Why should I sell my iPhone?


Four iPhone models

There's a number of reasons why you should consider selling your Apple iPhone. Despite some of the models being several generations old now, there's still value in these devices.

iPhones contribute a huge amount to the E-Waste problem that is affecting our world today. By trading in your iPhone, you're doing your bit for the planet by stopping this technology from reaching landfill sites. For every Apple device that we purchase, we'll plant a tree in your name to ensure that the carbon emissions and impact is offset.  

When selling your iPhone you can get a great price and a promise that we'll offer a fair valuation that's valid for 14 days, giving you the time to return your iPhone back to us. Sell your Apple smartphone and return to us quickly to receive payment on the same day.

Questions about selling your iPhone


Why should I sell my iPhone with Tech Octopus?


At The Tech Octopus we're passionate about recycling and the circular economy. We make sure that every iPhone device is refurbished & re-sold or responsibly recycled. If you're looking to sell an iPhone 11 Pro, the very popular iPhone 12 Mini, the sleek and modern iPhone 14 Pro Max or even a faulty iPhone XR, we're the consumer choice for a Fair, Fast and Free alternative.

We believe that selling your old or unwanted iPhone should be a simple and hassle-free process. That's why we're committed to providing 5-star service and payment on the same day we test your Apple device.

We use industry leading software to assess the condition and functionality of your iPhone, so you can be certain that we're not ripping you off. Every iPhone receives a health check and a certified data wipe, meaning we clear all data from the device.

If you're not happy with the price we offer, you can have your device returned to you for FREE. Don't delay and sell your iPhone today! If you want more reasons to sell, please read about them here


What should I do before selling my iPhone?


Before you trade in your iPhone with The Tech Octopus, follow these simple steps below to ensure a fast and simple experience:


  1. Unpair any accessories that may be connected to your iPhone, such as an Apple Watch or AirPods
  2. Backup any data and images to the cloud or a personal computer
  3. Sign out of your iCloud account. Find out how
  4. Erase all of your content and settings - Don't worry if you forget to do this as we'll wipe your device on arrival
  5. Remove any SIM cards and accessories such as cases and screen protectors
  6. Give your device a good clean to make sure there's no dirt that could affect our conditional checks

Do you accept broken iPhones?


It's not just perfect or working iPhones that we'll buy. If your Apple device has faults such as connectivity issues, smashed screen, broken LCD or damaged casing, we can still offer you a great price for your damaged mobile. Most broken devices end up at the back of a drawer or thrown away. If you want to earn a little extra cash to put towards a new device, or are looking to clear out your cupboards then Tech Octopus can help you to de-clutter. Find out more about selling your damaged iPhone.

When selling your old iPhone make sure you check its condition and choose the correct condition when asked. You can still get a great price for your faulty tech, but make sure you do this today as the value of iPhones may drop.

Although we aim to buy most iPhones, there's a number of faults or issues that may stop us being able to offer a value. If your mobile is totally smashed, snapped, has water damage, or classified as 'blacklisted' then we wouldn't be able to purchase from you.


How much can I get for my iPhone?


When you sell to Tech Octopus your iPhone's value will be based on a number of factors: The model or generation of the iPhone, the storage or capacity, the network your iPhone is locked to (if any), and its condition. You'll earn more cash for a brand new iPhone 15 Pro Max than one of the older iPhones such as the iPhone X or iPhone XS for example.

We offer 4 levels of condition to choose from: Pristine, Good, Poor and Faulty. An iPhone that is in 'Perfect' condition is like a new device and will not show any signs of use whatsoever, whereas a 'Faulty' iPhone will have issues or serious damage.

To determine the condition of your Apple device, make sure to read the condition descriptions carefully and select the correct choice or you may receive a reduced offer price once the mobile has been assessed.

Selling your iPhone is a simple and free way to get cash quickly, and with our same day payment, you'll be able to do what you want with the extra money earned.

How long does it take to receive my iPhone payment?


Once we receive your iPhone from you, we'll send you an email letting you know that we've got your package. Our technical operations team will then assess the condition of the device and put this through our diagnostic software to identify any faults or issues the mobile might have (if any). If your iPhone meets the criteria it was sold as, we'll pay you immediately on the same day directly into your bank or PayPal account.

If there's any problems with the iPhone or something we need to flag with you, we'll let you know by Email and SMS that an action needs to be taken. If you're not happy with a valuation or you want you iPhone back, we'll return it back to you for FREE!

Payments are usually made on the same day that we receive and test your device, but please allow up to 48 hours for the cash to reach your account as some banks may take longer to process this payment.
