It is usually advised to put your iPhone 6 Plus back on the market sooner rather than later, as smartphones’ value tends to depreciate over time. Nonetheless, there are specific periods during the year which would be ideal times to put your device back on the market. This is because you could receive a higher price due to supply and demand. The periods which are often good times to sell your device are usually just before the Christmas period and before the release of a new iPhone (this usually occurs in September).
The iPhone 6 Plus came out in 2014 alongside the iPhone 6, and it comes with four capacity options: 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. The capacity of your device is what partially dictates the amount of money that you will receive for your phone. The other deciding factor is the condition of your phone. If you have taken good care of your iPhone 6 Plus, then you are likely to get a good price for it.
Each recycler will have their own processes for recycling, however what usually happens is that your phone will undergo a refurbishment. If your device is past the point of being repaired, then it will go to a recycling facility. When it gets there, the profitable components of the device will be extracted and sold.
Even if your device is completely broken, this should not stop you from reselling it. At the top of the page, choose 'broken' to categorise your device. It could have an array of different issues, but some of the more common ones are the screen breaking, the device not charging properly, buttons that do not work and scratches and dents. If your device has been subjected to water damage, make sure that you have read your recycler’s Terms and Conditions, or get in touch with them to find out what their policies are.
