Sell Your iPhone 5S for the Most Cash

In September 2013, Apple released the iPhone 5S at its headquarters in Cupertino, California. The 7th generation of the iPhone included tremendous upgrades to the internal hardware of the iPhone, while generally maintaining the look of its predecessor, the iPhone 5. The major additions to the iPhone in this model were the Touch ID sensor, a 64-bit Apple A7 dual core processor, and an improved camera.

The Touch ID created numerous new features that significantly improved the security of the iPhone and its OS. Despite its promotion by Apple and generally good public reception, the Touch ID created quite a bit of controversy amongst cybersecurity experts. Obviously a biometric security feature like a fingerprint sensor would make iPhones much safer to use, but it was also the first time that a security feature like this was included on a smartphone. Many security experts cautioned consumers to be too reliant on the Touch ID since it was unclear how well it could distinguish between the user’s actual fingerprint and a fake one. Overall, there weren’t any major issues with the Touch ID on the iPhone 5S and it has remained a major component of the succeeding models of iPhones.

The iPhone 5S was also the first smartphone to include a 64-bit processor, which is the type of processor that is used for laptops and personal computers. This was a major development in smartphone technology, as the iPhone 5S was now capable of processing speeds that could be found on much larger devices. At the time of its release, the iPhone 5S was the only smartphone on the market to feature such powerful processing capabilities. The A7 processor also allowed for increased graphics performance.

In addition to the improved quality of the camera on the iPhone 5S included a very exciting feature, slow motion. The slow motion feature allowed users to take videos at 120 fps, which gave users the ability to produce high quality slow motion videos like never before. Other new features on the iPhone 5S included a “burst mode”, a rapid shutter feature that took 10 photos a second.

Thinking About Selling Your iPhone 5S

The iPhone 5S is now over three years old, which might as well be ancient in smartphone years! The iPhone 5S is still a solid smartphone, but Apple has made some groundbreaking improvements in the appearance, processing power, and screen size. Apple was able to handle some of the early issues with this model, so it’s not likely that persistent hardware or software issues are why you would like to sell your iPhone 5S. The most common reason to sell your iPhone 5S is wanting to upgrade your smartphone! Since the release of the iPhone 5S, Apple has significantly increased the screen size of the basic model, added a Plus variant, and made numerous improvements to the internal hardware of the iPhone.

It’s unfortunate, but accidents happen and cracking the screen of your iPhone 5S is all too easy. Unless you have an expensive case on your iPhone 5S, it’s fairly easy to crack the screen. But even if you do crack the screen, you can still get quite a bit of cash for it on numerous buyback sites. With Buyback Boss, you can sell your iPhone 5S with a cracked screen for the best guaranteed cash offer on the Internet!

How to Sell Your iPhone 5S

Because the iPhone 5S is an older generation of iPhone, it’s not likely that carriers will offer the same trade-in deals. Your best option to sell your iPhone 5S for the most value is going to be either through a buyback site or on Craigslist and eBay. There are pros and cons to both ways of selling your device, you just need to make sure that you 1. Feel comfortable with the transaction 2. Are getting the most money for your device!

Selling your iPhone 5S on Craigslist can be a very quick way to get cash for you device, but it is very easy to get scammed, so make sure you are being safe and cautious when doing any kind of person to person transaction over the Internet. eBay can be just as fast, but it is a little easier than using Craigslist or an in-person deal.

The easiest and safest way of selling your iPhone 5S will be a buyback site. These are online companies that purchase used electronics in a variety of conditions. You can get a great deal on devices that may have a cracked screen, water damage, LCD damage or devices that are completely non-functional! Make sure when using a buyback site the offer you are given is not at the discretion of the buyback company, this means that your offer could change substantially once the company evaluates the device.
