By recycling your mobile phone you have helped safeguard our environment.
We have different recyclers that will want to buy your iPhone XS Max. You just need to choose which company you want to go for. You then choose the way in which to give your phone to the recycler you have chosen. You can either get sent a package to send your phone in to the company, or you can pack your device yourself and send it to them that way. Following an assessment of your device, you will later receive the money for your iPhone XS Max, either by bank transfer, cheque or PayPal.
It is usually recommended to sell your phone straight away, however sometimes there are factors to consider which might encourage you to think about waiting to sell your phone until a later date. There are some peaks annually which would get you more money, including towards the Christmas season and a few months before the announcement of another iPhone release (usually in September).
The iPhone XS Max was announced in 2018 and the model varies by 3 different capacities. The iPhone XS Max costed £1,099 when it was first released, with the higher capacity models costing more. The top price mentioned above is the highest price that you can get for your iPhone XS Max. If your phone has been kept in pristine condition, then you have a good chance of getting a top price for your phone.
Each company will have their own steps for the recycling process of your iPhone XS Max. Many companies will take your phone for refurbishment before it gets resold in the domestic market. If your device cannot be fixed, then your phone will be given to a recycling facility for the extraction of the profitable components of the device.
Some companies will take broken phones and turn them into usable second-hand devices. At the top of the page, you can choose 'broken' to describe the state of your phone. If your device has one of these problems- not turning on, having a cracked screen, unable to charge, speaker issues, dents and chips, and buttons that are not working anymore, then it will certainly count as being broken. If there is water damage, some companies may have their own rules, so you will have to read their Terms and Conditions or contact them to find out what your next steps should be.
