Alternatively, the trade-in can also be done online, and Apple will send you a prepaid shipping label to mail your device to Apple once you're done with filling up the the online process. Regardless of which process you choose, make sure to prepare enough cash to avoid any problems. The whole process will take two to three weeks to be completed once you've settled everything and Apple receives your device.
