Sell Old iPhone: How much is my iPhone still worth?

iPhone devices are known to have a high resale value. We reveal how much your device is still worth today.

While many Android devices drop in value just a few weeks after new release, you can be sure that iPhones are still worth quite a bit even after a few years of use. You want to sell your old iPhone on the open market or trade it in, but you don't know exactly how much your device is currently still worth? We'll tell you what to look out for and which old iPhone generations fetch the most money.

Before selling: What you need to watch out for

Basically, of course, the better the condition of the device, the more money you can ask for it. Signs of wear and tear are, of course, completely normal after several years of use, but they do reduce the value. However, purely optical flaws can be concealed well with appropriate protective covers, which is why buyers are happy to overlook one or two scratches on the case. Scratches or glass cracks in the display are not quite as lenient. The color of the iPhone can also play a role in the sale. As a rule, color-neutral iPhones in black and white change hands much more easily than brightly colored iPhones.

However, the "inner" values are much more important for potential buyers. How much storage capacity does your iPhone have? Here, too, you can make a general statement: The more memory your iPhone has, the more money you can charge, after all, the purchase price was also correspondingly higher. 

In addition, you can drive up the selling price by offering your old iPhone including original accessories (charging cable including adapter and headphones) and packaging.

Especially with older iPhone models it can happen that dealers or buyers ask for information about the battery capacity. To do so, simply go to "Settings > Battery > Battery status". The higher the value for the maximum capacity, the better. Don't forget to remove the SIM card from your iPhone (how to do this).

Also important: Do all buttons still work, such as the power button, volume up and down buttons on the side of the device, or (on older iPhone models) the home button? The Lightning port should also work properly. If defects occur here, this can also lead to depreciation. 

Sell privately or trade in?

The easiest way is to trade in the iPhone at one of the many online providers. As a rule, it is sufficient to provide some information on the points mentioned, based on which you will already receive a price proposal and then you only have to send in the "naked" device. The iPhone will then be checked by the provider and you will receive a final price offer, which you can still reject (usually without further costs).

You can also trade in your iPhone at Apple, where it will then be recycled. However, we can only advise against this, since Apple pays far too little money in exchange. A sale at other online providers would be more advisable. However, you can get the most money on the free market. Here, too, we can make a general statement: Take the price from online sellers and add another 50 to 80 Euros. In private sales, people also like to haggle again. We've taken a look around on the Internet and summarized for you how much different iPhone models are still worth today (as of June 2021) in the best possible condition. We have based the prices on the information from ReBuy. Keep in mind that these are not final prices, you should still be able to ask for a bit more on the open market.
