Comparing prices for your mobile phone has potentially gained you an extra £44 cash and by recycling your Apple iPhone 6 you're also doing your bit for the environment!
To the right we list our Top Recommended Deal and below that we show all the mobile phone recyclers who will pay you to recycle your old Apple mobile phone.
There is a variety of recycling companies for you to sell your iPhone 6 to, each with an offer of a different price for your phone. There are two different options for sending your phone to them: firstly, you can send your phone to them independently with your own packaging, or you can use the packaging that they send you and you can give your phone to them that way. The recycler will then carry out an assessment of your device which will determine how much money you will get for it. To get paid, you can opt for either a cheque, via PayPal or a bank transfer.
It tends to be recommended to sell your iPhone 6 immediately, because iPhones’ value decreases as time goes on. However, there are certain points in the year which would be a good time to sell your phone as you could get a higher price for your device. These tend to be prior to the launch of a new Apple product (typically in September) or during the build-up to Christmas.
The iPhone 6 was released in 2014 with a selection of four capacities: 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. Your phone’s capacity will in part determine the price of your phone. There is also the device’s condition to consider. If your iPhone 6 has been well looked after, you could get more money for it.
Every recycling company has their own steps to recycle your phone, but what typically occurs is that your device will be refurbished. If your phone is truly beyond saving in terms of a makeover, then it will be sent to a recycling facility where the valuable parts of the phone will be taken out and resold.
Your phone might be a complete wreck, however, do not let this deter you from selling it on the domestic market. At the top of the page, select ‘broken’ to describe your phone. Your device could have all sorts of different problems, but some notable ones are signs of wear and tear, a broken screen, issues with charging your device and broken buttons. If your phone has water damage, make sure to have a look at your recycling company’s T&Cs, or contact them to find out what their rules on this are.
