Ever since the iPhone 12 was announced, there has been a non-stop debate on the Internet about whether to buy one. In Malaysia, it has been on sale in Switch, Machines, Thunder Match and any other authorized dealers from the 13th of November. For some, the new chips and functionalities, together with iOS 14, makes it a worthy buy.

iPhone Series [Online / In-Store Trade-in]
Any iPhones from the iPhone 6 up until this year's iPhone SE (2020) can be traded-in! Last year's iPhone 11 Pro Max can go for a whopping RM3450! That's more than half of this year's iPhone 12 Pro Max (RM5299 onwards) saved if you're planning to get one!
iPad Series [In-Store Trade-in]
Switch is accepting all (yes, really, ALL) functioning iPads, but the ancient ones only get prices up till about RM300. If your iPad doesn't suit you or you think you need an even bigger screen, then go ahead and get it traded-in!
Apple Watch Series [In-Store Trade-in]
Who would've expected that Switch is even accepting Apple Watch trade-ins this year! Of course, trade in prices will differ according to any damage to your watch surface and internals. According to the list, Apple Watch isn't trading for a mouthwatering price so perhaps it might be better to keep it or gifted away?
Android Series [Online / In-Store Trade-in]
Aside from all that, newer releases of well-known Android smartphones [Samsung | vivo | Oppo | Xiaomi | Huawei] are also accepted! We can see from the list that Switch is opening its arms to quite a few Android smartphones, especially Samsung ones. Although prices are lower compared to iPhones, but it is definitely encouraging for those looking to switch (no pun intended!) from Androids to iPhones!
So, ready to switch it up yet? Head over to the nearest Switch store or their website to start the process now!
