Selling your iPhone 7 is easier than ever with our comparison of phone recyclers. Each company offers a different amount for your device, which is something that you will probably want to consider when making your choice. You have two ways to send your phone to a recycler.

Nonetheless, there are specific periods each year where you can get a good price for your phone. These are namely during the lead up to the Christmas holidays and a couple of months before the launch of another iPhone, which is usually in September.

Your device's capacity is what will determine the amount of money that you will get for your phone, along with the device's quality. If your device is in excellent condition, then this will maximise the amount of money that you will receive.
Each recycler will have a different set of steps for recycling your iPhone 7, however the process usually involves a refurbishment. If your phone is beyond repair, then you can send it to a recycling facility where the profitable components of your device can be removed and put back on the market.
