Here at Compare and Recycle we have an array of different recyclers looking to buy your iPhone 6 Plus. Each company is offering a different amount of money for your device. There are two ways in which your can give your device to them: firstly, you can choose to send your device to them by yourself, or you can send your device to the recycler using the packaging that they will send to you. The recycling company will then assess your device to determine your phone’s worth. Your choice of payments are via PayPal, cheque or bank transfer.
The iPhone 6 Plus came out in 2014 alongside the iPhone 6, and it comes with four capacity options: 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. As the iPhone recycling price tendencies show, iPhone 6 Plus models are valued marginally higher across all capacities than iPhone 6 models. However with iOS 12 being the last software update for the iPhone 6 Plus, the offer prices have continued to depreciate further after iOS 13 rollout in September 2019.
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. If you own a fully working iPhone 6 Plus and you've cared well for it, you can recover slightly more from it than from an iPhone 6, for example. Currently, the top recycling price for an iPhone 6 Plus is just above £50, and since the iPhone 6 Plus is not compatible with iOS versions newer than iOS 12, there's limited time it can earn you a couple of quid.
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.
