Question: I have a broken screen on an iPad Air 1. Is it worth it to get it fixed-or is there any trade in program for this Apple iPad model??? Or worth it to get it fixed for $100 and then trade in?

I don't believe Apple provides for trade-ins, as far as, getting a cost value reduction for a new iPad. Instead, they may offer a means of disposal for "free." I would suggest that you contact your local Apple Store to ask what their policy is for trading in a used iPad.

It will cost more than $100 to get that iPad Air screen fixed/repaired/replaced per Apple’s pricing here.


https://support.apple.com/ipad/repair/screen-damage

It will cost you $249.00 U.S.D. to have the screen replaced.

Apple does not do trade-ins on iPads, what they may give is a recycle fee which will be around 10% of the cost you paid for your iPad.

Since this iPad Air can still run the latest iOS versions, maybe best to have the screen replaced properly by Apple and keep it and use it!

You will not get much for trade and may not only get back the money you paid to get the screen fixed it you try and sell it on your own.

An iPad Air is almost 4 years old, now!

OR

Simply do not fix it!

You can purchase a brand new, up to date 2017 iPad 5, 32 GBs storage model for $329 or the 128 GBs model for $42i9.

Good Luck to You!

I agree with Michel's recommendation to not fix it. Even if you could do it for $100 you still have a device that is so constrained that it cannot do much today. It's like it has an IQ of 6 but it takes 8 to drool. It is a very limited device now.
