Selling Your iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus
The release of the eight generation of iPhone, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, in September 2014 marked a major milestone in the development of the iPhone. Not only did the standard model of the iPhone, now the iPhone 6, have a screen size that was nearly an inch larger than previous models, Apple released a Plus variant. The increased size on the standard model and In addition to the major increase in touchscreen real estate, there were also considerable structural changes to the iPhone. For the iPhone 6 Apple decided to replace the glass back with an aluminum casing, that lead to the famous “Bendgate”. iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users reported that their devices seems to be bending in their pockets. The issue caused quite a bit of controversy and left many consumers wondering if it was worth it to buy the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Despite the early issues with the iPhone 6 & 6 Plus, Apple still sold over 100 million units in under six months!
Common Reasons to Sell Your iPhone 6 or Sell Your iPhone 6 Plus
The iPhone 6 is now over two years and two generations old, so it is definitely no longer the fastest device on the market. While both devices have the very powerful Apple A8 processor, the newer models of iPhone have tremendously more processing power and major improvements to the hardware (camera, screen, etc.). The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are also the last model to not feature the 3D touch. So if you are someone who is prone to experiencing a technological fear of missing out, then you may want to consider selling your iPhone 6 to get a newer model of iPhone. If you are someone who likes to have the most current model of iPhone, it is absolutely worth it to invest in a really tough case (Otterbox, Lifeproof, etc.)
If you aren’t worried about being a few generations behind on your smartphone, you may still want to sell your iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus because your device is no longer the best condition. With the bigger screens on both models, there is quite a bit more glass that can crack! Cracking the glass on your iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is probably the most common way these devices receive damage. Most of the time the device is still fully functional, maybe just a little dangerous to use! The high likelihood of the screen cracking is actually a good reason to use screen protectors, because while they may not prevent glass from cracking, they will hold it together behind the plastic so you can use the device until you are able to sell your iPhone 6.
Another very unfortunate reason why you might want to sell your iPhone 6 is water damage. Water damage is usually the end of the line for an iPhone, but there are a few last ditch efforts that may work if you are trying to save your iPhone from a watery grave. Unfortunately, when an iPhone is exposed to considerable moisture the LCD will likely be damaged and will be partially or completely non-functional. If you are accident prone or like to take selfies at the pool, it may be worth it to invest in a waterproof case.
Best Ways to Sell Your iPhone 6 or Sell Your iPhone 6 Plus
While the iPhone 6 is not the oldest generation of iPhone that you’ll be able to get a good price for, the value of your iPhone 6 will continue to decrease as new iPhone models are released. So the best time to sell your iPhone 6 is soon than later! You can often trade in your older model of iPhone to your carrier for a credit on your account. This is a great option if you will be continuing with the same carrier for the next couple years and you can often get the most money from doing this type of trade-in. You’ll be getting a lot of value for your trade-in, but it’s only worth if you are staying with your current carrier.
However, if you want to get cash for your iPhone 6, the easiest and safest option are buyback sites. These sites will often cover the costs of shipping your device to them and they will usually include the option to be paid by PayPal, which means you can get your payment quickly! When using a buyback site you want to make sure that the company has clearly laid out in its terms and conditions that your cash offer is guaranteed based on the condition of the device you have indicated.
