How Do I Sell My iPhone?

If you have an old iPhone gathering dust, reselling it can be a great way to make easy cash. A used iPhone can command surprisingly high prices if you know how to sell it. On top of that, giving your old iPhone a new life is much better for the environment. By choosing EcoATM, you can sell your iPhone today and make extra money while keeping it out of the landfill. 


Understand Your Selling Options

You have a few options when it comes to selling your old iPhone. You can ask around with friends and family, but finding a buyer this way may be hard. Usually, you'll post a listing on an online marketplace or trade your phone in with a reseller.  

Direct Sales Through Online Marketplaces

Platforms like eBay, Craigslist, and Facebook Marketplace are popular choices for those looking to sell their iPhones directly to buyers. These websites allow you to reach a large audience and potentially get a better price than trade-in options because you sell directly to the end customer.

That said, many phone listings aren't so ideal. A phone can go unsold for a long time on these platforms, which results in your phone depreciating even more. If you find a buyer, online marketplaces frequently face fraud from dishonest customers. 

Trade-In for Quick Convenience

For a faster, more straightforward approach, consider trading in your iPhone. Many electronic retailers, carrier stores, and online services offer trade-in programs where you can exchange your old iPhone for credit towards a new purchase or for cash.

Trading in is quick and convenient. You can usually complete the transaction in-store or online fairly quickly. Then, you immediately receive cash or credit.

Using a trade-in program is often the best decision, but you need to choose carefully. 

How to Sell My iPhone for the Right Price

You need to understand how different factors affect your iPhone's market value before you sell it. This research takes time, but it makes all the difference in getting a better sale price. 

Evaluate the iPhone Model

The specific model of your iPhone has a significant impact on its resale value. Newer models or those with higher specifications typically hold their value better due to continued software support and consumer demand.

Check how prices vary between different models and how recent upgrades affect the market. An iPhone with the latest features or larger storage capacity often sells for more.

Consider the Condition of Your iPhone

The better the condition of your iPhone, the more it's worth. Phones that show little to no wear and tear will attract more buyers, higher offers, and better trade-in rates. 

Look for any signs of physical damage or software issues. Even minor scratches or dents can reduce the price, so it's best to be realistic about its condition.

Factor in Storage Capacity and Carrier

iPhones with larger storage capacities generally sell for more because they offer more utility, whereas phones with low storage depreciate especially fast. Likewise, a carrier-locked phone will lose value depending on the popularity of the carrier in question. Unlocked phones with greater storage sell for much more than otherwise similar models. 

Preparing Your iPhone for Sale

Much of our lives are on our phones today. Clear all the data from your phone before you move forward with a sale. Preserve your private information and your safety with these steps:

  1. Back up all of your photos, videos, apps, and personal data to your Mac, PC, or iCloud.
  2. Begin erasing your data from the device before the sale to prepare for the new owner. Follow the pathway Settings> General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings.
  3. Enter your passcode and Apple ID password to confirm the reset.
  4. Remove your SIM and other accessories from your old iPhone.
