For most devices, the key to selling them is often to go with sooner as opposed to later, since their worth decreases as times goes on. However, there are specific points in the year that are ideal times to sell your iPhone X. The best times to sell your phone during the year are firstly two or so months prior to the Christmas period, and just before a new iPhone model is announced (usually in September).
The iPhone X was announced in late 2017, commemorating the iPhone series' tenth anniversary. It comes with two capacity options: 64GB and 256GB. The higher capacity phones retain their value for longer, but the lower capacity models will depreciate at a slower rate in the first year. The highest price you can get for your iPhone X (see above) is dependent on your phone's condition. The better the condition, the higher the price you can receive for it.
The recycling steps for your iPhone X are dependent on your recycler of choice. Each company will have their own process for giving your device a new lease of life, which typically involves a refurbishment. If your device cannot be fixed, then it goes to a recycling facility for internal components to be removed and put on the market.
Some companies will take your broken phone and refurbish it so that it will become usable again as a second-hand device. At the top of the page, you can choose 'broken' as the condition of your phone. The following problems which would make your device be considered as broken include issues with the speaker, the phone not charging properly, a broken screen, dents and buttons not working. If your device has water damage, ensure that you contact your recycler or read their Terms and Conditions to see their policy on this.
