Staring at your savings account with tears in your eyes after preordering a new iPhone? Sell your old iPhone today to recover some of your hard-earned cash, and get the best price from Cult of Mac.

We make the whole process quick and simple — and we typically pay more than anyone else.

Apple devices hold their value well, and there’s never a shortage of people looking to snap up second-hand models at a reduced price. But selling on markets like eBay and Craigslist can be risky and expensive. That’s why you should sell your old iPhone to us.

Why sell your old iPhone to Cult of Mac

We’ve teamed up with the marvelous folks at MyPhones Unlimited to ensure our readers get the best price for unwanted iPads, iPhones and other devices.

We typically pay more than other buyback services like Amazon, GameStop, and Gazelle. We even cough up more than Apple in many cases.

For example, Apple pays up to $460 for an iPhone XS, while we pay up to $580. Apple pays up to $220 for an iPhone 8, while we pay up to $270. And we won’t turn you away if your old iPhone is broken.

What’s more, we won’t tell you where you can spend your cash. Apple issues you with credit that you can spend only in the Apple Store, while we pay real cash you can spend anywhere.

How to sell your old iPhone to Cult of Mac

Here’s how it works:

  1. You visit our buyback page and get a quote for your old iPad
  2. We send you a box and a return label so you can ship your device to us for free
  3. Once we’ve received your device, we’ll issue a check that you’ll receive in around a week

The quote you get today is good for 14 days, which gives you time to set up your brand new iPhone before you have to part with its predecessor.

What’s more, we promise that none of the gadgets we receive end up in landfill. They’re either recycled responsibly, or refurbished and sold on.
