If you are a serial upgrader and look to sell your device as soon as the latest one comes out, then the best time to sell your iPhone 12 mini would be to lock in the price as early as you can in September, making use of the lock in period that the companies on Compare and Recycle offer.

The iPhone 12 Mini was the cheapest iPhone of the 12 range, in part due to it’s petite form. You could pick it up starting at £699. In the first year since its release it lost 50% of its value, meaning the max you could pick it up was for around £350, which was the largest reduction in price for a new iphone in the first year for some time. However, it may still be worth thinking of keeping the iPhone 12 mini, as mentioned, the device itself has been sought after as a premium but small device, the likes of which you don;t see very often, so in the long term, might just hold its value a lot better.
Every recycler that we work with has their own processes to recycle your iPhone 12 Mini, but most devices actually come back through the system in reasonably good condition and just need a little bit of tidying up before they are sold as refurbished devices
Broken devices take a little more work to put in a saleable condition, the trouble is that most of our merchants have a different definition of broken, however, if you iPhone 12 mini has a cracked screen or real glass, any broken buttons or the battery health is below 80%, then they will class the device as broken.
