How do I sell my iPhone 13?
To sell your Apple iPhone 13 and get the most cash for it, just follow these three simple steps:
- Compare offers – Take a look at all the current quotes we've got from recyclers in the comparison table above. Tell us your phone’s storage size, condition, and whether it’s locked or unlocked, and we’ll show you the most accurate offers from recyclers right now
- Send your device – Choose an offer you like the look of, then click it to go to the buyer and enter your details. They'll send you a postage pack so you can mail them your Apple iPhone 13
- Get paid – Once your device arrives with the recycler, they’ll give it a check. If everything is ok with your device, they'll send you money via your preferred payment method, whether that’s by bank transfer, cheque, PayPal, or another way
Can I sell my iPhone 13 if it’s damaged?
Sure – many recyclers are happy to buy broken and damaged devices. You should be able to sell a phone with a cracked screen, broken buttons, lots of chips and scratches, or other faults. However, recyclers are unlikely to accept water-damaged phones.
Of course, you’ll get less money for a broken iPhone 13 than a fully functioning one – and how much you get will depend on the condition of your device. However, there's still a chance you can get some cash for it, and sending it to a recycler is much better for the environment than throwing it away.
To find out if you can sell your broken or damaged Apple iPhone 13, select the 'broken' option on the comparison grid, and be as honest as you can about its condition. We'll show you all the offers we can find from recyclers so you can see your options.
Each recycling company will have its own conditions on what counts as broken and what they’ll accept, so be sure to check.

How much can I sell my iPhone 13 for?
To see the available quotes we have from UK recyclers, take a look at the table on this page. You can compare how much they're offering and what their services are like.
The highest quotes of all are on brand new devices, ones that aren't locked to a network, and ones in excellent condition with no broken or replaced parts.
When is the best time to trade in my iPhone 13?
The newer the phone, the more money you’ll get for it. So, if you’re planning to upgrade your phone, it’s a good idea to sell your old iPhone as soon as you’re sure you’ll no longer be using it.
It’s also worth bearing in mind that new iPhones are usually released every September – meaning offers on old iPhones will likely dip after the new models go on sale. So, you might want to sell your iPhone 13 before then.
How long does it take to get paid?
You’ll usually get your payment a day or two after the recycler has received your phone and checked it over.
Why should I trade in my phone with SellMyMobile?
There are plenty of reasons why it’s a good idea to trade in your old phone with SellMyMobile.
First, it’s an easy way to earn some money while decluttering your home. Rather than having your old devices collecting dust at the bottom of your drawers, why not sell them on for some cash?
Not to mention, you’ll be doing your bit for the environment, too. Recycling can give an unused device a new lease of life – whether that’s by being refurbished and sold on, or broken down into parts that can be reused in other electronics.

And there’s no easier way to do this than via SellMyMobile, the UK’s first mobile recycling comparison site. We can help you find the best offers for your old tech, from companies we’ve carefully vetted.

Can I sell my iPhone 13 if it’s water damaged?
It's possible, though you're less likely to be able to sell a water damaged device. Some recyclers buy gadgets with liquid damage if they still switch on and work properly, while others won't buy them at all.
All water damaged devices count as broken, so select 'broken' from the table above to find offers. Then, check with the recycler to see if they accept water-damaged devices.
Can I sell my iPhone 13 if it’s broken?
Absolutely – most recyclers will happily accept phones that are broken, whether that’s cosmetic damage (e.g. cracked screens, scratches and dents, broken buttons), faulty pixels on the display, or operating system problems.
Each recycling company will have its own conditions on what counts as broken and what they’ll accept, so be sure to check. Visit our page on selling broken phones for more info.
What happens to my handset once it’s been traded in?
What happens to your old device depends on its age and condition.
If it’s still in decent working condition, it’ll be resold as a refurbished phone.
Even if your phone can’t be sold on, it contains valuable parts and materials that can still be reused. The recycler will break down your device and extract these materials in an environmentally friendly way.
Some of those parts will go in other refurbished phones, while recyclable elements – such as nickel, gold, and platinum – can be melted down and reused for other purposes.
