tablet in.
