Apple Renew / Trade-in Scheme Seems slow - Anyone else used it?
I just traded in a couple of iThings that I had lying around as I want to upgrade to a new iPhone. I gave Apple's official Reuse / Recycle programme a try.
It seemed very slow. The devices were signed for by their recycling company and seemed to sit in a warehouse for more than 10 days before it was assessed as being in perfect condition. They finally sent confirmation that they were paying the agreed price, but so far no sign of any Apple Store credit coming through. So, I'm guessing that's probably going to take another day or more.
The whole process has so far taken since 7 June and it's now 22 June.
I had been hoping to have ordered a new iPhone by now!
Anyone else used it ?
I'm just wondering if this is just a glitch or if 14+ days is normal enough for these kinds of services?
It just seems a bit impractical if you're actually trading in your main phone.
Given how quickly Apple tend to ship iThings, I thought I would have my new device days ago.
I think I'll just sell privately next time.
