How and Where to Trade your iPhone X for iPhone X Max or XS

September 22, 2018

Feature phones are a thing of the past now. If you have one, you are practically screaming ancient. Most of the younger generation don’t even recognise them. Smartphones are the daily drivers now. People nowadays have become modern. Everyone always desires to be with the latest trend in the market. But when the discussion is smartphones, nothing beats an iPhone. Be it user-interface, performance, or style; the Apple iPhone was made to brag. Staying on the top of the line from when it was first introduced in 2007.

People who have an iPhone don’t just keep one; they want the latest, the best one on the market. And since these flagships tend to be a tad bit pricey, a lot of the current owners like to “reconsider”.

So, everybody knows, that the new iPhones X, X, Max and the XS have been announced and will be on under use by the end of the month. Mind you these are Apple’s products so the price tags should be well above average. As always, your older iPhone 8 and 8 plus have become old. Why not sell your iPhone online and get some money for the new one? If there is one thing all iPhones have in common, it’s good resale value. People can sell phone online, lazing around at home.

 

Preparing your iPhone for resale

You like the idea, don’t you? Why not make sure you are truly ready and prepared to sell iPhone online. These minor details can help you a lot. Trouble doesn’t knock on your door and asks “May I come in?”.

You have an iPhone, so it means you have an Apple Watch. The first thing will be to unpair your device from the watch. You can easily do it from Watch app while keeping the connected piece of hardware nearby. Apple ID might be required for confirmation. Don’t fret, iPhone makes a backup of the watch taking into consideration that you might want to use it with the new Apple flagship. And backup is what our second tip is. Although it is done automatically, for maximum assurance do it manually as well.

Then just turn off iMessage and activation lock, we want to sell iPhone online, not trouble. Without a doubt, you might have already done it, but I’ll say it nonetheless. Sign out of iTunes and the App Store and the iCloud. And last but not the least, restore it to factory settings. The above isn’t worth the effort if you don’t factory reset the phone. Now go and sell iPhone online for cash.

 

Craigslist or eBay

All preparations are complete, and you are good to go. Time to find a suitable buyer with a preferable price and have at it. Isn’t that easy? No, it’s not. If it’s an iPhone, the world knows the worth, and everybody wants one at a reduced price point. Finding a good buyer is like fishing in a pond of frogs. People rarely just call or email and say “I’m down where do we meet?”.

So, what’s your first choice? It must be craigslist or eBay, huh. The best way to sell iPhone online for cash where you don’t know a bit about the buyer. Undoubtedly you will find, thousands of adds on every possible thing that can be sold online at varying prices. But this benefit comes with an equally dangerous risk. Unless by one in a hundred coincidence, your friend or relative is the one who contacts you, you have no information on the buyer. Still, it is not as if you are the only to post an iPhone add.

 

Selling it the traditional way

Many people still like to do things the classic way. A lot more still don’t trust the online market. But if you want to physically walk in a shop to sell your piece of hardware, rather than sell phone online. Remember is don’t know how to bargain properly, you are walking into a snake’s burrow. The shopkeeper will indirectly force you to bid his will, and you’ll go home with a gloomy face.

If you decide to sell an iPhone, especially an iPhone, the shopkeeper will tell you many reduced prices than they are. But can you blame them? They are running a business, in business you don’t act leniently. They will deliberately, talk as if their told prices are the best of all. They want to sell it for profit to the next buyer.

Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program

With Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program, you don’t need to worry about being locked into carrier plans for years. You can make monthly payments on the device and become eligible to upgrade every year. It automatically adds your iPhone in AppleCare+. You will get a broken device or a cracked screen fixed at less price.

If you enrolled last year when the 8, 8 plus and the mighty X were introduced. You are eligible to for these new flagships. Although you signed a 24-month contract, you can trade in your old iPhone (in good condition) for a brand new one, no charge. It is possible to get a newer device just after 6-months, but you are required to pre-pay the next 6-months beforehand.

 

Apple’s Giveback Program

Splendid new for iPhone X owners, Apple will be providing these users with flat $525 off of the new XS as trade-ins (device needs to in good condition). iPhone 8 plus will win you $800 and the 8 model up to $350.

You may also like to know that a discount of $250 is offered for Apple Watch and iPad trade-ins. Although iPads can go till $1000 (almost the new iPhone). Users can confirm their value by testing their serial no# on the site.

In the update, a month ago, trade-in programs were narrowed down by Apple. Customers were given instant credit for new online purchases. Previously, the program required customers to buy a new product first and receive an Apple Store gift card or debit card with the value after. The other alternative was visiting an Apple Store to make a trade-in and new purchase at the same time.

So, there are multiple ways you can get your hands on an XS or XS Max. When are you getting yours?
