If you recently bought a new iPhone for yourself, or simply you’re just about to have that idea, you may want to know the best way to gain benefit from the old phone before selling it to someone else. Although making a trade-in is more convenient, you won’t get as much as you’ve expected. Due to such reasons, what should we do with our old iPhones to have the best price? Okay, here’re some tips that can be done easily and quickly to level up the overall quality of your old iPhone and its price.
BACK UP YOUR PHONE
Basically, no one wants others to handle their own stuff, so everybody wipes out all the data stored on the phone. As such, all you need to do is to make sure that all of your data stored onto iCloud or any other storage spaces in advance. It’s easy to import all the data into your new iPhone by switching on the iCloud Backup feature in the old iPhone’s Settings menu. Also, you can get it backed up through iTunes with the help of a laptop.
RESET YOUR PHONE
Once you’re stored all the important data, it’s time to reset your iPhone. First, you need to deactivate the “Find My iPhone” feature and disconnect paired devices such as Apple Watch.
Next, sign out from your current Apple ID, and then remove the SIM card.
Now, you’re ready for erasing the iPhone: Head to “Settings” > “General” > “Reset” > Choose “Erase All Content and Settings.”
CLEAN IT UP AND ESTIMATE YOUR PHONE’S VALUE
Now, we have to mention the phone’s appearance. You should start removing your beloved case, stickers, and the likes of them that can negatively affect its physical look. In short, you should try your best to polish the phone and it could be a “more professional” deal, as long as you don’t tell the lie about it.
Taking some photos of the phone is not a bad idea, especially you tend to sell it via online marketplaces. In addition, they’re a lot useful in case the buyer complains about further damage.
You should pay a visit to Amazon India or Flipkart to survey and estimate how much the phone would be, and set your own price based on current conditions of the old iPhone.
SELL YOUR IPHONE
After all, your final mission is to look for customers. There’re several places for you to market your product, some are free-to-use while the others will charge you a fee. You can create posts on your Facebook timeline, Marketplace, or join local groups to approach people living in nearby regions. Needless to say, Flipkart and Amazon India are also great channels.
Keep in mind that your phone should be good enough to continue undertaking daily tasks when it’s on the hand of the buyer. What’s more, just make sure you don’t make a lie to the new owner, because you’re also another new owner of another phone. Good luck!
