On our site there is a choice of X different recyclers who will be willing to buy your iPhone 5s. Your options for getting your phone to them are as follows: you can either send your device yourself or you can use the packaging that they will send to you. The recycler will then carry out an assessment of your device which will, in part, determine the amount of money that you will receive. To get paid, your options are either a bank transfer, PayPal or via cheque.
When it comes to selling your phone, it is usually recommended to put it on the market immediately. This is because smartphones’ value depreciates over time. Despite this, there are still specific times each year which could get you more money for your phone. These are usually in the months leading up to Christmas and just before a new iPhone is announced (which is usually in September).
The iPhone SE came out in 2016 and it comes with a choice of four capacity options: 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. The device’s capacity is what partially dictates the amount of money you will receive for your iPhone SE. The price is also determined by its condition. If your device is in good condition, this will maximise the price that you will receive for it.
Each recycler will carry out different processes for recycling your device, however what usually happens is that your phone will have a refurbishment. If your phone is past the point of a simple repair job, then it will go to a recycling facility in which the profitable internal components of your device will be removed and put back on the market.
Even if your device is completely broken, it can still get sold as a second-hand device with certain recycling companies. At the top of the page, choose ‘broken’ to categorise your device.
