Apple is expanding its in-store iPad trade-in program. Launched on Earth Day last month to cover Apple Stores in the United States and Canada, consumers in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Spain can now take advantage of the offer. That’s according to 9to5Mac. While the current generation iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display aren’t eligible, Apple Stores will accept the iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, and first-generation iPad mini. The exact amount you’ll receive is determined by the condition of the device. Just like with the similar iPhone program at Apple Stores, credit from any iPad trade-in can be used to purchase any iOS device. If you’re looking for actual cash for a used iPad, you’ll have to go elsewhere as Apple Stores only offer gift cards to use at a retail location. Some other alternatives include Gazelle, NextWorth, and Glyde. To coincide with Earth Day, Apple also announced that it will recycle all of its devices for free at any retail store, even if the device has little or no value.
