How to get the most cash for old iPhones and Apples Watches

With the Series 3 Apple Watches and iPhone 8 and 8 Plus already arrived and the iPhone X launch less than a month away, we wanted to let you know that our trade in partner, MyPhones Unlimited is currently paying more than almost anyone else for your used or broken iPhones. We’ve compared the largest companies that offer cash for your devices (Gazelle, Buyback World, Nextworth, uSell etc.) and we almost always offer more for iPhones, Apple Watches, iPads and other tech gadgets…

Unless you have a 32GB T-Mobile iPhone 7 or 16GB T-Mobile iPhone 6s Plus, we offer the same or more than each of the other companies listed above (at the time of writing). Sometimes we only match or beat by $10, but sometimes the gap is much larger – for example, we pay $40 more than Gazelle for an unlocked, good condition iPhone 7 Plus and $35 more than Nextworth for an AT&T iPhone 7 Plus with a cracked screen.

As soon as you submit a quote, our partners at MyPhones Unlimited will ship you a box with shipping supplies and a prepaid return label. All you have to do is drop your device in, mail it back, and wait for your check to arrive in the mail about 7-10 days later.

We also offer the best program to sell your used Apple Watches! Gazelle doesn’t offer anything for Apple Watches and Apple won’t even give store credit for them, only offering to recycle them for free. We offer a simple and intuitive platform to quickly see how much you can get for your old Apple Watch. We’re paying up to $200 for the Series 2 right now.

Yes, you can probably get more money if you sell your devices yourself through Craigslist, Swappa, or eBay, but there are inherent risks and time commitments that not everyone wants to deal with. As far as trade-in and buyback services go, we firmly believe our partner’s combination of ease of transaction, the best service and highest prices makes the service a no brainer. But you don’t have to take our word for it, feel free to click here and check out prices for yourself!

While 9to5Mac does do business, use, and endorse the above company (and has for almost 5 years), the business is external and we cannot be held liable for your experience. We may receive a small commission if you are satisfied with and move forward with your cash trade-in or repair (which is a great way to support the site). We appreciate any feedback on your experience.
