Nowadays, it’s easy to buy new devices but not as easy to sell them when they are used. Where can you sell your iPhone Canada? You can find an iPhone 5C 8GB for $100 on Kijiji or Craigslist. Though, there might be a better way to make money on an old iPhone with Apple Renew, the recycling program from Apple, especially if you want to buy a new one.

Apple launched Apple Renew in 2011. Back then, it was only possible to do it online, but since 2014 you can go in an Apple Store to trade your iPhone against a credit. If you’ve ever wondered: “How can I sell my iPhone back to Apple?” this could be a perfect solution for you

Sell iPhone Canada – Brightstar

Brightstar, a third part company, evaluates the value of the phone. The value change according to the model, the state of the phone, it can go up to $ 400 for an iPhone 6 Plus. It’s a great solution for people who want to sell iPhone Canada. It is really interesting if you have an old iPhone (iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5C). It is harder to sell those online nowadays as buyers have a tendency to negotiate the price or there is no one to buy.

How to evaluate the price of your iPhone?

Here are the criteria to evaluate your device. First of all, the power. Can you power up your phone, and does the charge hold? Also, the power connection should not be damaged; otherwise it will reduce the value.
Then, the enclosure can have minor scratches or scuffs from normal wear and tear. Though cracks, splits, or fractures on the enclosure might decrease the price to 0

It also must be free from liquid damage.

The display is in good condition if it shows minor scratches or scuffs, the edges have six minor chips, and you can “slide the slider” across the screen to unlock or lock the device with no issues.

Finally the buttons must be present and working properly. For example, you need to be able to use the on/off switch to put the phone to stand by the phone.

Apple will not accept any devices that have been repaired by an unauthorized Apple repair provider or that contain non-original equipment manufacturer parts.

Therefore, if your phone meets all those criteria, or even some of them, you can benefit from Apple Renew. You can evaluate the phone yourself online or you can go in a retail store. The value might vary if you are in store or online.

One more thing, if you intend to sell your iPhone do not forget to erase its memory completely!
